On September 11, 2014, we thought about what we were doing on that day many years ago. I was in Memphis, head of Lamplighter Montessori School. We invited the then Executive Director of the American Montessori Society, Michael Eanes, to spend two days with our school community. I was ready to pick him up at his hotel when I was alerted to the first crash into the tower. I remember watching horrified as the second tower was hit. Words cannot express the impact it had on our school community in Memphis, many miles from NYC. Michael was worried about his staff back in NYC and his family in Connecticut. It took 4 extra days for him to be able to get back home.
Today, I received this story of The Survivor Tree. May it bring you as much peace and hope as it did for me.
