This child-friendly song, composed by Hank Fellows, "America's Songwriter," tells the true story of "Sirius," the police patrol dog who died in the Twin Towers on 9-11-01. This song is most effectively used in conjunction with Hank Fellows' children's book "Sirius, The Hero Dog of 9/11," which is also available on Hank Fellows' Share My Lesson page. That page includes Lesson Plans for the teaching of the book, for grades 3-5, 4-6, and 6-8. With or without the reading of this children's book, this song will give children a complete idea of the facts and themes surrounding the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11/01. For another song about September 11th, which has been performed across America, please see Hank's song "Halfway to Heaven," also available on Hank's Share My Lesson page. This song is ideal for September 11, 2001, also known as Patriot Day. On September 10, 2006, Hank received a Citation from the New York City Council for his "continuing generosity and devotion to the remembrance of September 11th." A copy of this Citation is attached below.
