Remembering 9/11: A Children’s Edition

It’s often difficult to accurately describe historical events to children without going too far. Parents fear the story’s details might be too severe for the ears of young children. As horrific as the terrorist attacks on 9/11 were, it’s important to recall the silver lining: the servant heart of thousands.

9.11 Helping the Heroes: A Salvation Army Story is the perfect tool for conveying the events of 9/11 to your children and grandchildren. Written by acclaimed children’s writer Linda Carlson Johnson, the book focuses on the volunteer efforts at Ground Zero with emphasis on the unity, love and service that was demonstrated following the horrific events of that day.

Along with over 1,000 volunteers from New York City alone, thousands of volunteers and emergency disaster relief workers nationwide traveled to the front lines of need to help.

Such an amazing part of the story!

The Salvation Army was a large contributor to the relief efforts at Ground Zero; providing food, drinks, clothing, blankets, masks, socks, hardhats, gloves, shelter and counseling for the many workers and volunteers.

Copies will be available online within a few weeks.
