Remembering September 11th, 2001



Here are two newly posted videos from our September 11th docu-drama from back in 2002. The above is kindergartener Carol (who would eventually turn up in the PS22 Chorus of 2007) recalling the events of September 11th and her hopes for the future. Below is one of the most compelling scenes of the movie, in which the kids speak with wisdom beyond their years on the issue of racism against Muslims. And man oh man, if it doesn't make you wonder if the world wouldn't be a much better place if it were being run by the 10 year olds.... Our hearts go out on this day to all those who've lost friends and family 9 years ago today.
