EDISON – Upper School students at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison recognized the significance of Sept. 11 with special recollections and vocal performances during morning meeting on Wednesday.
Alessandra Cozzi, Upper School history and Italian teacher, began the program with her reflections about the meaning of the day that changed history forever. Cozzi read a moving poem by poet laureate Billy Collins and summed up her feelings with six words: “Out of hate love will grow.”
Senior Samantha Hart of Edison shared her recollections of 9/11, when she was a Kindergarten student. Samantha added that she feels more closely connected to the meaning of the day since running in the Tunnel to Towers 5K each year with the Wardlaw-Hartridge girls’ soccer team.
The MadJazz vocal group sang America the Beautiful and senior Neelam Patel of Edison closed the program with a solo of The Star-Spangled Banner.
