The Day the Towers Fell: The Story of September 11, 2001
Maureen Crethan Santora began working in the New York City Public School System in 1967. She was an early childhood teacher for over 25 years. She took time off to raise her four children. Christopher, her only son, who entered the Fire Academy to become a fire fighter in January 2001 died a hero on September 11, 2001. She wrote this book to help young students understand this terrible event. She wanted children to know what hatred does. Maureen retired as a staff developer from PS 2, Queens in July 2001. Part of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the Christopher A Santora Educational Scholarship Fund. The fund provides scholarships and educational materials to schools.

Through her work as a licensed physical therapist and a certified practitioner of the gentle, functional Feldenkrais method, author
wanted to use this story to encourage physical activity to the many children who spend too much time: sitting. They start out reluctantly
strapped to car-seats, highchairs and strollers, later they sit in front of the TV, PC or with bent necks texting on their cell phones.
Through movement children learn about themselves and their world and develop the strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, posture
and healthy body weight needed to be able to reach goals and fulfil dreams.
Portions The world that waits for me at the top of the stairs is one of supreme quiet, and invitation_To a pensive time
of varying mood, Strange and fanciful thought, And ideas that burst like bright, Exciting colors, over the furniture and
appointments, These alongside shadows, deep and grey_This is the world of my most real self, One of which I yearn,
in paradoxical stances: To escape, and to return-For knowing one’s self must be done in portions, Else the whole of
it would crumble, In the terrible and marvelous scrutiny, As a castle, Fashioned, Of humble sand.To be intimate with
one’s self is a brave and worthy task, Superseding that with any other.
