9/11

On September 11, 2001, more than 3000 people died because of an attack on the World Trade Center towers. Fourteen years later, many people still remember where they were on that morning, and still memorialize everyone who died. Kohala High School started its morning bulletin asking everyone to stand, while Kuha’o Case played the National Anthem on the piano. Kohala High School also asked everyone to wear red on September 11th to symbolize the patriotic colors of the American Flag and the horrible attack to America.
Fourteen years ago, planes piloted by the global terrorist group Al-Qaeda, smashed into the two towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. Around 3000 people were killed that morning. This week Thursday, many people attended a special ceremony at the two pools in New York. A list of names was read of everyone who died, and four different moments of silence at exactly the moment of when the two towers fell, and one each for the pentagon attack and the plane crash. This year was also the first year that had the National September 11 Memorial Museum open to the general public.
