Local Young People Remember 9-11

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - "Thank you for serving our country, I feel very safe with you out there," read a fifth grader at D.C.'s Murch Elementary where children are writing letters to soldiers, marines, and first responders, thanking them for their service on September 11, 2001.

"That day was a horrible day, lots of lives were lost," wrote another.

Student Government President and fifth grader Justin Atwood said, "We were too young to comprehend what was happening. I myself was only one. We didn't realize the effort that they made. They risked their lives for your country, and that's a good thing. We want to tell them so."

Each letter will be distributed by the non profit D. C. Cares. At Virginia's Langley High School, students made a vivid display with 2,977 flags.
