King’s Academy Students Observe Patriot Day

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the King’s Academy took time to remember those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

While most of the students were probably too young to remember the actual events of that day, TKA observed a time of remembrance at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck the north tower of the World Trade Center.

All students, faculty and staff on campus joined in a time of prayer and scripture reading, and TKA’s flag was flown at half-staff for the day as well.

Secondary chapels viewed a moving student-produced video explaining the events of that day and God’s provision through it and following it. Students from the youngest pre-kindergarten children to the oldest seniors all came away with a better understanding of the 9/11 events and a better appreciation for current events as they have resulted from that day. It was a poignant time of reflection for all.
