While WHS excellently hosted a play “With Their Eyes” and a summer reading theme to commemorate 9/11’s 10th year anniversary, the tragic terrorist attack was forgotten this year as no moment of silence or announcement sketch was made to honor our brave heroes and tragic citizens who died.
Last year marked the 10th anniversary of the event, making it hard to turn on the news channels without special reports of the anniversary. In addition to WHS not honoring the day, other news sources such as NBC, did not as well.
While ABC, CBS, MSNBC and other news channels aired the moment of silence announced by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, NBC premiered an interview with Kris Jenner, from “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
How Jenner could have been deemed as more important than honoring the firefighters and police officers who rushed into the Pentagon, the citizens trying to escape the burning building and the family members waiting at home for a phone call indicating that their loved one was safe, can not be explained.
Similarly, if WHS has time to air commercials about people dancing throughout the school, we should definitely have found the time to honor those who have fallen.
Spokesman feels in the future that we should plan to take at least one minute of our day to remember those affected by the attacks.
