Sikeston family creates drawing to remember 9/11


SIKESTON - Kahielynn Clair Pobst happily joined her brothers as they touched up their 9/11 tribute in chalk in front of their home Monday afternoon.

The 4-year-old was enthusiastic but she wasn't quite sure what the drawing was all about. That was OK with her parents, Tonya and Glenn Pobst.

Mrs. Pobst explained the family watched a movie on television about the 9/11 tragedy Sunday.

"I think it is important for this generation to know why we commemorate 9/11," said Mrs. Pobst. She explained just like it was the generations which came before that instilled the importance of World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam, it will be her generation that must explain to the children what happened in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

"I think it is an important thing for them to know," she continued. "I don't expect them to understand everything, but they will understand what their minds can grasp."
