LONG BEACH, CALIF. USA — Third grader Sara Williams, center, joins her class as they listen to Lowell Elementary School teacher Pam Parkins read called “The Man Who Walked Between the Towers” on September 8, 2011, in Long Beach, Calif. The book is about Philippe Petit’s high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, New York, on August 7, 1974. The last page of the book simple states, “Now the towers are gone”. Each year on Sept. 11, Parkins reads the book to her students and discusses the event of 9/11 on terms her third graders can understand. See more pictures>>
