Do you leave it to the schools, or do you take it upon yourself to teach your children about 9/11?
Today's Moms Talk question is multi-faceted. We want to know if you teach your kids about Sept. 11. If you do, how do you explain it to them?

The former clergyman was approached by the Rev. Steve Stultz Costello, co-pastor of the North Canton Faith United Methodist Church, to organize the commemoration’s activities with the help of area Christians, Jews and Muslims and representatives of local schools and organizations. “This event really took on a life of its own quickly.
