“The ceremony on Sunday is just for families. This place is for anyone who wants to come and reflect and share their stories about what happened,”said John Michelotti, who organized the tribute” One life, one flag “to those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
One hundred soldiers placed the flags, of 91.5 centimeters by 152.5 centimeters, around the World Trade Center esphere, which was also damaged the day of the attacks. The flags will remain in BatteryPark until Monday and were placed at ground level so that people can read the names that were written in each of the flagpoles.
The names of 2976 victims were written, including those traveling in the two planes that hit the Twin Towers, and also the ones who died at the World Trade Center and the U.S. Pentagon in Washington.
