Guests: Ellen Saracini, Chris Brennan, Stephen Brock

With the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack approaching, host Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with two local residents with personal experiences related to the collapse of the World Trade Centers. She’ll be joined in studio by Bucks County resident ELLEN SARACINI, whose husband Victor was the captain of the one of the hijacked planes that crashed into the World Trade Center’s South Tower, and by The Philadelphia Inquirer’s CHRIS BRENNAN, who covered the events of September 11th, 2001 for The Philadelphia Daily News. And Mary will be joined by STEPHEN BROCK, a Professor and the School Psychology Program Coordinator at California State University, to discuss how schools are helping children deal with grief and tragedy, and what it’s like for children to grow-up in a post-9/11 era.
