This was sent to Bravest Memorial. Hope you find it as touching as I did.

3,031 large flags in Utah. A reverent silence prevails in this eerie representation of those who died on Sept. 11th.

Utah remembers the victims of September 11, 2001

I never heard or saw anything about this in the media. I was going to the bank when I saw this. I went home, got my wife Linda, and came back with a camera. Below is my best, though inadequate, attempt to share the experience with you.....

I saw many families while I was there. It was hard watching adults struggling to cope with their own emotions while caring for children who were far too young to understand the significance of the flags around them. Too the credit of the children, I didn't see any who could not somehow sense that this was a special place. For a few moments, everyone who came, young and old, male and female, families, and even a group of mentally handicapped individuals stopped their busy daily lives to remember. If those who caused this pain only knew how much stronger we have become, and how terribly their comrades have paid, and will continue to pay, for this horrible crime, I wonder if they still would have done what they did.
