Even though it has been 18 years, we still never forget that day. Even though it seems like yesterday, I was in Mr. Clark's 6th grade reading class when our school received the news that the towers had been attacked. We spent the rest of the day in school watching the news, we never opened another book, took another test, or talked about our school work in any way until the morning of the 12th. Like I said, it feels like it was just yesterday. I still picture it in my mind, where I was sitting in class and the look on my teacher's face when he hung up his office phone.

Of course, our students today were too little or weren't even born yet when disaster struck. This morning before classes started, took a moment of silence to remember the men and women who lost their lives, along with those who responded and helped the recovery process. Make sure to tell your kids about that day when they are old enough to understand what happened. Keep the memory of all those people alive.
