Our classroom, Room 204 from Olympic View Elementary School worked on a project that included many different phases of learning. In the end, we came up with the entire history of Olympic View! First, we interviewed senior citizens who went to this very school to find out what it was like back when they attended. We had several interviewees, and learned lots of information. We took the information that we heard, and wrote a total of 5 scripts with it. When our scripts were perfected, we went to a recording studio called Jack Straw Production.. We had professional recorders help us make good recordings, and in the end, we even got a C-D of them all! After we finished recording, we started to study even more about our school! We even managed to complete a timeline including important events from each decade that effected our school. Then our class broke up into 10 groups to study each decade from 1900-2002. Mrs. Olson asked each student to make 3 slides, the first slide told a major event of a decade, the second slide told the events at Olympic View during a certain decade, and the third slide connected the events of the decade to the events happening at Olympic View. We have created this to honor our 100th anniversary.

In 1900 America had only 8000 cars. There were too many accidents because people were speeding and running people over. To control the drivers, local traffic laws decided in 1902 the state of Vermont required every car to have a person waving a red flag. If they were a women driver. Women were considered bad drivers in the 1900’s. Every car cost $3000 to by and $3000 to run each year. There were some drivers that got stuck in the mud. This problem was solved embarrassingly by a farmers horse pulling out the car. In the 1900’s drivers were starting to be controlled. By Peter
Automobiles Effected O.V. because they changed the way people went to work. Some kids might have had toy cars or wanted a car. By the 1960’s students were bused to school and today, parents drive their students to school.
O.V. 1 room school house built 1903 Grades 1-4 come with Ms. Brooks the first O.V. teacher 1904 Second one room school house built grades 1-8 1909 Mr..John Hamrmeling was principal School is known as East Oak Lake school. Students walked to school through the woods and it was considered dangerous because of animals and strangers.
If the Wright Brother’s never invented the airplane what would happen? In 1903 in Dayton, Ohio at Wilbur and Orville Wright’s bicycle shop, the Wright Brother’s were putting finishing touches on a Whopper Flying Machine. They tested the plane and the best flight was 59 seconds and 842 feet. Nine days before Kitty Hawk, the Secretary of Smithsonian Institute and Samuel Langley had tried to launch a winged contraption off of a house boat on the Potomac River in Washington D.C. Langley was backed by a $50,000 grant by The War department. Those are some of the events that happened during the first flight. by Joey
1903 First one-room schoolhouse built. 1904 Grades 1-4 commenced with Ms. Brooks as the first teacher. 1909 Second one-room schoolhouse with grades 1-8.
Planes effected O.V. by making it easier to communicate. It also gave the option for students to learn more about mechanics.
In 1904, during the third Olympics some problems started. Only six foreign teams showed up to the St. Louis Olympics, because people were going at the worlds Fair instead of the Olympics. As a result the US won 22 out of 23 track and field events. Then the games became a big mess among the various athlete club that had sponsored US competitors. Also it was a athlete freak show were the athletes were arguing about almost everything to do with the Olympics. By Sarah
Olympic Views first school house is built, one room school house 1903 Grades 1-4 are commenced with Miss Blanche Brooks as the first teacher in 1904. Second room school house is built in 1909, grades 1-8. Mr. John Harmeling is principal School is know as East Oak Lake school.
Olympic View was effected by the 1904 Olympics because relatives might have been going to the Olympics and kids would be cheering for them. Kids also might have been playing new games from the Olympics or having knew games with new rules.
From 1914 to 1918 Britain, France, Germany, America, Russia and Japan fought each other in what's called the First World War. It started when Arch duke Francis Ferdinande was shot. Also the cruise liner Lusitania was torpedoed off the Irish coast by a German sub. 1,200 lives were lost. It caused Britain to join the War. America joined the war effort in 1917 after Russia pulled out of the war. 8 million participated, 4 million were killed, wounded or missing. World War I became known as the War to End all Wars. By Matthew W.
In 1914 World War I started In the blizzard of 1916 people where scared the roof would cave in New school built in 1915 Thomas E. Catching is Principle 70 students at O.V. World War I ends in 1918
Because of world events of this decade, the effects that it might have had on students at O.V. were that some students fathers and older brothers marched off to war, some never seen again. This effected students grades because they where thinking of their lost family. Also the thought of the roof caving in on the 70 students and the tension of the war caused students grades to drop.The new school helped ease some tension of the roof caving in.
