      While the disaster in New York City has been an opportunity to pull together as a nation, and as a world, it also provides an opportunity to fight prejudice that arises from such a crisis. Schools and families can assure children and teens that while the assailants may have come from a single region of the world, children and families of Arabian descent or Muslim heritage in the USA are also in grief over the incident--but could be targets of misplaced anger. Teachers and parents can help to prevent the expression of misplaced anger toward innocent children and families in the USA. 9-01
