"We, as people of the world, must learn to respect, understand, and promise one another's safety."


- Kristen

Kristin's father was attending a conference in Kansas City on September 11, 2001. She wrote the following report at home to share with her father in an attempt to understand what happened on this tragic day.

September 11, 2001 will be remembered from this day forward because plane drivers were forced to crash into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, after they were hijacked. Everybody was running as fast as they could.

Mrs. Sharp, principal of Lake Hills Elementary School, had one son in New York and another in Washington, D.C. Both were near the accidents. Both of them called to tell her they were fine.

People near the accident were told to leave their building. People from other countries can't fly to those places. You can't drive to many places either. Thousands may have been killed because of this tragedy.

Why would anyone do such a horrendous act of destruction? There are no really good answers. We as people of the world, must learn to respect, understand, and promise one another's safety. When one is hurt, we all suffer.




Throughout our school district, the students are bringing their extra coins to school to help with the relief effort in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Bruce, C.J., Hanna, Stephanie, Nicole, Jorie, Kristen, and Rylee are excited about their contributions to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

The Lake Hills PTA board and parents also decided that a portion of our fundraiser profits will be donated to the disaster relief effort.

We take pride in being Americans and want to work together to help each other and make our great country a safe place to live and work. Can you help us?
