Loma Linda Academy Tree Dedication Ceremony to Remember the 9/11 Lives Lost.

Last Friday, Sept. 9th, Loma Linda Academy Girl’s Football Coach, Brianne Carroll, had her football team participated in a dedication of a tree that will be planted on the school grounds in remembrance of 9/11 to pay tribute to the lives lost along with a pledge from each team member to perform random acts of kindness as part of the national "I Will" campaign.



But Loma Linda Academy girls football coach Brianne Carroll thought her players could not only use the occasion of the 10-year anniversary as a reminder, but as a way to get them to think of others.

The school ceremony also included a chapel service featuring a speech from Loma Linda Academy graduate, Elias Hakimian, a1999 Loma Linda Academy Graduate. Mr. Hakimian was working as a financial adviser for Morgan Stanley in the 65th floor of the south tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001 when it was attacked but he managed to make it out safely.


Hakimian gave the students a message of living within God's plan. "God has a plan for their life and that it is to be in a relationship with Him," he said. "God's a pursuer, but sometimes we shouldn't have to wait for him to pursue us." Hakimian said the service to others was one that the Class of 1999 graduate said is important for the students to remember.

Hakimian is now the owner/operator of a financial advising business based in Newport Beach, CA and the memories from the day reaffirm his need to have God in his life every day.















 The I Will campaign in observance of the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 was created by President Obama in 2009, enabling us all to pay tribute through action.  The day will be marked by millions engaging in good deeds and charitable service of their choosing.  People from all over America will add their voice and together, we will consider the meaning of this day on our own terms, not those of terrorists.

9/11 will become the day we pay tribute as one people, choosing to help those in need.  Unified once more as we were on 9/11 by what we have in common: Our compassion and concern for the well being of others. Every great change begins with two words: I WILL

Authors Comments: My daughter graduated from Loma Linda Academy in 2007. She was 12 years old the morning of the 9/11 attacks. I remember driving her to school and she was so quiet and almost in shock. When we got to the school, everyone was in tears and disbelief; teachers, parents, and school kids…….I felt so guilty making her go to school but knew the school would be discussing it all day.  These assemblies at LLA helped the kids try to understand and then start the healing process.


The Sept. 11 attacks were moments that our country will never forget. Do you remember where you were on 9/11?

Kristin, this sounded like a great event. What a great way to remember, but to also look to a better future - planting a tree.

Hi Cal,

My daughter went to school there and this school is definintely interested in the children's future. The coach goes far beyond being a coach as she really cares. I am sorry I did not know about it ahead of time as I would have liked to have met Mr.Hakimian.
