NEW YORK (AP) - For Lower Manhattan resident Lauren Eskelin, the World Trade Center anniversary provides a teaching moment.

The television producer took her 7-year-old daughter, Eden, to Saint Paul’s Chapel on Thursday to experience the anniversary.

Eden wasn’t alive yet when the trade center was attacked. The family moved into the neighborhood afterward.

But she’s read books about 9/11 and says it “seems very sad.”

Eden agrees with her mom that it’s important to learn from history.

Still, Eskelin realizes it’s a scary subject for kids.

She stresses the positive - including the “new life” in their neighborhood.

Eden was heading to school after the chapel visit, and planned to share the experience with her classmates.
