My youngest wasn't born yet when the terrorists attacked American soil on 9/11/2001, he's ten now and in the last few days has started asking questions about what happened. Time to break out YouTube and start showing some of the bad in the world I guess.

Some may think it's too soon, he's too young, I say horse feathers. In my humble opinion if they're old enough to ask reasonable questions, they're old enough to get reasonable answers. It's all in how you present it. The main thing I want my kids to understand is that there are very bad people in this world who want to take away the freedom that our great nation was founded upon, and that those people are willing to do anything to make that happen. That's why we are so grateful to have the men and women in our armed forces and our first responders here at home ready to take on the bad guys and help those in need.
