The first edition of this book was filled with big eyed babies that were born 11 September 2001. Ten years later this book shows those same big eyed babies as young children. Now they show eyes filled with hope and big toothy grins. Also, each child has made a piece of art that is included with their photograph, along with a quote from the child on how they plan to make the world a better place.
This is the first time I have read anything about this horrible day, that made me feel happy. Usually anything about this day fiills me with an overwhelming sense of helplessness and sadness. But,looking at the beautiful faces of these children and reading about their hopes and dreams, makes me realize that the world is still a wonderful place.
There are 50 children in this book, one from each state. All of the children express good things about the world, even though they are all very aware of what happened on the day they were born. This is not a book about grief and sadness, it is a book of Hope and Happiness. This can be seen in their art work, in their faces, and in their writings about making the world a better place. I think this book is a lovely tribute to that day!
