ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY – September 11, 2001 Attacks in the United States

A series of 4 coordinated suicide attacks were carried out by the terrorist group, Al Qaeda, on the morning of September 11. 19 militants hijacked 4 California bound airplanes from East Coast cities in the US and used the planes to target major American landmarks. Two planes were crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center, which caused them to collapse within two hours of being struck. One plane was crashed into the Pentagon building while the fourth plane, thought to be bound towards Washington DC, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers tried to fight back against the hijackers. The attacks claimed the lives of about 3,000 people and destroyed property worth billions of dollars. The attack was the precursor to the War Against Terror and the War in Afghanistan.

PARKING – Juniors and Seniors who elect to drive to school and use Catholic Central’s parking lots must obtain a parking contract in the main office to acquire a parking pass for the 2018-19 school year. Previous year’s parking passes are considered invalid. The parking contract is to be read, understood, and signed by both student and parent. Once the office receives the signed contract back, the student will then receive their parking sticker to be placed on the lower corner of the windshield on the driver’s side.

Vehicles without a current year CC parking sticker are subject to being ticketed or towed at the owner’s expense.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May the Breath of God bring you blessing. May you always know unconditional love in the gentle breeze of God’s presence. May God breathe into you a contemplative spirit, a spirit of love, a spirit of peace. And may you breathe a spirit of trust into the life around you. May the Breath of God bless you.  Maxine Shonk, OP
