The flags are up and we remember

Posted by Kathleen Smith

On my way into DC on Wednesday afternoon, I saw the flags going up. These are the American flags that go up on the overpasses on I-66 and Route 50 inside the Capitol Beltway each year before September 11th. This started on September 12th, 2001 by patriotic citizens. Since then the flags have been put up by volunteers from various organizations. And the flags are then taken down a week later.

In Washington, DC, just as in New York, September 11th has many memories and meanings. Each year I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing at the time that I heard that the planes had crashed into the World Trace Center. I know who told me, I know who I told, and I know who in my family on the West Coast I talked with first. I was working in DC and was supposed to be in New York. My staff and I were supposed to be producing an event in New York that evening; many were en route or in the office. A last minute meeting change made the difference between us being within reach of Ground Zero or not. I remember this each year; life can change so quickly.

Each year I remember those who were lost in the Twin Towers and the families whose lives have been forever shattered. Each day I am touched by someone whose job is on the front lines of the global war on terror and is focused on protecting our country – be it here in the United States or overseas.  I thank them for their service.

We as a nation have many special days of remembrance. Many of these days were decreed many generations ago, but not this one. This happened in our lifetime and it has left its mark. My prayers go out to all those who were touched by this day. My hope is that we don’t have the need in my lifetime for a new day of remembrance.
