JACKSON, TN.- Students in Ms. Jackie Taylor's fifth grade class watched a video about what happened on one of the worst days in American history.

"Four planes were hijacked and they were supposed to kill a lot of people so that these people could get their point out," Annika Watson, a student in Ms. Taylor's class, said.

Most of the students in the class were born in 2003, which is two years after the terrorist attack.

"Why would they just do that to terrorize us? It is just crazy," said Josh Cole is a student in the class.

Teacher Jackie Taylor shared her feelings and thoughts about 9/11 with the students.

"I feel like it is my job to make sure they know what really happened that day and they understand the importance of 9/11," Taylor said.

The students at Pope Elementary School are well aware of the sacrifice made by those who died on September 11, 2001.

"These people sacrificed there lives for our country and I think they helped us make this country stronger," Watson said.

"Sacrifice was very important," said Cole. "It was very brave, very outstanding to me because they were trying to save us."
