A Personal Tribute to the Heroes of September 11 by Arun Kumar Tripathi

Arun is a research scholar and network educator....

Wired Kids and Cyberangels Take a Stand Against Terrorism and help people everywhere to heal their wounds.

Children from around the world have been touched and affected by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. They need a way of sharing what they are feeling and thinking with each other. They also need a way of starting the process of moving on…and feeling that they are contributing to the healing. To Join the E-Mail America Project  email join@wiredkids.org 

Now, together with our professionals, partners and supporters, WiredKids, Cyberangels and Epals are launching a special program to help the healing process for children from around the world. 

The program will encourage that children and tens worldwide send e-mails (or letters) to the American People, President Bush, Mayor Giuliani, the Rescue Workers, the Firefighters, The Police Officers, the Families of the Victims,  Schoolchildren from other countries, Families of the Heroes of the downed jet, and our Rescue Dog mascot. We will post these letters (without any personally identifying information from the children) at our site and at our partners’ and supporters’ sites, and will deliver them by hand to those to whom they are addressed. We will post the replies at the site as well. 

Children will also be able to support and name a new puppy that will be trained for rescue work. They will also be able to deputize their pets (real pets and stuffed animals) as Deputy Rescue pets. They can follow the training of their rescue puppy and the work of our mascot real rescue dog, that helped in the WTC rescue efforts.

Helping Schools in the WTC Area

There is a way we can constructively contribute to children and their teachers who have been displaced by the tragedy in New York. Riva Korashan, at the United Federation of Teachers, Teacher Center in New York, has requested  help to supply three schools, two elementary schools and one K-8 school, involving 1000 students with the basics they need for everyday classroom activities. The schools have been closed and relocated. Teachers and children left everything behind when they evacuated to safety on Tuesday.

These educators and students need everything, book bags, pencils, paper, classroom books, paper, teacher supplies, classroom supplies, etc. Financial donations are welcome also.

Please send your donations to:
UFT Teacher Center/School Relief
48 East 21st Street - 10th Floor
New York, NY 10010
