As I walked over the hill and my vision filled with the flags placed in tribute to those who died on 9/11, ten years ago, I couldn't help but utter, "Oh dear God".
To try to comprehend the number of those sacrificed had been difficult. To see it visually counted out with individual flags was heart-breaking.
A horizon of red, white, and blue blanketed the hill.
On each flag post, there was a label affixed showing a photo of the deceased, where they died, age, and occupation. We thank St. Louis resident Rick Randall for creating this ephemeral memorial for a national tragedy that we can never forget.
