Here is the kind of nonsense that America's sharia-compliant culture is foisting on our unsuspecting young, thereby disarming the very generation that will have to defeat this scourge.
This is from David Paine, the president and co-founder of the 9/11 Day Observance and MyGoodDeed, the nonprofit group that organizes the 9/11 Day Observance each year.
For those of you with younger children, we wanted to provide a few of the wonderful and constructive ways you can include your children in learning about 9/11 Day this year and paying tribute through good deeds.
Of course, these are just a handful of helpful ideas. Please visit our Facebook/911day page to review other ideas, and post your own suggestions for other parents to consider as well.
Here are things you can consider for tomorrow or later this week:
- Plan to visit your children’s grandparents or other relative close to you. If you can’t plan a trip, make a phone call and have the kids get on the line.
- Create a crafts project where your children draw a painting about people helping one other (in a positive setting), then post on Facebook or share with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Get out the baking flour and make cookies for your children’s’ teachers this year, or come up with another way your children can say “thanks,” like making a card or writing a note.
- Consider also delivering cupcakes or something like that to a local fire station or police station. Just call ahead to let them know you are coming.
- Consider assembling and sending a care package to military personnel overseas. Google this project idea and you’ll find many resources to help you. Just make sure you’re working with a respected nonprofit. You can also research ways your children can write and send letters to military service personnel.
- Have your children help you go through your closet (long overdue), picking things that could be donated to Goodwill, your religious organization, or another nonprofit, like a winter coat you don't need, or a older pair of eyeglasses.
- If you have more than one child, and perhaps an older one, you can encourage the oldest to come up with a good deed idea with their siblings that can help the family, i.e., make their beds, help clean the house etc. (We can wish, can't we?)
- Plan to visit a local animal shelter, just to learn what they do. Later if you have the means, consider making a donation to the shelter in your child’s name.
Again these are just a few ideas!
In terms of teaching, you are the best judge of what to say to your children about 9/11. Many parents tell us they talk about how 9/11 was a “sad day" for our country, but that there was also lots of goodness as well, with so many people helping each other (which is why we all do good deeds on this day!) Again it all depends on your feelings and the age of your children.
We do encourage parents and teachers to always "document" what their children may do, by taking photos of them engaging in their good deeds, then talking about these photos with their children, and even posting them on the family's Facebook or Twitter pages (for friends and relatives to see.)
