How Charlotte, NC Paid Tribute To 9/11 Victims And First Responders

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

 

9/11 Flags of Remembrance Memorial at Romare Bearden Park in Charlotte.

 

Charlotte's 9/11 Memorial on display at Romare Bearden park paid tribute to all who lost their lives on that awful day -- both those who perished in the attack on the Twin Towers and the heroic first responders who bravely sacrificed their own lives to save them.

For the past 13 years, tireless volunteers with the F.F. Steven Coakley Foundation have spent countless hours setting up this 9/11 Memorial in Romare Beadren Park in Charlotte to honor the victims of the terrorists attack on the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers on 9/11 by displaying American flags along with the name and a picture of each life that was taken. 2,977 flags are arranged in the shape of the World Trade Center Towers each year.

  

"One of the worst days in American history, saw some of the bravest acts in American history.  We'll always honor the heroes of 9/11.... we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice."

President George W. Bush

 

 

"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is not time for hate."

... Captain Jason M Dahl, Flight 93

Michael Jacobs hi Michael... emotions like hate and anger typically result in nothing positive in our lives. I always say when I feel those kinds of emotions welling up in me... I give myself 15 minutes to indulge and then I put it behind me.

That is a great way to pay tribute!  Days that remind us of past tragedies are always a little more difficult for us to enjoy.

Brian England hi Brian... obviously remambrance events are not prima facie events/days to be "enjoyed." But it's important to remember significant events in our lifetimes and history... without them we are nothing.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson good morning, Sally... I'm less concerned that we who lived through this will forget... more about those who have no memory of this event and won't fully understand its meaning in generations to come.
