The new law requires New York schools to provide a moment of silence to observe the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Will this moment of silence be followed up by saying the Pledge of Allegiance? How about teaching them some unbiased fact-based history?

Just in time for the 18th anniversary of 9/11, New York state approved a law mandating that schools observe a moment of silence on the anniversary of the attack.
The New York Post reports, “The law calls for a brief moment of silence at the beginning of the school day every 9/11 to encourage dialogue and education in the classroom among a new generation of students who weren’t alive during the 2001 terror attacks … ”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who signed the bill into law, stated, “9/11 was one of the single darkest periods in this state’s and this nation’s history, and we owe it to those we lost and to the countless heroes who ran toward danger that day and the days that followed to do everything we can to keep their memory alive. By establishing this annual day of remembrance and a brief moment of silence in public schools, we will help ensure we never forget — not just the pain of that moment but of the courage, sacrifice, and outpouring of love that defined our response.” More
We are not heading the right direction as a country when that has to be a law. It should come out the respect for those who lost their lives for living in America.

Now, how about after that moment of silence they teach these kids what really happened and who is responsible for the atrocities. I know the phrase “radical Islam” is hard for them to say. The task of every adult is to keep history vital for the next generation.

I fully support this. I also believe that teachers and schools administrators across this nation should work together to teach our children, with an unbiased approach, about the events of that day, how it STILL affects their lives. #NeverForget
