As I mentioned to you earlier, I was very happy to attend the flag ceremony and the placing of the Twin Towers artifact in Bear Creek Middle School. I also was impressed by the wide range of people who took time to attend the ceremony. The students were outstanding and it was obvious that they knew and understood about 9/11."
