Last year we attended our local Tunnel to Towers Run honoring firefighter Stephen Siller who died on 9/11 after running 5K with 60lbs of fire gear on his back. My husband is a firefighter with SAFD, and I took the kids to watch while he ran the race.
I can’t imagine the tragedies that may happen during our children’s own lifetimes, but I do know that we are in good hands with the men and women who serve our communities every day. Thank you for all the big and little sacrifices, and I especially thank my husband, our own personal hero.
Who are the heroes in your life? And how do you talk to your kids about world-changing events like 9/11?
