JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — On Wednesday, Johnson City Middle School students honored 9/11 by inviting first responders, firefighters and local police to their classroom.

The students wrote heartfelt letters and baked desserts to show their gratitude. They also shared the story of 9/11 with a short presentation as a way to say thank you.

Students said they want first responders, firefighters and police to know they appreciate what they do for them and their community.

Emma McCaffery, seventh grader at Johnson City Middle School, said that students view first responders as role models.

“They go to work every day knowing that they could get hurt or something like that, but they do it anyways because they want to help their community,” McCaffery said.

Although the middle school students were not even born when the attack occurred, they still wanted to honor those who work hard every day to keep them safe.
