LN Visits 9/11 Hastings Museum
On September 10, the students at the Lawrence/Nelson Jr. Sr. High traveled to Hastings, NE to remember the events that took place on September 11, 2001. After arriving at the Hastings Museum, the students were led into the theater to watch to different videos. The first video was a tour of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. We saw a fire truck that had been crushed when the tower fell down on top of it, an elevator motor, a piece of the antenna from the top of the north tower, stairs that the survivors had used to escape the building before it collapsed, and much more. The second video that we watched showed several different stories from people who were directly impacted by the attacks. We heard different perspectives from firefighters, police officers, people who lost a parent or loved one that day, as well as a student who was with George W. Bush the moment he was informed about the attacks. After watching the videos, the students were led to a room where there were several newspaper articles, stories, and pictures from the attacks. It was a very informational and meaningful day as everyone reflected on one of the most important and memorable moments in the history of the United States.
