Sixth-grader remembers 9/11/01

I really related to Ashok Kaul’s poem in Stone Soup remembering the first day of kindergarten. Kaul lives in New York City. We live next to Boston, where two of the flights originated, so some of my neighbors and colleagues lost loved ones (or didn’t: my neighbor’s daughter was the usual flight attendant on one of the flights, but had a dentist appointment). It was the first day of kindergarten and of preschool for my daughters, too.
