As most of you already know, 8 years ago today, we experienced the shock of 9-11.
Today the base schools held a freedom walk for all the kids beginning at the time the first plane hit the World Trade Center.
All the children were encouraged to dress patriotically for the special day.
The bells rang at 5 different times of the morning to signify each major event that occurred that morning 8 years ago.
8:46 - Flight 11 hits the World Trade Center
9:03 - Flight 175 hits the World Trade Center
9:45 - Flight 77 hits the Pentagon
10:05 - Flight 93 crashes in Pennsylvania
10:28 - The World Trade Center collapses.
I'm so thankful that my children are able to know the importance of our military and all they do for this country.
I have so much respect for those who serve our country.
For those families who sacrifice...sometimes EVERYTHING.
Let us remember those who keep going 8 years after they lost their loved ones on this tragic day in history.
Here's what the parade looked like! Super colorful. Some parents walked with their kids as well!
Miah was the big man on campus in his super cool flight suit and big time Colonel insignia that Jake let him borrow. Kora didn't have anything military so she wore red white and blue.
