IndyKids asked these kids in Queens, New York, how they feel about the United States government’s decision to go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
I feel bad about what happened, but I feel better about how they’re rebuilding [Afghanistan and Iraq].
Patricia Tam, 10
It was a bad idea for planes to crash into buildings. I think it’s bad because people die.
Francesca Cardenas, 11
What I think of the 9/11 tragedy is that it was a very depressing moment because hundreds of people died. I think it is sad how such beautiful buildings were knocked down. It is horrible how people are now experiencing consequences of the terrible 9/11.
