9/11 Memorial Flag - Created by Caddo Parish School Children!

Mortgage and Lending with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp Louisiana NMLS#2289 Equal Housing Lender NMLS 69996


I have flown in and out of Shreveport Regional Airport, Shreveport, Louisiana, many times.  There is one thing that always catches my eye as I come and go.  This flag created by school children of Caddo Parish. 

This unqiue piece of art which hangs in the window is a beautiful flag created by children from the Caddo Parish Schools right after 9/11. It truly is a masterpiece and you can get lost in reading the different blocks individually created and then stitched together by a master seamstress. 

Just recently I was thinking that many of these children are most probably young adults now and may have even forgotten their artwork from over a decade ago.  Yet their tribute to the fallen of 9/11 and the heroes of our nation who rushed in to help others  remains. 

This flag reminds us....... never forget. I won't - will you?

My daughter was sitting in her 7th grade classroom that morning.  Today she's a firefighter/medic.  I will never forget and I'll always be very grateful to all those who serve, here and abroad in all capacities, military and first responders.

How cool.  I'm sure the children have to remember and be proud of what they created.
