Proud to receive very special gifts from New York
Some very special guests, firefighters from New York, have presented us with a cherished and meaningful gift. We accept this American Tribute with pride and gratitude from some true heros.
This flag was designed to honor the men and women who demonstrated extraordinary courage and heroism during the attacks of 09/11. It details all of the people who were known to have perished during and subsequent to the attacks of 09/11. The artwork on the flag includes an individual insignia after every name indicating the victim’s status and the location. The blue field indicates the confirmed 09/11 fatalities that have followed since the attacks. The World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Flight 93 are all represented on the flag.
As a living tribute to those who died and continue to die, we aim to bring people and nations together – inspired by the brotherhood and dedication of these firefighters. It is our goal to generate healing through this extraordinary brotherhood, as our mission reaches out as a tribute for their gallantry. After years of serving those in need, we face a very different set of challenges and questions. Our mission has evolved to acknowledge and properly thank first responders who are ill as a result of their exposure to the toxic environment of Ground Zero. We proudly accept our position as Ambassadors of Goodwill reaching out with a positive message of love and caring after such a tragic event.
We held a special ride in July to benefit the State Firefighter’s Memorial Fund.
