-As educators, we hear challenging questions

all the time and recognize

how difficult it can be to answer them.

So when we're designing our activities for young visitors,

we always try to find ways to engage

both caregivers and children in conversation.

When we talk about subjects like memorialization and remembrance

and what that means, we have an activity

where children create roses out of tissue paper,

and they can then go up to the memorial

and leave the rose on the parapet

next to that victim's name

so that they're making the connection

between the person and the memory

and understanding what memorialization really means.

With teenagers, we focus on themes related to repercussions

because they process the world through their own experience.

We want to help understand that 9/11

isn't just a historical event but rather something

that continues to shape the world today

and affects their life in ways they may not even understand.

So it's up to us to provide a welcoming and safe space

to explore these topics, share these stories.

That's what we're here for.
