"Following last week's historic events and as New York prepares for the tenth anniversary of September 11th, State Senator Daniel Squadron presented Lower Manhattan teen Brook Peters with a Senate resolution honoring the selection of his 9/11 documentary for screening at the Tribeca Film Festival.  Brook's documentary, titled 'The Second Day,' explores how Lower Manhattan children have processed the trauma of the attacks and recovered alongside the community.  Brook was in his second day of kindergarten on 9/11/2001. Senator Squadron's resolution honoring Brook Peters passed the State Senate unanimously on Wednesday. Senator Squadron presented the resolution to Brook on Friday in Zuccotti Park, accompanied by Brook's mother Michelle Peters and firefighters from FDNY Engine Company 10 and FDNY Ladder Company 10. Michelle volunteers for the FDNY."
