My music teacher has influenced me and my goals by inspiring me with the importance, pride, joy, and rewards of playing music. In sixth grade I chose to play the clarinet in the school band and was introduced to a whole different atmosphere. Everyone that contributed different sounds to a song was a part of the jigsaw puzzle that resembled our band. Mr. Seckla was the director of it all, and he was the one that put all of the different pieces together and enabled us to grow as a band. Mr. Seckla inspired me to
keep working at the clarinet and to also pick up the flute. I was determined to learn everything

about the flute and keep practicing, and within a short time I developed the skills to play fluently. He helped me reach the goal of learning how to play the flute by stressing the importance of practicing to reach your goals. I often stay after school for a few hours a week to keep practicing for fun. Mr. Seckla remind me every day of the joy of playing music
by showing me and my band classmates what we can create by working together. After every concert, I feel pride swelling inside of me and I feel rewarded when we all take a bow and the audience applauds our performance. As I look around at my band classmates, it reminds me of one of the most significant qualities of playing music: teamwork.

those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Behind you is a steel beam. For many years, this beam was part of a system that formed an impressive building that stood above the skyline of the City of New York. Today, this rusted slab of steel serves as a reminder to thousands across our nation that we were attacked, we suffered, and we overcame.
But this beam also means more to us in Hudson—we lost one of our own on that
Hudson Firefighter make sure everything is ready for the trip to Hudson
day. This steel will be the centerpiece to a memorial, a memorial to remember, reflect, and offer a sense of promise to the family that their town will support them and will not forget. For us in the emergency services, we lost brother and sister firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical personnel. This steel will not let us forget.
Hundreds of thousands of military personnel have put themselves in harm’s way to protect us from the evil that looks to take our freedom and take the lives of the innocent. Many of these servicemen and women gave all while heroically performing their duties. This steel will show them their service is not forgotten.
Residents 10 years from
now, 50 years from now, 100 years from now will see this steel beam standing and know they shall not forget.
On September 11, 2011, we will come together again. This steel will stand in the heart of a Pentagon in the midst of a lush green field. The Town of Hudson will dedicate an eternal tribute to the victims of the Twin Towers, the victims of the Pentagon, and the victims of Flight 93. This steel beam will mark relevant passages of peoples’ lives, tragedy, and sorrow, but it will also mark patriotism, triumph, and rebirth and that we will never forget..”
Citizens were still
arriving at the Central Station at 8 p.m. to see the steel. We speak for the dead; they should be honored for their service and their sacrifice. Last Thursday, they spoke to me.
Steel from WTC that welders had marked with Crosses.
