14 yr old Brook Peters- decided at age 11 to shoot a documentary about the school/kids and educators affected by 9/11-that has now (finished this past Spring 3 yrs later) gone into the education system recently premiering at The Tribeca Film Festival Family Day and on PBS in NY and NJ & in Israel on Prime time. The Second Day Film - He has learned not only from the interviews (in part also with his own healing) that there is a strength and resilience in all people, no matter what they have gone through. He since has launched a Show Your Strength Campaign and is reaching out to youth to know they can overcome and have support no matter what their challenges have been. He maybe 14- but he is my hero!!!
