    I am a first grade teacher within 30 miles of NYC. Today when the students came into class they were asking questions like, "Why are all the buildings in the city falling", "Is the whole city going to be destroyed", "Who would do something like this to hurt others." I have many students who is missing relatives fathers (NYPD and NYFD), cousins, aunts, and uncles that worked in either buildings. I held normal meeting time and discussed the students concerns. I let each students share a story about the events that they had saw on TV and stuff they had heard from their parents. I ended the discussion by talking about all the heroes that were helping save survivors and all the good citizens that were volunteering their time and blood. I also told the students that I was here for them if they felt they needed to talk more or if they had any other questions! Then I followed our normal routines for the rest of the day...
