Remembering on Patriot Day

12 Sep

The students in my 4th grade class were 2 years old on September 11, 2001.  They will never remember our country as it was before 9/11.  We read a piece about 9/11 and watched a short movie about it.  As I read to them about the passengers who overcame the terrorists and crashed the plane in Pennsylvania, I became choked up.  My 4th graders looked on in concern as their teacher’s voice filled with emotion.  Their memories of this day may be the emotion I showed as I talked about it.

They were touched. I felt like I taught them something that matters.

Not a bad day on the job.
