Cool shot, Vanessa. The question is, how many flags are there?!?

That is a sight to behold...if you are an American. If you are not American, I hope you find it impressive.

About three years ago, a touring flag display honoring the 911 victims visited the town of Gresham, about ten miles east of Portland. The display featured about two blocks of American flags with a white strip added on the bottom. On that strip were the names of about 20-30 victims of the disaster. Each flag had different names on it. On one side of this field of flags was a line of different colored flags probably representing citizens of other countries lost in the disaster. I'll post some photos next week.

911 was a powerful and tragicevent and despite the fact that it occurred on American soil, it brought together Nations from around the world and now more than never, the American flag symbolizes freedom! One does not need to be American to find this a "site to behold". I'm really looking forward to seeing the photos you mentioned, Cal!

We were attending an event next door to this beautiful site. In the late afternoon, they started reading names...took them four hours...by the time they were done, it was dark and the whole area was lit up with candles and spot lights...It was very touching.
