Students at Greensburg Salem High School, along with young Christians across the country, gathered around the school's flag pole for a moment of prayer and reflection Wednesday morning.

The nationwide See You at the Pole event has taken place on the fourth Wednesday of September since 1990. Students at several schools in Westmoreland County participated in the early morning event.

"It's supposed to spiritually connect everyone's faith, and show a unity and connection in our faith," said Jacob Carpinelli, a senior at Greensburg Salem and president of the school's One-to-One club, which organized the event. He added that the event is open to all students and intended to kick off the school year in a positive way.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
