Many of these lessons relate to preparation—to establishing plans and mechanisms for emergency action. But if 9 / 11 taught us anything, it’s that we However, as the events of 9 / 11 unfolded, many of them realized that they needed to start thinking of the media as allies—in part because their failed

Stephanie Holland said that today she’ll give her sixth-grade students a history lesson from the heart.

She’ll honor her 52-year-old mother — killed on 9/11 aboard American Airlines Flight 11 — by telling her students at the Merriam School in Acton about a day that changed America forever.

“I want to go to work,” said Holland, who usually attended memorials on this day. “I need to do what feels right.”

The lesson she’ll teach is an important one — and it’s kindness.

In the months and years after Cora Holland was killed aboard the doomed jetliner, Stephanie Holland said her family was overwhelmed by an outpouring of support from kindhearted strangers around the world who sent cards and stuffed animals.

People she had never met have shared their memories of her mother. Last year on Sept. 11, someone put flowers on her desk. The other day, a bank teller told Holland her mother was the “nicest person,” something she hears often from people in Sudbury, where her mother lived.

“Kindness goes a long way,” Holland, 48, told me. “With a day full of so many horrific images and memories, kindness is what I’ve chosen to focus on.”

Holland spent last Sept. 11 in the classroom, too. She read “14 Cows for America,” a true story about a tribe in Kenya that gave 14 cows — their most sacred animals — to the U.S. after the attacks.

Holland has the same group of students again this year. She plans on showing them a Nickelodeon special, “What Happened? The Story of September 11, 2001,” as well as a slide show of Sept. 11 memorials. She’ll share photos of her mother. She’ll ask her students to do something kind.

She also encourages her students to devote time to a cause they believe in. Since the Sept. 11 attacks, Holland has run the Boston Marathon three times and raised more than $18,000 for Boston Medical Center’s Good Grief Program, which helped Sept. 11 families.

“I’ve always tried to look at it as how can this make me grow,” Holland said. “It’s always going to be a part of my fabric and my history but I don’t want to let it define me or my life.”

Cora Holland was a huge Red Sox fan. She loved her family and loved to cook, and was known for her salsa and guacamole. When she was killed, Stephanie Holland’s son, Drew Brodney, was 2 years old and her daughter, Amelia Brodney, was almost 4 months. Now, Drew is a 20-year-old junior at Clark University in Worcester and Amelia is an 18-year-old freshman at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

Holland tells them all about their grandmother, how she loved going to the movies and shopping for her family. After the attacks, Cora Holland’s family found dresses in all different colors for baby Amelia in the back of her car. “She couldn’t go to the store without buying one of them something,” Holland said.

Holland’s students know all about her mother, too. “They’ve gotten to know her not just as this person they know who died, but also somebody who got me my first record when I was little and taught me to love ‘Sesame Street,’” Holland said.

What a wonderful way to honor her mother and teach young people the importance of being kind. The 9/11 Memorial website offers lesson plans for today, so does the National Education Society. They all give advice on how to educate a generation of kids with no memory of that day.

Stephanie Holland said she’ll ask her students to give someone a hug. Or say “Hi” to a student sitting alone in the cafeteria. “One act of kindness,” she added, “can make a person’s day.”

Now Facebook says it may remove Like counts.
Facebook could soon start hiding the Like counter on News Feed posts to protect users’ from envy and dissuade them from self-censorship. Instagram is already testing this in 7 countries including Canada and Brazil, showing a post’s audience just a few names of mutual friends who’ve Liked it instead of the total number. The idea is to prevent users from destructively comparing themselves to others and potentially feeing inadequate if their posts don’t get as many Likes. It could also stop users from deleting posts they think aren’t getting enough Likes or not sharing in the first place. © Provided by Oath Inc.
