Last day of this season - Utah Healing Field

Under warm sunshine, with hints of approaching Fall, the 3000 flags of the Utah Healing Field have stood since 9/08. This is their last day of this season, opposite the Sandy (UT) City Hall on 10000 S.

At times the flags were still, individual sentinels. At others, in gentle breezes, they took on a life of their own, producing a waving sea of patriotic color suggesting unity of purpose, and strength from adversity.

Either in stillness or vigorous motion, the 10th Anniversary Utah Healing Field has left feelings of strong emotion and involvement in all who have seen it. They have come in droves: babies, school children and adults of all years, the well and the infirm, Americans and foreign visitors. The flags and their individual tags with names and brief information of victims of 9/11 seemed to enable viewers to communicate verbally their feelings to others.

The flags of the Utah Healing Field may come down at the end of day, but memories of darker days, of sacrifice and courage, are sure to linger.

A season to remember

Larry, I can see how this would be QUITE emotionally stirring.  A vivid reminder of the sacrifices made for us.
