Thank you for covering the Valley Christian 9/11 memorial, many Pleasanton residents attend Valley Christian Schools. I had the pleasure of participating in this student lead event, and was so impressed to see that it was the students who suggested, planned, promoted, and lead an appropriate remembrance of a tragic day in the history of the United States.

Thank you for recognizing the effort of the students at Valley Christian High School to remember the victims of the 911 tragedy. As a teacher at the school, I have been very impressed by the determination of our youth to remember the significance of the terrorist attack, and to honor the military personnel who serve our country to protect our freedom.
