Random Act of Kid-ness: Doing Good in Light of Tragedy

As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11 this Sunday, we feature a very special Random Act(s) of Kid-ness from Illinois, where a teacher is asking her students to do good deeds as part of the National 9/11 Day of Service.

“When you study 9/11 in the schools, it’s always so depressing and so horrible. I want the kids to see that even when something horrible happens, you can take it, learn something from it, and turn it into a positive act for your future.”

-Christine Adrian, teacher

Read the full story here, and let us know what you think of this inspiring effort.

Note: This Sunday, the Zimmer will be offering free admission all day. We will also be hosting a very special program, Wishes for Our World. The Zimmer is a place for families across our city to gather and play together. Families will contribute to a communal art piece for the museum created from our collective dreams for a better world.
