As all of you know, today marks 11 years since that fateful day when America came under attack by terrorists.  Up until this year, we haven’t discussed the details of the days events with our boys as we felt they were too young to understand.  However, my oldest son has developed quite an interest in history…especially American history.  Over the past few weeks he’s been reading through the “I Survived” book series by Lauren Tarshis.  One of the books in this series focuses on the attacks of 9/11 which led us into a conversation about the conflict in the Middle East and how the events of the attack on America unfolded.  It was a difficult and eye-opening discussion, but as one of the most significant historical events to take place in my lifetime I knew it was important to share.  We’ll never forget!

Here’s the book, “I Survived the Attacks of September 11th, 2001″, I mentioned above.  If your child is interested in historical, action packed books this is a GREAT series…I would highly recommend it!
