  • Today, as you know, is the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attack on our country. Although none of you were born yet, the adults in the building can probably tell you exactly where they were and what they were doing on that day.  I was teaching a calculus class here at the high school, when a student ran in to tell me the plane had hit one of the twin towers.  We all spent the day staring at the TV in disbelief and trying to figure out what would happen to our world.  At the World Trade Center, 2,763 died after the two planes slammed into the twin towers, including 343 firefighters and paramedics, 60 police officers who were trying to save the office workers trapped on higher floors. At the Pentagon, 189 people were killed, including 64 on American Airlines Flight 77, the airliner that struck the building. On Flight 93, 44 people died when the plane crash-landed in Pennsylvania.  The world that you know today is not the same world that existed before the attacks on 9/11.  I will say that America came together in a way that I had never seen before and haven’t seen since!  We are strong people and the worst of circumstances will never defeat us.  So as we fight the current battle against this virus, just know that no matter how terrible things are, you can get through it.  There are brighter days ahead.  As we say the pledge and observe a moment of silence today, please remember the brave people who lost their lives 19 years ago and be proud to be an American.
