Erie Students Honor First Responders Ahead of 9/11
Students at a Erie grade school put together a tribute to honor first responders.
Students at St. Luke School hosted its patriots and first responders celebration Tuesday morning.
It included songs, gifts for the honorees and a video they put together to honor and say thank you the men and women who put their lives on the line every day.
Several Erie police, firefighters, EMTs, troopers and military members all showed up.
"Our kids were not alive when 9/11 happened," said Sue Amendola, second grade teacher. "We do address it in classes, but I think it's important that they know if they see a policeman or fireman on the street or a military person on the street to say thank you because they put of their time and effort and family life into protecting us."
St. Luke's School 9/11 Club was created four years ago and has put on this celebration to honor the armed forces and first responders for several years.
