YOUNG VOICES: Tragedy reminds us to watch out for each other

YOUNG VOICES: Let's pull together instead of pulling each other apart

On Sept. 11, 2001, I was in kindergarten. I had gotten back from a day at school, and I'll never forget the terror I saw on my parent's faces as they watched the coverage on the news.
