Hereford remembers 9/11
On this day we recognize the tragedy that struck New York City 14 years ago.
Hereford acknowledges the fall of the twin towers by playing a video at the time that the first tower fell. We also took a moment of silence as a sign of respect for the ones who passed away.
Spanish teacher, Angela Anshel had moved to Miami two months before the attack. She said at that time she was on her way to an interview for a job but she didn’t speak much English at the time. “The first thing I did was I turned on the T.V, it was the most catastrophic thing I had ever seen in my entire life,” she said.
Anshel spoke about how scary it was for her to see this happening in her new home while she is away from her family. “I thought that I was watching a movie, it was so surreal,” Anshel said.
The students felt that the moment of silence was respectful and informative. “Some people don’t like know exactly what happened which is surprising,” Cory Bower (’16) said.
September 11, 2001 will always be remembered and respected here.
