How do we help children understand something they do not remember? Most children were not yet born on September 11, 2001, but during the next several weeks they will be reminded of 9/11.

I asked a few of my clergy friends to join me in writing prayers of peaceful remembrance for children. We may not be able to answer all of their questions, but we can share God's gift of prayer. These prayers express hope, love, fear, confusion and the power of God's grace.
