HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Most of us have memories of September 11, 2001. Friday students at Radford High School came together for a ceremony to reflect. The somber ceremony was to honor those who fell during the 9-11 attacks.
As bells rang out, students marched to put leis on the base of the flag pole. Sunrise's Steve Uyehara talked to students about what they remembered from that day and what the ceremony meant to them.
"My parents were really scared. My dad, he had to ride the bus to work every day for a couple of weeks. We didn't have school for three days. It was really hard, and it was really scary for us, especially being overseas" said Kelsey, a student at Radford High School.
"I remember in the morning I saw it on the news and it was really tragic. My mom came downstairs. My dad was watching the news and my mom thought he was watching a movie and then she realized it was real life" said Kayla.
Kayla says she thinks the ceremony is really patriotic because it honors people who help keep our nation safe, especially those who gave their lives on September 11. Flags on campus were lowered to half mast to honor the fallen.
