World Train Center?
Jack: Mom, what's this medal you have hanging here?
me: That's just an ornament that shows the World Trade Center. It's a building that was in New York City. Mommy and Daddy had our wedding at the very top.
Jack: The World Train Center??
me: Trade. With a D.
Jack: What's trade?
me: Like when you give stuff to someone else and they give you something in exchange for it. But it's between countries...
Jack: So like we give them cars and they give us money?
me: Hm. Not bad.
Jack: Why was it in New York City? Where is it now.
me: It's gone. Some bad guys made the buildings fall down.
Jack: How did they do that?
me: They flew a big plane into it and the hole in the building made it fall down.
Jack: Did the bad guys get hurt?
Jack: Well that's good then. They shouldn't do that.
me: I know.
