Providence Academy Remembers 9/11
Students and staff at Providence Academy honored the memory of the men and women whose lives were lost on September 11, 2001.
On Tuesday, students placed small American flags on the front lawn to pay tribute to first responders.
Most of the students weren’t born when the attacks occurred. However, they say it’s important to remember what happened 18 years ago today.
Student Mary Dudley was only three weeks old during the attacks. She says honoring the legacy of the lives lost on 9-11 is a tradition that must continue.
“For the future generations that don’t even know of that event happening in their lives. That they are taught about it and they know the impact, influence and the great sadness of it,” said Dudley.
“The tribute is our way of educating them about our past, honoring the memory of the people whose lives were tragically taken that day and recognizing the heroism and bravery of the men and women who serve as first responders in our local community,” said school headmaster Dr. Todd R. Flanders.
The City of Plymouth Police and Fire Departments also took part in the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony and Recognition of First Responders.
