|TALKING ABOUT TERRORISM AND WAR
Ever since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, newspapers and television have been rife with heartrending images of mayhem and unspeakable anguish. For American families with children, these graphic depictions of the ultimate consequences of hate can no longer be easily dismissed with glib reassurances such as, "It can never happen in the United States." And so we are faced with a terrible dilemma. Do we shield children from this tragedy? Do we limit the immediacy of our own intake of information to keep the tumbling towers from being burned forever in their minds? Or should we expect them to join us fully in our understandable obsession with televised news about the disasters? How do we explain it to them?
