Sacred Heart students remember 9/11 and honor local heroes
Sacred Heart Catholic School
On Wednesday, participants in Sacred Heart Catholic School’s morning assembly remembered 9/11 and the lives that were lost.
They also remembered the community heroes who stepped up that day to help those in need and those who sacrificed themselves for others — firefighters, police officers, first responders, doctors and nurses — for many weeks after the terrible 9/11 events.
Students and staff members discussed the fact that not all heroes wear a cape and have superpowers. Community heroes every day love us and sacrifice to take care of us. Students learned that you don’t have to have a special cape or even a badge to be a good neighbor and to help others.
Capt. David Morris of the Salisbury Fire Department, Officer Michael Dishman of the Salisbury Police Department, Dr. Danny Holland of Rowan Regional Medical Center, and nurse Julie Caldwell of Kiser Hospice House were recognized as community heroes.
