The Annual 9/11 Commemoration reminds us of the Unity we experienced in 2001. Utah’s 18th Annual Healing Field® Event located at the Sandy City Prominade
SANDY, UT, UNITED STATES, September 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Once again, the Sandy City Promenade will become a sea of red, white and blue as over 3,000 U.S. flags will fly in memory and honor of each victim of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and each Utah fallen military or civil servant hero. The Colonial Flag Foundation proudly presents the 18th Annual Healing Field® tribute September 7-12, 2019. Please mark your calendar and join us for this inspiring event and support this year’s cause, “Remembering the One” a powerful program of Honor365.
Three terrorist attacks killed thousands of innocent victims in a single day, and thousands of U.S. flags will fly in a beautiful and memorable sea of red, white & blue with each flag telling the story of one person. The flags honor the lives lost in an uplifting display of the Stars & Stripes, while raising funds for Honor 365’s dynamic programs to benefit veterans.
Volunteers will, as they have done for years in the past, post 3,300 U.S. flags south of the Sandy City Hall in perfect rows and columns on Friday, the 6th of September beginning at 5:30 PM. Those who have taken part in the setup of flags enthusiastically return year after year to take an active part in the event, and there is a shared excitement felt when posting the flags.
With flags flying & free to the public, visitors may walk amid them and read the names of those remembered that are printed on tags attached to the flags. Knowing that those killed in the attacks are remembered brings a sense of healing to those visiting the display, and flags will remain displayed daily through Wednesday, September 11th before being taken down the following evening at 5:30 PM.
A special program and ceremony will take place on Wednesday, September 11th, which is the 18th anniversary of the 2001 attacks. This touching program brings the event into focus that the mature may remember and the young may learn
