So how do you explain it to children?</p><p>That’s the question the new Flight 93 National Memorial Junior Rangers Program hopes to address, using two years of research into how children deal with traumatic events.</p><p>On Saturday, the program and a specially-designed children’s activity booklet for visitors ages six to twelve will be unveiled during “Junior Ranger Day.” The day will also feature a Children’s Discovery Table where kids can make their own tributes.</p> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 12:29:25 +0000 Kaye Burnet 31624 at http://wesa.fm National Park Service Helping to Improve Emerald View Park http://wesa.fm/post/national-park-service-helping-improve-emerald-view-park <p>The woodland areas of <a href="http://mwcdc.org/projects-programs/emerald-view-park/">Emerald View Park</a> in Mt.
