9/11 Tribute

I did this right after 9/11 happened, thinking of all the kids that were left without a parent or other family member. Every year on this anniversary I want to include 9/11 in our homeschooling, but I can't. I can't watch the documentaries that have been made about it, or the news reports from that day because it hurts too much. All those innocent people who went to work one day and had their lives end there. Where the plane went down in Pennsylvania is not far from my hometown and I've been there several times. A senseless and horrific tragedy. Instead of focussing on the cowardly terrorists who brought this day about, I wanted to focus on the children.

Another super drawing! I agree that some things on the news are jut too painful to watch - I don't think the media is right to say we are all desensitized to the things that are happening or have happened.
