    For Tina Kiehn, an AmeriCorps NCCC member in Aurora, IL, the morning of September 11, 2001, started out as a day like any other. She was at her service site, helping a class of first graders adjust to the new school year. With summer just behind them, Kiehn and her team expected a normal daily schedule: classes, recess, homework help.

    Eleven years later and the tide has surely turned, at least in one very significant way. The anniversary of September 11th is no longer only a day known for a horrific tragedy on our national landscape. It is now also America's largest day of charitable service and good deeds, in honor of my late brother and all those who perished that sunny September morning.

    September 11th can be a challenging topic for educators. For younger students who weren't born or were very young in 2001, it's history. For older students and teachers, it's a vivid memory that may feel like a current event. Finding a way to make the day meaningful across the generations requires finesse and planning.