Albert Einstein was born in 1905. Einstein helped invent the Atomic Bomb that ended World War II. In 1905 at the age of 26, he published the simple-sounding of E=mc2 ( E stands for energy, M stands for mass, and C stands for speed of light). Einstein died in Princeton, New Jersey in April of 1955. Albert Einstein was a genius who changed the world. Today in schools people still use Einstein’s theory. By Aron
School was named O.V. Thomas E. Catching was principal Wild cat was short Einstein published his general theory of relativity in 1915. Einstein revolutionized our understanding of the universe.
Albert Einstein effected the school with his scientific theory that helped kids in O.V. Science had new meaning. Because of the Atomic Bomb invented by Einstein, nudear science was studied in higher grades and history changed with Atomic weapons.
In the 1920’s sports became of more importance. With Babe Ruth who hit 60 home runs (the record of the time) and Big Bill (the greatest tennis player of the time) fans went crazy. And, in 1927, 104,942 fans paid a record of $2,658,600 to watch Jack Dempsey in the ring. As well as men athletes, women athletes shined in the lime light. Helen Wills a.k.a “Little Miss Poker Face” a tennis player who won every match she entered and Gertrude Elderly who was the first woman to swim the English Channel and in 14 hrs and 31mns (almost 2 hrs faster than the men’s record) showed the world that women play a crucial role in sports. by Erica
19251923192819301920 In 1921 the first phase of the brick building was built Through out the 1920’s girls were restricted to only wearing skirts or dresses. Also, girls and boys had separate playgrounds.
In the 1920’s sports became of more importance.With Babe Ruth who hit 60 home runs (record of the time) and Big Bill (the greatest tennis player of the time) fans went crazy. Also, as well as men women shined in the limelight. Because adults were paying more attention to sports stars so were kids from Olympic View. During recess boys would play baseball during recess and pretend they were Babe Ruth. And though girls had to where skirts and couldn’t play sports at school they still had the desire to play tennis as greatly as Helen Wills and swim as fast as Gertrude Elderly.
Man O’ War was a great horse in 1920’s this horse was a big combination of size,which was 1,150 pounds and his speed. Man O’ War proved himself the horse of eternity,” which means he can never die. Man O’ War won five champion awards when he was running races. Now don’t you wish you were there to see this amazing horse in action? By Vanessa
¥ In the 20’s our school had a new principal. His name was Mr.. Thomas E. Cathing ¥ In 1921 a new phrase brick building was built and it included 8 class rooms.
Because the horse became famous Kids would maybe want horses Because it was a race horse Kids would spend their money on watching it race Because it was the horse of eternity People would think that it never dies
For an average American during the Great Depression, jobs were scarce. Families were evicted from their homes and forced to live on the streets. People who were in need of jobs waited for trains to start and then jumped on them without a ticket. Many people in search of jobs left their families. After thousands of people had lost their homes and jobs because of the stock market crash in 1929, rough shacks were built in vacant areas of many cities. The shacks became known as Hoovervilles, in reference to Herbert Hoover, who was president when the great depression struck. Hoover wasn’t considered very helpful during this time. Times were rough, and America could only wait to recover.
The Great Depression was a horrible thing that tore up the nation with poverty. It all started when the stock market crashed in 1929. About 3 1/2 years later the banking system of the United States had collapsed. 13-15 million people were out of work (that’s about 25% of the population!) “We saw a crowd of some 50 men fighting over a barrel of garbage set outside the back door of a restaurant.” Said an observer in Chicago. Hunger was every where. Children played the game of eviction with their dolls, it was a known and normal thing. In 1931,even before banking had collapsed, 20,000 people had committed suicide,there was much more to come. By Tess, Katies and Natalie
In 1929 stocks sold three times as much as in 1920 People bought stock by borrowing money from banks Stock market crashed People lost money banks closed People lost jobs People didn’t have enough money and became in dept People couldn't buy enough food, new clothes or pay for there houses People lost their houses lived on the streets and in hoovervills named after Herbert Hoover the current president. He helped poverty in other countries during World War I but not during the Depression Hoover was not voted president again and Franklin Roosevelt was elected Roosevelt passed new laws creating jobs and government programs The number of unemployed lessened By the late 1930’s the Depression was over 1930’s
During the 1940s World War II the Japanese was banned from Olympic view and a lot of friends were lost. The Pearl Harbor bombing took place the 1940s. A lot of people were killed during the bombing. The Olympics were canceled and baseball season was going on. By Tylor
Jackie Robinson was an African American and was the first black to ever play in the All American League. He played on the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was abused and beat up, but played with a good attitude and after a while he broke the color line. He made it so all people of different colors could play baseball. More teams were formed and a new league was formed called the National League, because more teams were formed where blacks and whites played baseball on the same team.
