THE 9-11 NEVER FORGET FLAG
Your Subtitle text
Just days after September 11, 2001 the 9/11 Remembrance Flag was created:

"The 9-11 Remembrance flag was designed to honor and remember the thousands of heroes who knowingly or not, gave up their lives for our freedom. When such a historical event as this takes place, it is our duty as American citizens to ensure that our future generations keep these memories alive; not dwelling on the sadness and devastation that occurred, but learning from the circumstances and making every effort to prevent similar tragedies in our future."     - Gwendolyn Wells-Loiacono (Designer)




In Remembrance

 
A flag of honor, a flag for reflection
It stands for us all uniting this nation
It will keep in our minds this tragic day
Memories of such heroic acts shall not go away

As we look on this flag of cloth and thread
A field of bright red for the blood that was shed
Not just on this day of lasting memories
But for lives that were given throughout history

Two towers of strength that rose up so high
Reaching for dreams, they stretched to the sky
They lay now in ruin at the hands of hate
Great symbols of our nation have met this fate

Our nation's military housed in a fortress of steel
We're reminded this day that war is so real
Hitting the heart of our power and might
Rise up America, this terror we must fight

Stars that shine on a field of bright blue
Remind us of heroes with hearts so true
An ordinary day, it had started out to be
Soon their lives would be given for you and me

A circle is drawn to stand for our nation's unity
A nation coming together through such tragedy
A reminder is given for all of America to see
That our freedom is never really free

"God Bless America" is written in white
Make this your prayer each and every night
God is always with us, He knows our needs
Bring America back to God, should be our decree

Much was given, many were lost on this day
A man of terror tried to take our spirit away
Do not let our new found spirit and unity fade
As you look on this flag, remember this day
