9/11 Long Island Remembers: Elementary school kids

Some Long Island elementary school students have been discussing what they know about Sept. 11, even though they were not yet born when the attacks

WOODBURY - Some Long Island elementary school students have been discussing what they know about Sept. 11, even though they were not yet born when the attacks happened.

Children at Albany Avenue Elementary School shared stories of service and sacrifice as the 10th anniversary approaches. While the students don't have their own memories of that day, many have first-hand accounts of what happened from their firefighter parents.

Julia Komorowsi, 9, says she knows a lot about Sept. 11 because her father was among the brave first responders who saved lives on that day.

Classmate Daniel David Seaman, 7, also has a personal connection through his own name. He says his dad named him after two of his firefighter friends who were killed in the attacks.
