Greensboro, NC -- It is a day our nation will never forget. The images will never fade away.
On Tuesday, students who were barely old enough for elementary school put together their plans to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of September 11th.
"We were very young at the time but we still remember and it still had an impact on us," said Grimsley High School student Kassra Homaifar.
"Honestly at first, I don't think i really could comprehend what was going on," said Southeast High School Student Carl Jenkins.
"I was in first grade then and I remember the teacher turned on the TV and everyone was, no one really knew the impact then because of our age," Homaifar said.
"We really need to get past it as a country. We need to talk about it and look at it in a positive light," said Jenkins.
For these students, September 11th is a history lesson and a chance to change their community. They're part of the National Conference for Community and Justice's summer leadership program.
On Tuesday, they discussed ways to remember September 11th in their schools. Their goal is to remember the victims, but look forward to a community without bias, bigotry and racism.
Ideas include a pledge poster and a tree of rebirth where students would write their memories.
