Children who witness war and conflict grow up far too quickly, and often with debilitating side effects. SEPTEMBER'S CHILDREN, narrated by award-winning CNN anchor Judy Woodruff, focuses on the effect of war and terrorism on children. More importantly, it offers valuable insights into alleviating their emotional trauma. The program brings to life the searing events of September 11th through the eyes of students at Public School 234 in New York City, the elementary school closest to Ground Zero on 9/11. The production also travels to war zones including Afghanistan, Israel and Gaza, where teachers, parents and mental health workers are using innovative techniques to treat the emotional havoc war and violence inflict on children.
