We couldn't have said it better. Well done . Last week at Downtown Campus, Pima employees placed a miniature U.S. flag for each of the 2,977 people killed by the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Today is Memorial Day. Schools mark what is important by the time they allocate to those studies and endeavors. Throughout each school year, University School honors the sacrifices of American service members that are marked on Memorial Day.

The overwhelming majority of Americans have no direct insight into the US military and are thus unable to make informed decisions as citizens about our armed forces and veterans. Young people learn best by seeing and doing, and developing experienced, empathetic, and active citizens and leaders means that students should explore current military bases and significant historic / memorial sites so they can learn about the people and lives lost in service to our country, interact with current and retired armed forces members, let them know they care, and discover for themselves. These are critical learning experiences for all of our students, and all young people should take part in opportunities like these. In the past 4 years, University School students have been to the USS Ralph Johnson - DDG 114, (a native son of Charleston who gave his life to his comrades in Vietnam and was honored with
a posthumous Medal of Honor), National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, National Naval Aviation Museum, NAS Pensacola, USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park, Joint Base Charleston, Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park, USS Charleston LCS 18, and Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site. Small groups of students attend the annual ceremonies marking the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum. All students experienced a graduation and tour of Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., and a graduation and tour of Fort Jackson. We also took one of the last tours of the Save The USS Clamagore (SS-343) with a former member of her crew and hosted the The Official Parris Island Marine Band Brass Quintet for a public performance. The pandemic led to the cancellation of our tours of U.S. Coast Guard Base Charleston, the MV Cape Decision RO/RO ship, and Colonial National Historical Park - Yorktown, VA.

We've also visited Arlington National Cemetery, National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial, several other D.C. area memorials, and the Flight 93 National Memorial.
Tomorrow our country will pause to remember, reflect and pay respect. In the wake of 9/11 the darkness seemed impenetrable but we kept on moving forward, one step at a time. Initially our country was awash in sadness, anger and confusion. As time went on we struggled, sacrificed, learned and healed while remaining committed to remembrance. #343 National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial

A view of the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial from our visit in 2017.
Never forget.

Our youth leaders were able to visit the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial while visiting Washington, D.C. What a testament to the lives lost. Beautiful. Unforgettable. Heartbreaking.
Today we remember a terrible event in American history. in 2001, four commercial airliners were used to carry out su***de terrorist attacks against U. S. targets. Two planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane crashed into the Pentagon outside of Washington, DC, and a fourth went down in a field outside of Shanksville, PA after passengers charged the cockpit. These acts shocked a world in which few could imagine something like this happening. Nothing was the same after that.

Such was the case at Ford’s Theatre the night of April 14, 1865, when, for the first time in history, a U.S. president was assassinated. The country not only mourned the loss of its great leader, it also lamented the end of a peace that had just been won in a brutal, four-year Civil War. When President Abraham Lincoln died the next morning, the country also grieved an innocence that was gone forever. Nothing was the same after that.

The country was scarred by these national tragedies. These events serve as significant markers along the continuing timeline of history and are seared into the memory of those who lived through them.

Do you remember where you were when you first realized that the United States was being attacked on September 11, 2001?

The boot spur of the murderer was reported to have caught in the flag on the right-front of the box as he jumped onto the stage after firing the fatal shot; National September 9/11 Memorial & Museum, aerial view of the grounds of the World Trade Center Memorial site, the two footprints of the Twin Towers now serve as fountains amidst a grove of trees.

On 9/11/2001 the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia committed an act of war against the United States. Rather than respond as we did following a less ambitious decapitation strike at Pearl Harbor, our leaders and the media have actually conspired with the Kingdom to whitewash their responsibility for 9/11. Whether they are traitors or useful idiots is for the people and history to judge.

Saudi Arabia is the primary financier of the effort to subvert the nation through their Islamist ideology. It is estimated that at least 80% of US mosques were established with and still receiver significant funding from Saudi agents. Saudi Arabia is also conducting psychological operations through schools ranging from middle school to prestigious universities which demonize western democracies, blaming them for the ills of the Islamic world and advancing Islamic arguments and rituals.

Saudi Arabia has hired armies of attorneys and lobbyists that shamefully fight the legitimate claims of the 9/11 families. They have dragged us into a genocidal war in Yemen and are attempting to spark one with Iran. They are also arming to the teeth and even getting nuclear technological assistance that could potentially result in the development of a nuclear weapon in the hands of a nation that committed 9/11. We must stop them.

Receiving a medal after crossing the finish line of a race (or a finisher coin, like at the Army Ten Miler) is a reminder and mark of many hard miles run for each participant. Someone left their coin on Major Milam's memorial unit this past Sunday after the race. It was a very touching sight to see.

Thank you to all those who ran to remember.

The Army Ten Miler had thousands of runners passing by the Pentagon Memorial post-race. Thank you to all who visited - we hope you had a great race! It was certainly a beautiful day for a run.
