I am a first grade teacher at Mendenhall River Community School. I came to school numb and was not sure what I would say to a group of 6-year-olds who had seen the news but did not understand the implications of what they had seen. When they got to school we talked about it and then decided to write a letter to President Bush. I was so impressed with their heartfelt words that I wanted to share them.
Dear President Bush,
We are very sorry and sad people got hurt and died. We are sorry the buildings crashed down. Please figure out how to stop bad people from ever doing this again. We trust you to do the right thing for our country. We're sorry as we can be.
