A moment of reflection and remembrance at Creswell Middle School

For the students of Creswell Middle School it was a moment of reflection. For the staff it was a moment of remembrance.

1919657_10154592245630596_8656000633163773392_n 10520785_10154592244165596_2602491470868583297_n 10649894_10154592246785596_964213580463210593_n

Since the first anniversary of 9/11 the staff and students of Creswell Middle School have held a special ceremony. Every year, for the past thirteen years, they have gathered around the school’s flagpole for a Ceremony of Reflection and Remembrance.

There is always a little extra remembrance for the events of September 11, 2001 for a few staff, former students, and friends of CMS.

Thirteen years ago there was a trip in jeopardy. A trip that had been planned and fundraised for a year. A trip that was to take place in early October; only weeks after September 11, 2001. After the events of 9/11, the quasi-annual student trip to Washington D.C. and New York City teetered on cancelation. Were the skies safe to fly? Were more attacks going to happen? Would the iconic and historic locations in Washington D.C. and New York City be safe? The country was reeling in despair, yet holding onto hope and displaying patriotism all in one.

A feeling of resolve was in the air for the would-be tour group. The trip was a go.

IMG_7184The tour proved to be a heart felt trip of exploration and discovery. It become historic for the staff, students and families who were able to participate. The tour group were among the first tour groups to come back into the city, the City of New York.

On the return flight home, the group’s plane was diverted due to a discovery of a unattended bag in the plane’s galley. A bomb scare ever sharpened and heightened due to the events only weeks earlier. “Stay in your seats” was the order as firefighters and law enforcement entered the plane. “All clear” was the final words given before the plane could make its way again, bringing our group back. With heavy hearts and more memories then one can count, the group was back home in Creswell.

9/11: Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance

By Presidential Proclamation, September 11, 2014 is proclaimed, Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance. Read the Presidential Proclamation (Link)

By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress designated September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day,” and by Public Law 111-13 (April 21, 2009), Congress has requested the observance of September 11 as an annually recognized “National Day of Service and Remembrance.”

A Presidential Proclamation each year calls upon all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States to display the flag of the United States at half-staff on Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance in honor of the individuals who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. Americans are encouraged to participate in community service in honor of those our Nation lost, to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities to honor the innocent victims who perished as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
