Queens lawmaker’s bill creating a 9/11 observance in all city public schools approved in state Senate

New York’s Senate has approved a bill that would establish September 11th as a day of remembrance for city public schools.

Queens state Senator Joe Addabbo introduced the bill to acknowledge the anniversary of the terrorist attacks and educate those children too young to remember the attacks, reports Max Parrott.

“While it may seem to many of us like the attacks only happened yesterday, it’s important to realize that the vast majority of the children in our schools today weren’t even born when this tragedy occurred,” said Addabbo.
