SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Students at St. Mark Catholic School in Sheepshead Bay gathered for a special Mass and ceremony today to honor the victims of Sept. 11.

Students raised a "Never Forget" flag as a tribute to the victims. Church leaders say they also want students to consider other ways to honor those who were lost.

"As I reminded the children, never forget doesn't mean to never forgive," says Rev. Joseph Grimaldi. "It means to forgive and move on in our lives and to see it in a positive light in terms of the good that many people did and the months and the years after 9/11 and in helping so many people."