World War II was caused by a number of issues. The cause of the war was mostly about stopping Nazi Germany from taking over the world. The Nazis were a dictatorship, which is where the government chooses and makes the laws. The Nazis who had taken over the government wanted to kill mainly Jews. The major powers were: Germany, Japan, Italy, Britain, Russia and the U.S. By Elliot
What was going on at O.V. in World War II? There weren't as many teachers because a lot men went to war and the women had to work in the factory. Another event that happened was that there was a lot of food rationing. There were meatless Mondays and meatless Wednesdays. There were victory gardens that people grew themselves, that grew vegetables such as turnips, carrots and potatoes which none of the kids really liked.
In the 40’s there had been some improvements on the school of O.V. some of the people asked for an annexation also it made people realize more about other countries in the world. Like RUSSIA, Germany, Japan and Britain. Also the playground was divided into four sections k-2 and 3-5 also girls had to wear skirts and boys had to wear pants. The teachers were very strict.
The Olympics were held in 1948. This was the first Olympics since 1936 because of WWII. They were held in ST.Moritz Switzerland. Having the Olympics meant that since the war was over, life was getting back to nor- mal. Dick Button from U.S.A. won the gold medal for men’s figure skating in the Olympics. By Jorge
During the Olympics, World War II occurred. Because of their involvement in WW II, the Japanese were banned from Olympic View School, and many Japanese were sent to Internment Camps. Some of the parents left to fight or help with the war. During World War II, the Pearl Harbor bombing took place, and a lot of people were sad that so many US Soldiers died. The Olympics were canceled and the people were mad because they had been looking forward to the events.
In June 25, 1950 President Harry Truman decided to help South Korea, because North Korea and China were invading South Korea. If United states did not help South Korea, North Korea would of captured all of Korea. This is important in history because United States helped South Korea stop North Korea and China in world domination, which means taking over the world. Also North Korea tried to prevent everyone from becoming a communist. Dwight D. Eisenhower became president in 1952.Eisenhower promised he would promptly end the Korean war. So an armistice, which means end to arms, was signed on July 27, 1953. There were no winners in the Korean War. Korea remained a land divided, as it had been before the war. North and South Korea were in ruins, mostly every thing was destroyed. Both sides lost over hundreds of thousands men. America lost thirty four thousand soldiers. Olympic View students lost there dads, brothers and friends. It was a very sad time. By Yejeong -
Girls and boys had separate playgrounds Baby boomers were born Beginning of end of segregation After world war 2 lots of schools were built Brown vs. Board of education Thomas E. Catching retired
Because of the Korean War, the effects that it might have had on students in Olympic View were very sad, because lots of Olympic View dads, brothers, uncle, and friends were in the army. America lost 34 thousand soldiers, so most of the students lost their dads, brothers, uncles, and friends. Also lots of Korean students families were sad because some of their families are still in Korea and they are being bombed by North Korea and China.
Men,women, and children all over the world have fashions and styles that change from time to time. In the U.S.A., we have had a new style almost every decade. For example, 52 years ago, in the 1950’s, fashions and styles were completely different. Back then, girls wore styles like: Stilletto heels, a very popular shoe that had a thin stilt like heel, Poodle skirts which were popular skirts which were usually pink and always had flare, and bright red lip stick. Boys wore styles like: Denim Jackets, which were totally cool, Gray flannel suits, sometimes with a colored shirt, and very narrow hats. Also people loved to were new product clothing such as: sports wear and wash and wear fabrics. Now, we mostly have T-shirts and jeans. Today, when schools have a “Sock Hop” people imitate the look of the 50’s. Just imagine if everyday people dressed like someone from the 50’s, wouldn’t that be strange. By Maddie
Cold War and Air Raid Drills Korean War Thomas Catching Retired George Ryals became principal. Separate Playgrounds for boys and girls Baby Boom
Fashion: Peoples attitudes, language, cloths, traditions such as “Sock Hops.” The children might have attended a sock hop which is a dance where you listen to music from the 50’s, dress like someone from the 50’s, and dance in your socks. Cold and Korean War: People did various Drills like air raid drills, children were scared along with adult that we would go to war with Russia. People sometimes didn’t feel safe.
