The death of Osama bin Laden was the ultimate teachable moment, but it has left teachers, parents and educators scrambling to tell the story of Sept. 11 and the career of the world's most wanted terrorist to a new generation of schoolchildren — many of whom were not even born when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

On Sept. 11, 2001, Basmattie Bishundat made a promise to her son, who was killed when American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon where he worked. She promised to her son that the day Osama bin Laden was caught – dead or alive – she would open a bottle of champagne for her son Kris Romeo Bishundat.

George Washington University student James Brinton didn't celebrate the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden by dancing in the street or climbing trees outside the White House.

He had something else in mind. Unlike others from his school who waved large American flags and chanted patriotic songs in front of TV cameras, he opted for a more somber way Monday to mark the death of the world's most wanted terrorist and remember the thousands killed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Irene Golinski was not among the Americans who wildly celebrated Osama bin Laden’s death.

The 61-year-old widow of retired Army Col. Ronald Golinski — a civilian Pentagon employee killed Sept. 11, 2001, when al Qaeda hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon — said she felt “no emotions” upon learning Sunday night that U.S. troops had killed the attack’s mastermind.

For KPMG Washington National Tax Senior Administrative Assistant Myrna Gonzalez, the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon hit close to home. Her husband, Staff Sergeant Cesar Rodriguez, a Military Police officer, had been deployed to Bosnia for less than a month. Being a military spouse, and knowing many people who worked at the Pentagon, Myrna felt called to action. She has responded by helping raise money for the Pentagon Memorial Fund to honor the 59 passengers and 125 military and civilian personnel who lost their lives when American Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon that day.
