Weighing History

On Friday September 9th, 2010, Teacher Jo Ann Rigano explains 9/11 to her third grade class. After 9/11, her third grade class sponsored an NYC firehouse sending gifts and care packages everyday.

Screen shots from the documentary, The Art of Memories, currently in production:

The average third grader is nine years old – most of the children weren’t even born on 9/11.

NYC Firefighter Frank Leeb has spoken with every student in Jo Ann’s class every September 11th since 9/11.  2010 was the first year it fell on a weekend. He called the class on Monday September 13 that year.