1945 to 1991 were known as the Cold War years. A cold war is was when two countries were rivals and didn’t talk to each other.During this time conflicts were fought mostly with words and economic weapons. Economic weapons or money issues are where the government uses money as a weapon. During the Cold War, both the Americans and Soviets (Who are Russians) were frightened by each other, by making it hard for people to live by raising cost of items and lowering pay. Another tool for fighting during the Cold War, was the creation of the Berlin wall. The Berlin Wall was a fortified wall surrounding West Berlin. The Berlin Wall was an obvious symbol of the Cold War. The wall was built in 1961 and on the west side was communist and on the east side was Republic governments. The wall came down when East Germany was about to collapse, because Hungary let the East Germans pass through Hungary on their way to West Germany and Austria. Also on November 9, enthusiastic private citizens began to demolish whole sections of the wall. East Germany eventually helped destroy the Berlin Wall and reunite with West Germany. Finally, I think the Cold war was very important to history because if we hadn’t stopped the Soviets, they might of controlled more territory. By Chris Picture of Berlin Wall.
Air raid drills Thomas E. Catching retires George Ryals becomes principal Separate playgrounds for boys and girls Baby boom after WWII Korean War Cold War Building bomb shelters
The Cold War effected Olympic View, because kids in Olympic View had to do the Duck And Cover Drill regularly. The Duck and Cover Drill is were everyone goes into the hall and puts their hands over their head. This drill was used just incase of an air raid from Russia. It also could have effected Olympic View, because everyone was scared that Russia would bomb them and Russians was afraid that we’d bomb them. Another action people did was building bomb shelters. One of every twenty Americans made bomb shelters in their home, because they were afraid the Russians were going to bomb them. That’s how the Cold War effected Olympic View.
In the past, blacks were treated unjustly. At school, black kids were separated from the white kids. They drank from different fountains, sat at different tables at lunch, and used different bathrooms then white kids. For black adults who rode the bus to work, they had to sit in the back of the metro bus. The Civil Rights Movement took place in the 1960’s, starting in the southern states. It’s meaning was to create equal rights for blacks non-violently. Dr. Martin Luther King J.R., a black preacher, was the most heroic person in the Civil Rights Movement. He helped by leading people in such things as boycotts and peace marches. His famous “I Have A Dream” speech, was read at the Lincoln memorial, on August 28, 1963. This speech changed the future lives of others. In 1964, King won the Nobel Peace Prize, and in 1965, he led a peace march in Selma, Alabama, for blacks rights to vote. Tragically, his life was cut short when he was shot and killed in 1968. Even though Martin Luther King died, his vision of equal rights lives on. By Alex
Around the World at this Time Something going on in the 1960’s was the Civil Rights Movement, promoting equal rights for blacks. O.V. at this Time 1960-George Royals retired and Merritt Des Voinge became principal. 1963- President Kennedy was shot and the kids became sad. 1968-Merritt Des Voinge retired and Louise Kranz became principal. Effects that the World Event Might have had on O.V. The effects that the Civil Rights Movement might have had on O.V. students were that there were a lot of black students coming into the North end of Seattle from the South end, to get the same opportunities as the whites, who lived in the North end. Busing started in public schools because of the Civil Rights Movement.
Born Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali was and still is a famous black boxer who would often write poetry. In the ring he would say, “Float like butterfly, sting like a bee.” When he was younger he would spend many hours a day with a trainer practicing to box like the pro he was. He announced that he had joined a black lead Muslim group and he became a part time minister. Ali changed his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali. Ali had a very successful life. He was apart time minister, an excellent boxer and a talented poet. The crowed would predict he would lose and he would win and they would judge him because of his color. Ali is very important to our history because he changed the way people thought about him, and became a hero. By Briana
George Royals retired and Merrit Des Voinge became principal President Kennedy was shot Vietnam war involvement started and attitudes and values of students began to change Anti-segregation in school began Merrit Des Voinge retired and Louis kranz became principal
The effect that Ali had on the students is that he encouraged them to never give up on what they believing. People never thought that a black man could be so successful, wealthy, and influential. Ali influence was during the time where schools were changing and becoming multi-ethnic.
