9/11 Ceremony at Markham Elementary, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Markham Elementary has always done a very special 9/11 ceremony to honor those lives lost on that tragic day 8 years ago. This was the first year I was able to make it and I am so glad I did. If I’d realized how touching the ceremony would be I would have brought a better camera but a better camera would not have been able to capture the beauty of those children’s voices floating on the cool morning air as they sang the Star Spangle Banner and America the Beautiful. Children are so full of hope and gentle strength – there is more that we can learn from them then we allow them teach us.
