This series of pictures came to me in an e-mail (Oct 2002) and I thought I'd share it.
Utah remembers the victims of September 11, 2001
The above picture was taken on the mall in front of the Sandy, Utah city hall.  The photos don't do it justice.  There was very little publicity about this, but it was a real traffic stopper.  People would park and get out and walk among the flags.  Some brought bundles of flowers and left them at the base of a flag.  Others came together and just hugged each other hard in the silent memory of the terrible loss that we suffered one year ago.  We all know over 3000 people lost their lives, but seeing this display, and walking among it, helps put perspective on just how big a number that is.
