Remembering September 11th, 2001

Remembering September 11th, 2001

 

There’s always going to be these moments in our lives that we distinctly remember: A first date, a school dance, a passing of a friend or loved one.  September 11th, 2001 is one of those days.  This Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City, Washington DC and Pennsylvania.

 

Thinking about this time in our nation’s history: it’s crazy to think none of our students here at NCS Digital have any memories of this event happening.  Yes, they have heard many of their teachers talk about this tragic day in US History; however, they were not alive when it happened.  It’s a memory burned in the minds of many older generations; we can recall exactly where we were when we first learned about the attacks on the United States.  For me, I was in 9th grade English class (4th period) at Utica High School.  Where were you when you first learned about it?

 

In remembrance of September 11th, I encourage each and every one of you to take a moment and reflect on this time in history.  Share stories with others; reflect on how life here in the United States has changed because of this event.
