Today on CNN Student News the following words were spoken:
Flowers were laid, prayers were said, and tributes were made
across the country yesterday to the 2,749 people killed in the September 11th
terrorist attacks. Most of the victims died when two planes crashed into the
towers of the world trade center and they collapsed four years ago; Others were
killed in the attack on the Pentagon or died aboard a jet that crashed in rural Pennsylvania.
This is the fourth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. This tragedy has been a turning point for our country. There is still great sadness.
Now our country is experiencing the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. There is so much loss and sadness. However, the spirit of the American people will prevail as we struggle to rebuild, remember and learn from these events.
If you feel moved to write a reflection please do so.
