THINK Together students and staff walk in remembrance of those who lost their lives eleven years ago on Sept. 11
On the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, THINK Together middle school students and staff from Burke Middle in Pico Rivera walked to their local fire station to hand deliver thank you letters. The students started writing their letters last week and were anxious to have the opportunity to deliver the letters themselves.
The unfortunate events that occured on Sept. 11 forever changed our country.
“Students today were too young to remember what happened. Its important to teach them what it means for a country so diverse to come together and rise above such tragedy!” said Diana Alsup, middle school site coordinator at Richard L. Graves.
The way Americans travel drastically changed and the comforts of safety and freedom also became major areas of concern. Alsup also had this to say: “I will never forget the feelings that ran through me eleven years ago today. The amount of fear and sadness these heartless acts brought to an entire nation will never be forgotten.”
Diana is passionate about teaching her students about the importance of remembrance, which is indeed a priceless value for middle school students to learn.
THINK Together students and staff have been leading heartfelt events throughout this week to educate their students on the importance of remembering Sept. 11.
