How to Teach Our Children About 9/11

Local school children attend the funeral of retired FDNY firefighter Ray Pfeifer on June 2, 2017 in Hicksville, New York. Pfeifer, 59, fought a years-long battle with cancer attributed to his work at Ground Zero after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The 27-year FDNY veteran spent about eight months working on the pile site of debris in lower Manhattan and was instrumental in getting lawmakers to pass the James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act.
