Triton College located at 2000 Fifth Ave in River Grove IL, will be hosting a two part 9/11 tribute September 6 at 1pm with a three thousand flag tribute for those lives who were lost in the attacks, and the second part of the event at 5p with a presentation and film located at the schools space center. The schools Bible Club is also set to do a mass prayer for the fallen and families who still face the effects of the event. The school felt that some of its students might have had an experience of loved ones or family members and give them a chance to express themselves and how they are affected today.
“My heart goes out to those who have suffered and hope that they are filling better. And to just know that God is on their side”- Jessica Ramirez (Triton College Student)
It has been ten years since the tragedy and since then America has been on high alert and also became a unified country in which we won’t let anything strike fear into their hearts. Since the attacks, there have been more then three thousand casualties within the united states services and billions of dollars spent into the war, but with that comes the success such as the capture of both Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. This gives the families some piece of mind and knowledge that justice is served.
On this tenth anniversary students will come together and show their respects to those who have fallen and for those who are serving in the military and to pray for them to have a safe trip and most importantly, a safe return home.
