AHS Library Remembers 9/11
We shall never forget We shall keep this day,
We shall keep the events and the tears
In our minds, our memory and our hearts
and take them with us as we carry on
The Auburn High School Library will observe the 10th Anniversary of September 11th during the month of September with an interactive display. Students, teachers, administrators, and community members are encouraged to share any of the following through the interactive display:
What do you remember from that day?
How has 9/11 affected you or your family?
Do you plan to do anything special to observe the 10th anniversary of 9/11? If so, what?
What can you do to bring peace into the world today?
Responses will be shared in this blog at the end of the month.
Our student created daily news program. Tiger TV, featured our interactive display in their special 9/11 Remembered episode (starting at the 6:00 mark). I would recommend watching this special episode starting from the 3:10 mark so you don't miss a great interview with our very own Lt. Col. Segars helped lead the 3rd Infantry Division as they invaded Baghdad.(http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/iraq/2003-03-30-najaf_x.htm)
Lt. Col. Segars' accounting of what he remembers from September 11, 2001 is unique and we are proud to have him as a member of our Auburn High School family.
