On this day ten years ago, the United States of America experienced a great tragedy. That tragedy took the lives of 2,977 individuals who are especially remembered and honored today, although they are remembered and honored by their families every day.
In their memory, let us stand tall and be the best students and teachers and global citizens we can be, always working toward peace and understanding on our beautiful planet. We are brothers and sisters in this global society. Let's use our learning projects, our blogging, and our use of technology to move us to become the best global society we can be.
