#MadonnaNovember #I‘llRemember
I‘ll remember: I was working in a school the day of the Challenger explosion.The kindergarteners were watching on TV the first teacher, Christa McAuliffe, go into space.Then the unimaginable happened.- the shuttle looked to be engulfed in flames, broke up, & fell out of the sky. Students created a book to express their reactions. Tagged book are poems compiled in hopes of comforting children post 9/11.

kspenmoll @Nute You are so welcome! It‘s a lovely book of poetry, put together by Georgia Heard, to help children right after 9/11.That event really changed my son,he was in first grade at the time.We visited relatives in NY often & he loved the Twin Towers.Like so many,we also have a close friend who lost her brother. He lost his innocence that day. This poetry helped - (edited) 11mo

#OctoberPutASpellOnYou Day 12: This collection of 18 poems was put together by Georgia Heard during the wake of the World Trade Center Tragedy to provide some semblance of meaning to young people who have witnessed and lived through this cataclysmic event - like lighting a #Candle for those who died and lived/endured it. I am sharing one of my faves from the collection: Wendell Berry, of course. My full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-9tZ

"Do what you will, but strengthen the things that remain." - Nancy Wood
Georgia Heard , at request of superintendent of District 2 in Manhattan, compiled poems of comfort to be read to NYC children who had witnessed the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/12. Thought book appropriate for #shadesofblue #somethingforsept
