|Eastlake High School students were not yet born when terrorists brought down the World Trade Center in New York City, attacked the Pentagon, and brought down United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. But their lives — and the lives of every American — were changed forever.|
Having a sense of history sometimes lost on young Americans, there was a student-led movement to honor those lost during the worst terrorist attack in history. Students would show their pride by wearing red, white, and blue clothing.
But the themed event was canceled by Eastlake staff at the last minute. Students learned of the decision Friday morning during announcements.
“At this point, I was fairly upset and confused as to why the theme was changed so I went around asking students in our leadership,” one student told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. “They had explained that red, white, and blue was going to be seen as racially insensitive and may affect people in a way that we will not understand and for that reason that we were to change our theme.”
Family members of the murdered children were on the news. They said the US had not even apologized.Remember that drone strike against ISIS? The military now admits, it is unlikely any ISIS were killed. It was most likely all civilians and several were probably children. Seven were children.
