We Will Remember

                                                           By: Patryk S.

September 11, 2001 was not an ordinary day- it was a tragedy. On that day two planes hit the world trade center in New York, another went down in a field in Pennsylvania, and still one more crashed into the Pentagon. Approximately 3,000 people died from terrorist attack and many families lost their loved because of this. This event is incredibly important to me because we need more security in our country and we should have security on planes so if this might happen again we can arrest the people that were trying to attack someone on the plane or do some other type of violence. If we can do this then America will be very safe. The media I used to create my hexagon was colored pencils, a sharpie, and a pencil. I also used a ruler to make all the pictures straight and nice. The reason I used colored pencils was because it would bring out the color, whereas with markers the color would run out, plus it might even smear.

I like how you included the American flag and red white and blue.

I really liked the way you drew the Twin Towers to appear 3D. Nice job!

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
