Honoring Heroes

Our friends, Will and Maddie invited us to join them for a trip to the fire station on September 11th. It is their family tradition to bring goodies to the firemen on 9/11 to honor them for their service to us.
 I know that my boys will never know what it was like to live in the USA before that day that changed everything. I thought this was such a great way to help them begin to understand the significance of September 11th, and the importance of honoring all the many heroes that gave their life so unselfishly for others.
Of course the Kaneohe firemen were super excited to receive the yummy snacks, and were so nice to let the kids  climb around all over the trucks, and drill them with 100 questions. I have a feeling this is our new family tradition also!
