It’s been 16 years since that tragic day in September when the world watched in horror as terrorists carried out a fateful attack on American soil.

As students, we are too young to remember the fear, dread, and sadness that spread across our nation that day; nevertheless, we cannot ignore the impact it has had on our generation as well as the undoubtable impact on future generations.

As we come upon another anniversary of the tragedy, we as students must find ways to remember those who died so that their memories will live on.

The RHS Student Council has created way to do just that.

They have created a paper chain, containing 2,996 links–each one representing a citizen or first responder who perished in the September 11 attacks. This chain hangs in the school’s main entryway as a means to honor those who lost their lives in these attacks. 

Though many of us were not yet born and others were mere infants, it is our generation’s responsibility to make certain these victims are never forgotten.  Though we may be just a small corner of the world, Rockwall students are respectfully doing their part to make sure that we will always remember.
