September 11th is a day that most people can remember exactly what they were doing when the first plane struck the north tower of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.

Many, including Oswego County BOCES District Superintendent Christopher Todd, call it a “day that forever changed my life.”

Students in the Public Safety and Justice morning and afternoon programs at OCB held remembrance ceremonies to mark the date and to pay tribute to those first responders, who ran toward the danger rather than away from it.

Students and staff members from OCB were silent as they watched the Public Safety students and color guard raise the flag and then lower it to half-staff.

Guest New York State Trooper Elizabeth Fallon sang the National Anthem before Todd spoke about that eventful day back in 2001.

He called on those gathered to respect and recognize the sense of duty that those men and women possess who did not hesitate to go into the danger zone to help others saying, “Thank those who volunteer, thank your family and support systems and never forget what happened on 9/11.”
