Dougherty County - Students across the nation took time to talk about September 11th on Wednesday.

In Albany, Dougherty High School students discussed how current events, like terrorist attacks, affects our geography and culture.  11th grader, Demond Smith, says, "We spent most of the day talking about what happened September 11th and how it's affecting the world we live in and how it's affecting United States and the city we live in right now."

At Sherwood Acres Elementary School, students wrote journals about 9-11. 11-year-old Rab Davis reads his journal, "How do you think September 11th has changed you? My answer was, it definetly makes me think more of my country and reminds me we can do anything." His classmate, 10-year-old Ryeshia Walker reads, "How did you think September 11th has changed you? My answer was, it definetly makes me think more of my country and reminds me we can do anything."

Smith also said it's important to talk about events, like September 11th, so we don't repeat history.
