Twisted Steel and Pennies Created Gold

Morris Plains Students donated coins for the Morris Plains 9/11 Memorial.

Morris Plains Mayor Frank Druetzler reminded the students from Borough School and St. Virgil Academy, "A year ago, I asked each of you to donate one penny every day for one hundred days... and look what happened."

He then pointed to the twisted steel that was once a powerful support beam of the World Trade Center. However, in its rusted and grossly contorted form it had somehow become stronger than ever; a memorial "built for the community by the community.”

I think it's wonderful that a second dedicated ceremony was presented to the school children of Morris Plains. What I don't understand is that every one of these children was bussed to the Memorial location. What a beautiful day for a walk and none of these kids were encouraged to stretch their legs and get some needed excercise and sunshine. I feel that this was a misuse of resources and gas. It just promotes laziness and pollution.
