Father Vinegar, Mother Oil
I stared at vinegar drowned in oil
And watched as salt water added to the
Heterogenous of it all.

The a la mode fragrance and
Frost sparkles atop the roofs of smoking chimney houses.
Staccato sink water sprinkled pots and pans

Upper School students Tabitha Bell and Ty Cramer asked faculty to recall where they were and what they were doing when planes hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center at 8:45 a.m. in New York City. Although the events of September 11 are vividly remembered by our faculty and millions of Americans, current Waterford students have no memory of the day; our oldest students were one year of age when the attacks occurred.
