ELKHART — For two years now, there have been adults who were born after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and many who were children then can’t remember how they experienced that day.

So for a new generation, teachers are the ones providing much of the knowledge about 9/11.

I'm glad the school system does this every year. There is a police and fire memorial on the river walk honoring those firefighters and police that serve and those that gave their all! BUT! The present City administration and their appointments could not and did not honor the 20 year anniversary of the 9/11/2001 murder of nearly 3000 innocent people. The fire department shift held a moment of silence. The City gave no recognition. To go along with this lack of respect for fire and police , the city allowed a vandalized firefighter statute to go unrepaired for months and still has not been returned to the memorial. Also the last firefighter to lose his life to on duty injury has not had his name added to the memorial. It has been well over a year since this young man passed. Priorities.....
