These kids weren't even born yet when 9/11 happened so what they created is amazing!

When I saw this article on, I immediately got the chills because I remember exactly where I was when the United States was attacked. Knowing that sixth and seventh graders who were not even born when the Towers came down makes this story so amazing!

The concept for the memorial got its start three years ago when the Griswold Elementary School children who were part of an enrichment program were in fourth grade.

Fast forward three years later and the same students who are now in Griswold Middle School designed the memorial and also worked with the school board and town and were able to raise $20,000 to pay for it all.
