A Little Girl Asks about 9/11

 

Mads: Mom, tell me about the Twin Towers.  

Me: The Twin Towers? What? What Twin Towers are you talking about?

Mads: You know … The ones in New York that aren’t there any more.

Me: Wow. How do you know about that?

Mads: Grampa told me. They were the tallest buildings in New York City. There was an airplane … what happened?

Me: Wow. Well, some bad guys wanted to harm our country and make us all afraid. So they made some planes crash into some very important places in our country and a lot of people were killed.

Mads: How did those bad people get onto the planes? Could they get into a plane again? Why did they want to make us afraid? What country were the bad guys from? I hope it wasn’t Texas, ’cause I like Texas. Oh, look! Cows!

I’m really rather happy the conversation ended that way.

Grampa, thank you for teaching Mads.

Mads, thanks for asking.

Maria, thank you for letting me share your conversation.

  1. Loved this. And just goes to show that you can talk to your kids about anything. You just have to speak to them at their level.
