9/11 Remembered

We’re Still Standing

~ Hannah Schoechert, 7th grade student

Those twin towers Standing tall with pride,

Fell with grieving hearts.

Stunned, America cried.

But we’re still standing.

Bin Laden tried

To crush our land,

But we stood our ground

With our flag in hand.

And we’re still standing.

Red for valor

And the blood that fell.

White for purity

Our heroes tell.

Blue for the justice

That will be done,

Proving once more

These colors don’t run.

And we’re still standing.

Many still remember what they were doing on September 11, 2001.

“I was in 4th grade when the 9/11 happened. No adults would explain anything except the fact that America was attacked and they might have been invaded until I got home and my mom and dad explained it to me,” said Jacob Shires a junior in political science pre-law.

It is something that is not forgotten easily, and we remember all those that lost thier lives. Where were you that day?
