9/11 ~ 20th Anniversary
Remember the Day We Lost So Many….and Stood Together!!!

September 8th – 13th 2021
3636 Wood view Trace, Indianapolis, IN 46268-3196 USA

This September 11th marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that set a chain of events in motion that two short hours later would take the lives of 2,977 people in a horrific act of cowardice. For several panic-stricken hours, America witnessed the inexpressible, the incomprehensible, and the unthinkable.

The first positive image to come out of the terror that awful day was the American Flag.

One year later on September 11, 2002 we wanted to show the magnitude of the loss with a field of flags. The first Healing Field® flag display was erected in Sandy, Utah on September 10th, 2002 with the help of many community volunteers. The field consisted of 3,031 large US flags posted in perfect rows and columns, representing each life lost on that tragic day.

As we approach the 20th anniversary it’s the perfect opportunity for all of us to unite our communities and pay tribute to the lives lost on that tragic day. While we remember those killed that day, we also honor the many who have been killed or injured in protecting our freedom as well as those first responders & essential workers who serve us every day in our communities.

Remember the Day We Lost So Many….and Stood Together!!!
