911 Field Of Flags Featured in Salem, Oregon

911 Field Of Flags Featured in Salem, Oregon

This memorial is featured in Salem, Oregon near the Oregon State Capitol. It was very touching for us to witness this site today as a family and we explained to our two young boys what these flags symbolized.

There is one  flag  displayed for each person who lost their life in the September terrorist attacks. There are 2,996 flags.

We will never forget this day and lift up all families who lost a loved one ten years ago today. Bless you all.
