All Wake County schools are required to observe a moment of silence today in honor of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that took place a decade ago.
The school board unanimously adopted a resolution on Tuesday for schools to observe a moment of silence every year to remember 9/11. Since the anniversary will fall on Sunday, the date set by the school board for this year was today.
"It's a momentous event in our history and what it means to us," said school board member Chris Malone. "I think it's important that our children understand what it means and where it's going to take us."
