On September 11, 2001, a tragic event happened that changed our nation and nation’s people. A lot of people died that day-firefighters, policemen, parents, grandparents. There were people that died saving other people- heros. A lot of memorials have been put up to honor the people that died that day, and one is in my school.Every September 11th, my school (Fitzsimmons Middle School) takes a quarter of the day off to go and hike on Inspiration Trail. Inspiration Trail is a trail that my school built to commemorate all of those brave people that were lost on that tragic day. For a week, the people that were in my middle school in 2001, took pickaxes and shovels and set to work to build the beautiful trail that goes up on a mountain. After they smoothed the trail out, these people went down to the river that runs by my school and got a stone for every person that died that day. They then put the rocks on the border of the trail, making the beautiful trail even more beautiful.When we go out on the trail, we talk about how good it is to be alive and take a few moments in silence for the heros of 9/11. After that, we admire the nature that we are blessed to have surrounding our school and our town of Bailey.So on September 11th, go to a quiet place, by yourself or with your family, and just think about how good it is to be alive and how beautiful life is. Think about those who lost their lives in 9/11 saving other people. Life is beautiful, so try to live yours to the fullest!!
