We have created three discussion guides to be used by groups after the event. If a number of folks from the same group/organization (service organization, church group, club, etc.) choose to attend, the adult guide will provide some thoughtful questions that can be used to start a conversation about how people respond in a crisis, why we are motivated to step forward and help, and how the human capacity for kindness can be harnessed and channeled in our everyday lives.
There are also discussion guides for students (middle school and high school). These youngsters are from a generation not yet born on 9/11. What they know of the event is likely to be only of the tragedy, the loss of lives, and the consequences in changing the world stage. What they NEED to know is that ordinary people responded in extraordinary ways in the aftermath of the attack. They need to know about the selfless acts of kindness that should be the lasting memory of 9/11
