Letter: Kaneland parents have reason to be proud

This morning (Sept. 10), I was honored and thankful to have attended the Kaneland High School fire science 9-11 Observance.
It was wonderfully done. The students representing the program and local fire departments were respectful and professional in the flag raising and lowering to half-mast.
The group that sang the â€œStar Spangled Bannerâ€ were as good or better than most of the singers at professional sporting events.
The fireman from the Sugar Grove Fire Department that emceed the ceremony gave a moving and heartfelt memorial honoring the firefighters and police, who did more than their duty on that horror-filled day, racing into a doomed building to guide the victims to safety, saving thousands with their own lives.
I thank the school for inviting Elburn American Legion Post No. 630 to attend their ceremony as guests and witnesses. Kaneland parents, you can be proud of your young people.
