Art of Remembrance

A Memorial Ceremony Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

On September 11, 2001, the United States experienced a series of terrorist attacks – the largest in the nation’s history. These events changed the country dramatically and set the stage for a world few could ever have imagined. Generations of our students will bear the weight of these catastrophic threats to a peaceful democracy. Understanding the historical significance of 9/11 is profound and relevant in order to gain a perspective on current and future global challenges.
