Backpacks were tossed on the grass. Notebooks on the ground blew open, and the pages fluttered. Cars driving by honked their horns. But the students gathered around the flagpole at Denfeld High School took no notice. They had something much bigger on their minds: God.
For the 11th year in a row, students across the country and in Duluth gathered at flagpoles Wednesday to pray. At Denfeld, about 60 students met early Wednesday morning, bowed their heads and prayed aloud about their concerns for their school, their community and the world.
The annual event, known as "See You At The Pole," began in 1990 in Texas. Now more than 2 million students from all 50 states participate. At Denfeld, students prayed about a variety of things, including the victims of the terrorist attacks. They prayed also for their school and that Christianity would become a more powerful force among the students and teachers there, and that they would be given strength and courage to become leaders in that force.
