I drove out to Tempe yesterday to see the 9/11 tribute, 2977 flags flying along the Tempe lakefront. It was a very moving experience.
Each flag was adorned with a card with the name of a person who died that day. Some cards just had the name and where the person worked while others had loving comments about the person.
This photo gives an overview of the scene and even this doesn't encompass all of the flags that were out there.
Although it was very moving to walk among the flags, I didn't tear up until this guy played taps. Everyone who was there stopped to look in his direction. I'm glad I went. It was a good way to mark the day.
Tomorrow I'll show you what else could be seen from this location.