Dr. Christiaan Barnard carried out the first heart transplant. A heart transplant is when somebody gets their unhealthy heart taken out of them, and they get a good healthy heart (from somebody else) put inside them. Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed this first heart transplant in South Africa, in the early 1960’s. If this never happened people would die of heart problems like: heart attacks, heart disease, and other heart problems. By Esther
Merritt Des Voige became principal at Olympic View. There was an earthquake.
Because of the world events of this decade, the effects that it might have had on students on O.V., were that very few people died because of their damaged heart. Heart transplants also improved science. O.V., heart transplants could have really changed the way people thought about science. Finally, the possibilities became endless.
Rock music and outdoor concerts had an effect on the students at O.V. school. Rock music invited swearing and the discussion of current issues. Some kids became involved with drugs. Today we have programs, like KLUE, which help students whose families are involved in drugs. New fashions included bell bottom pants and girls started to wear jeans. The relaxed attitudes of the.1970s have carried into today.They have changed how students behaved in school even now. By Mitchell
In the early 1970’s young men and women continued to wear ragged denim blue jeans or army fatigues, cotton T-shirts and long hair. Sometimes their blue jeans were decorated with peace symbols. Some people wanted to stand out from the crowd, by wearing Calvin Klein's special blue jeans, that are decorated with rhinestones or silver studs. In the mid 1970’s menswear entered a “peacock period” with brightly colored polyester (stretchy pants) leisure wear with purple rose, orange and green patterns. On the weekends, many men wore jogging suits, even those who had no intention of ever jogging. Some women followed this fashion trend to. Don’t you think the days of the 1970’s were the days people had the passion for fashion? By Kortney
* In 1970 kids started dressing differently, by wearing Bell Bottom pants. Girls were know allowed to wear pants to school, and in public. * In 1973 Louise Kranz retired as principle * In 1974 Edward Balarenzo became principle. * Through out the 70’s kids had more casual attitudes.
Because Bell Bottoms were made. Girls were allowed to wear pants. Because more casual pants were made. People had more casual attitudes
Major-League baseball players went on strike on June 12, 1981. The players and team owners could not reach an agreement over salaries. The players lost $30 million in wages and team owners lost about $166 million in revenue. People who had always enjoyed either going to ball games or watching baseball on TV became frustrated. Many wondered weather the fan's would become so turned off that they might not return to watching baseball once the strike settled down. However, baseball survived. The fan’s did not desert their favorite teams by the end of the decade, 50 million fan’s were attending major-league games each year. Revenues were more than $1 billion a year, including TV deals. By Matt K.
Ronald Reagan shot but not killed in 1980 Baseball strike 1981 Robert Stone became principal in 1982 89 school years in the old Olympic View school in 1988 Final open house on June 10 in 1989 No more baseball …….
Kids could not watch their favorite teams on TV after they were done with their homework. So kids would get there grades lowered because they would not concentrate on their homework. Baseball strike resulted in higher pay for sport figures which created a different attitude toward sports. Now baseball players earned well over what doctors and lawyers earned. I’m on strike!
The style for teens and grown ups in the 1980’s were called the “yuppie style.”The typical clothing for yuppie females were jeans khakis, or long shirts with conservative plaid prints or narrow stripes; white v-neck or penny loafers. The fitness craze led to a new fashion. The styles were one piece body suits,stirrup pants, logging, tank top, and jogging shorts.These items were made out of snug-fitting fabrics such as Spandex. “Yuppie males”wore dark colored business suits to work which were called the outfit for professional working man was considered a white dress shirt, silk tie, tailored jacket, and leather wing tipped shoes. The casual style for teens, punks, or “Grunge”was usually black clothing, leather jacket,and ripped jeans. The hair style was curly, Mohawks, or spikes hair dyed bright colors. Most punks had earrings on either nose,ears,and some other body parts. By Tiffany Ip
Fashion effected O.V. by students judging each other by their looks. The students would try to be popular by their judging others on their looks and who wore the different styles that changed during the years.
