    "Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th " - President George W. Bush

    Our oldest students were little babies on September 11, 2001. Today, as young adults, they stand with the entire Yonkers Public Schools community to remember and honor victims and survivors, those who served in response to the attacks, and the resolve of our country. There are lessons, ceremonies, and discussion throughout the District.

    We honor the lives and sacrifice of the people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center in New York, Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, in Washington D.C.

    We especially remember the 24 people from Yonkers who never came home: Michael A. Boccardi, Michelle Renee Bratton, Thomas Brennan, John McConnell Cullinan, Dwight David Darcy, Christopher Duffy, Kevin Joseph Frawley, John Patrick Gallagher, Peter Gelinas, Kieran Gorman, Vanessa Langer, Denis Francis Lavelle, Michael Lepore, Yamel Merino, Kevin James Murphy, James N. Pappageorge, Valsa Raju, Luis C. Revilla-Mier, Samuel R. Salvo Jr., Marian Halevy Serva, Sean Patrick Tallon, Joanna Vidal, Timothy Matthew Welty, William Joseph Wik
