“We Shall Never Forget Them.”
Today marks the 12th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. On this day, wherever you live, we hope you’ll take a moment to remember and honor the victims of those horrible events. As a public expression of our sentiments today, we’re displaying a few extra U.S. flags outside as well as a brand new “Flag of Honor.” According to John Michelotti, the flag’s creator:
“The ‘Flag of Honor’ contains the names of all those who perished in the World Trade Towers, the Pentagon, United flights 175 and 93, and American flights 11 and 77. The flag also contains the names of the emergency service responders and personnel—the heroes who gave their lives so that others could live. Together, these flags give the families, friends, all of America, and the world, symbols that will forever memorialize, individually, the men, women and children who were lost that dreadful day. We shall NEVER forget them.”
Bottom Line: We found our new “Flag of Honor” for sale at a local Menard’s home-improvement store and they can still be purchased online HERE. As described by Mr. Michelotti, in place of the usual red and white stripes are the names of all of the men, women and children who were killed that day in those deadly attacks. Profit from sales of the flags goes to numerous charities. You can read all about it on the official flagofhonor.org website found HERE.
