ANNOUNCEMENTS -- Friday, September 10, 2021

1. Twenty years ago tomorrow, on September 11th , 2001, at 8:46 a.m., the United
States came under attack from 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists, as they crashed a jet filled
with people into the World Trade Center North Tower in New York City.  At 9:03,
a second jet struck the South Tower, and at 9:37 the Pentagon in Washington
DC was hit by a third plane.  At 9:59 a.m. the South Tower collapsed and 8
minutes later Flight 93 crashed in a field in Pennsylvania as passengers
attempted to stop the terrorists who were headed for the White House or the
Capitol.  At 10:28, the North Tower collapsed.  2996 people died that morning in
that 2-hour time span, including Mariemont High School alumnus Doug Cherry,
Class of 1981. The world as we once knew it changed forever.
Those of you who are students were not even born when all of this happened,
but most of your teachers remember it vividly. It was the first time most of us did
not feel safe in our own country and had no idea what would happen next.  Brave
men and women gave their lives in the attempt to save others and it took many
months to clear the debris. As we observe our moment of silence today, please
take the time to remember the events of 9/11.  Twenty years later there are still
thousands of families affected by this tragedy. Please join me in a moment of
silence at this time…thank you.