Ronald Reagan was the first actor to become president after he defeated Jimmy Carter in 1981. (The 39th president.) It was a landslide vote (which means a vote where one side got tons of votes and the other side got little votes.) Lots of people were not happy with the ways of president Carter. Reagan had some political experience when he was governor of California. He was a great communicator and Reagan made friends with the leaders of China. Some said it was odd to have an actor for president, some did not agree because they loved and admired him. Most people thought Reagan created a huge money spending problem for our government. He is still living, but diagnosed with Alzheimer. By Marianne
When Ronald Reagan became president people started spending more money on material things and the military became more popular due to government spending. When the baseball strike happened people started spending money in sports. The new school was finished on September 28, 1989. By the 80’s, teachers couldn’t hit kids anymore.
fashion New school Ronald Reagan Base ball strike Viet Nam war Because of the world events of this decade, the effects it might of had on O.V students were people started spending money on material things such as houses, clothes and luxury items because of the Reagan’s spending habits. People were able to purchase items on credit, buy now, pay later! The military became famous because Ronald Reagan’s administration spent more money on the military and less on social issues such as funding for schools and poverty. So some families became poorer and others richer. This was a time for spending money. Same with the base ball strike, which created higher salaries for sports stars. Students judged each other by their looks. And Olympic View got a new school building.
Saddam Hussein tried to take over the Middle East's oil resources in 1990. The United States was an ally of middle east, so they helped out a war called Desert Storm. The U.S. was very worried Saddam Hussein would use biological and chemical weapons because they are easy to produce and store. So the U.S. tried to find and destroy Hussein’s weapons. The war ended by middle East excepting the U.S. terms. By Josh
New school (No cloak rooms) War on drugs (Backpack check) Ramona Curtis principal New technology Computer animation was possible New teachers at O.V.
Kids at O.V. might have been scared because of a war with the Middle East. Because of technology students would find out more and more facts about the war.
In April 19,1995 in Oklahoma City Timothy James Mcveigh and Lynn Nichols hid a bomb in a rented truck. The bomb exploded at the Affred P. Federal Building killing 168 people and injuring more then 500. It killed 19 children under the age of 5. The federal government said that the motive for the bombing was that people were against the government. An hour and a half after the blast, Mcveigh was arrested on an unrelated weapons violation during a routine traffic stop. Both Mcveigh and Nichols were soldiers. Terry Lynn Nichols was charged as an accomplice on May 10, 1995. On August 11, 1995 both Mcveigh and Nichols were charge by a grand jury for murder conspiracy to commit conspiracy to use weapon of mass destruction. In October, attorney General Reno authorized federal prosecutor to seek the death penalty in both cases. Mcveigh and Nichols were killed in the electric chair as consequences for their crime. By Adi
New school built, no cloak rooms War on drugs, had backpack checks Ramona Curtis principal. She added lots of programs such as: art classes, camps for grades third through fifth, music, and drama class New teachers Technology became big as computers got smaller, and put in class rooms. Power Point slide shows came into our school Nation Science Units were required
When Ramona Curtis became principal students in O.V. got art, music, and drama classes, and third through fifth graders got to go to camp. When computers got put in class rooms students could go on the internet. But when the Bombing in Oklahoma happened students were scared to go to school. They might not have felt safe in school which effected students education. These were the effects of the Oklahoma Bombing.
This is a real photo of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers being attacked by Osama Bin Laddin and his terrorists. People all over the world were devastated. They all were sad even in Europe and Asia. Police and Firemen lost their lives to try to save many lives. Many civilians were killed in the collapse, including many children. We all wish that Bin Laddin had not done the attack. Although he was from Afghanistan, since we are now at war, we don’t want to hurt any civilians living near Bin Laddin’s caves. By Sonoma
On September 11, 2001 something terrible happened; something that I am sure affected us all. Three to five Afghanistan males created a plan to hijack two planes and crash them into the twin towers.They succeeded in this plan. 10,000 people died instantly when the plane hit! In conclusion we are now in a war with the Afghanistan and our airlines are better protected and ready!
On O.V. Students Because the plains crashed into the twin towers ….. Because the Afghanistan men crashed into the twin towers… Many students were scared. We are now in a war with the Afghanistan which makes kids worried. Because of all the tragedy…..People are much nicer to each other.
