The students were encouraged to write about their feelings, and the students in French III wrote their sentiments in English and in French. They then posted their writings on the wall outside of Mrs. Goodwin's classroom.
Mrs. Goodwin explained the design is of the French flag and the Eiffel Tower. The message is: WE STAND UNITED WITH THE WORLD AGAINST TERROR. "By creating this memorial, we are supporting the country of France in its time of need and sorrow as they and other countries did for the U.S. during 9-11," she said.
The design also features headlines from various French newspaper and the French motto, Liberté - Égalité - Fraternité. Students were encouraged to sign and post commemorative items, such as votive candles, teddy bears and flowers, on the flag or at the base of the Eiffel Tower.
Special thanks to Ms. Schnabel, who drew the Eiffel Tower, and to Ms. Maloney, who asked one of her art students, Melvin Delgado, to create the memorial title using Photoshop.
