Georgia Military College in Milledgeville highlighted the sacrifices of those the nation mourns with chalk.
More than 500 students and faculty paid tribute to ten thousand people killed in the September 11th attacks and the resulting Global War on Terror.
Scribbling with a piece of chalk is a simple gesture with a complicated mission-- help those born after September 11th to comprehend its impact.
"That's our purpose for doing this project," says the prep school history department chair, Colonel Scott Seagraves. "To help them remember, not necessarily the events, but the people."
He is 17 now, but was only 4 when the planes struck the Twin Towers. Senior, Conner Deen, says the visual opened his eyes to the day's significance.
