Some students at St. Paul Elementary School in Akron are learning about the human toll on September 11, 2001. Students spent the last couple of weeks placing victims' names on more than three thousand index cards - one of each person who died that day. Teacher Jud Hartman told NewsChannel 5 that project really did have an impact.
"I think the thing that really struck them is how close American became after the tragedy, said Hartman. "Some of them went home and asked their parents and their grandparents what they were doing when it happened."
Those cards - 3,042 of them - are being distributed at the site of a memorial on East Warner Road, where retired firefighter John Woofter hopes all cards will be distributed to people who stop by.
I would like the people to just take one card and concentrate on that one person and their prayers for them," said John Woofter, a retired firefighter.
