& # 39; We owe it to those we have lost and to the countless heroes who ran into danger that day and the days that followed to do everything we can to keep their memory alive. & # 39;
The law directly affects children and teenagers in New York at the public school in the hope that future generations will understand the September 11 attacks.
Every September 11, the students are expected to hold a brief moment of silence at the start of the day.
& # 39; We will help ensure that we never forget – not only the pain of that moment, but also the courage, sacrifice, and outpouring of love that our response has determined.
Cuomo hopes the law will encourage classroom dialogue and education and ensure that future generations understand the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and their place in history.
Governor Cuomo announced the new law on Twitter, two days before the 18th anniversary of 9/11
The law was supported by Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. and assembly member Stacey Phefer Amato.
Both believe that this law will weigh the importance of September 11 on young children.
Addabbo Jr. said: “I hope this new law will mean that the meaning of the tragic events of September 11, whether it is the loss of loved ones or the greatest rescue operation our nation has ever experienced, will forever be. are recognized by students too young to witness this life-changing day. & # 39;
& # 39; By imposing a brief moment of silent reflection every year, we can help future generations better understand this day and its meaning in our history & # 39 ;, said Amato.

This law comes on the heels of 9/11 first aid workers who encourage Governor Cuomo to sign a pension account with non-uniformed care workers in the World Trade Center Disability.
State Senate sponsor Jim Gaughran told the New York Post: & # 39; We have a moral obligation to do this. They all caught the same toxic air and touched the same toxic things. & # 39;
This year is the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.
