I haven't talk to them about it because we're still explaining 9/11 to them when they ask. I think upper middle to high school would be the time to talk to them unless you live near there.
If they saw something and asked me about it I would tell them that a group of people are trying to build a beautiful facility and Mosque but the location has upset some people because it reminds a lot of people of a tragic event that happened very close to where they are building. If it were me I'd want to build my building where people weren't so emotionally connected to a sad day and where my Mosque and community center wouldn't add to terrible memories.

Well first I would tell him that the Mosque is NOT being built on ground zero but 2 blocks away. Then I would tell him that the great thing about our country is that 1st amendment protects their right to build there. I would also tell him that just b/c some people want to circumvent the constitution when they see fit.....well we just do not do that. We also do not make laws based on someone's comfort level or morals. I have told him all this!
