On September 11, 2001 the United States and the World witnessed a tragedy. Terrorism caused nearly 3,000 people to lose their lives. Each person died a hero.
In an effort to never forget the victims of 9-11, I constructed a memorial wall in my high school two years ago. After receiving approval from my principal, I asked a school club, Kansas Association for Youth, to assist me in creating the wall. The project took four months to plan, buy materials, create, and make. The wall contains 2,996 stars. Each star represents one victim from the hijacked planes, Pentagon, and World Trade Centers. A name of every victim was handwritten on each star to personalize the memorial. The wall is located inside the high school though the front entrance and is open to the public for visitation.
