September 11 — A Flag from the World Trade towers survived to become a symbol of sacrifice in service, loss, and determination. The National 9/11 Flag tour is displaying what is being called a modern-day version of the Star Spangled Banner. The tattered version of the Stars and Stripes recovered from Ground Zero following the attacks on the World Trade Center in September 2001, is on a National 9-11 Flag Tour of the 50 states on its way to being restored before the 10th anniversary of the attacks. The National 9-11 flag was destroyed in the collapse of the World Trade Center. “Heroes” in all 50 states are working to help stitch the flag back to its original 13-stripe form. Once repaired, the flag will become part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum being built at the World Trade Center site.
