9/11 Ceremony at Topeka High School

White balloons honoring the victims of the September 11 attack on the United States were released into the air above Topeka High School today. The balloon release was part of a ceremony conducted by the Topeka High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC Cadets. Cadets read the timeline of the events that occured on that date nine years ago. They also celebrated how citizens of this country came together to show this nation's resolve after the attacks. The ceremony ended with the playing of taps as the U.S. flag flew high above Constitution Plaza on the east side of the school.
