  • 9/11 Remembrance:  Eighteen years ago on September 11, 2001, at 8:46 am Eastern time, United States of America came under attack from 19 Al-Queda Terrorists, as they crashed a jet filled with people into World Trade Center North Tower  in New York City.  At 9:03, a second jet struck the South Tower and at 9:37 the Pentagon was hit by a third plane.  At 9:59 the South Tower collapsed  and 8 minutes later Flight 93 crashed in a field in Pennsylvania as passengers attempted to stop the terrorists who were headed for the White House or the Capital.  At 10:28 the North Tower collapsed.  2996 people died that morning and in that 2 hour time span, the world as we once knew it, changed forever.  Most of you were not even born when all of this happened, but your teachers remember it vividly.  It was the first time most of us did not feel safe in our own country and had no idea what would happen next.  Brave men and women gave their lives to try to save others and it took months to clear the debris.  If you ever have the chance to visit New York City, take the time to visit the 9/11 memorial and museum.  It is a life changing experience.  As we observe our moment of silence today, please take the time to remember the events of 9/11.  Eighteen years later there are still thousands of families affected by the tragedy.  And even though you don’t probably realize it, your lives changed that day, before you were even born.  A moment of silence please.
