Patriot Day 2017

September 11, 2001 is a day that will forever be remembered as one of the saddest days for the United States of America. It is the day that our country suffered from an attack that shook us to the core. As the years have moved on, we as a country take the time each year to pause and reflect on the changes that have been forced upon our daily lives. In that reflection our faith helps us to have the hope for the change that can make the world a better place.

Today our ACS community gathered as they do every morning for prayers. The eighth grade Class of 2018 gave a short presentation on the events of September 11, 2001, followed by a prayer for Patriot Day, which this day of remembrance is now called. Hopefully, as time continues to pass, the next generations will also remember what happened so many years ago. Hopefully, they will choose to overcome hate through actions of peace and kindness. God bless America!
