Kirkland Remembers 9/11

  [scrollGallery id=173]

In the early morning hours of September 11, 2011, a group of about 15 anonymous local volunteers planted thousands of American flags around Kirkland as a reminder of the events which changed our lives a decade ago.

A small group of local community members meet each year on September 11th in the early morning. They dawn safety vests and canvass the city planting American flags before the sun rises. It truly is one of those traditions which makes Kirkland feel like a small town again.

On this day, the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on our nation, we honor those who have fallen, and we give our sincere gratitude to the policemen, firemen, emergency responders, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and Airmen who make it their duty to serve and protect us every day.
