TeWinkle honors 9/11 victims with ribbons

TeWinkle Intermediate School commemorated the 10th anniversary of 9/11 by taking time to remember every victim of the terrorist attacks.

The Costa Mesa school held a ribbon memorial Thursday where each student had the chance during their physical education class to place a ribbon for the 3,023 victims.

Students placed 2,652 red ribbons for the victims of the World Trade Center, 245 blue ribbons for the victims of the hijacked planes and 126 white ribbons for the victims of the Pentagon.

A Camp Pendleton Marine also came to the school Friday to speak at two special assemblies.
