September 11th 2011 marked the 10 year anniversary of the attacks on our country. Our exclusive 9/11 memorial flag has been designed to commemorate all of the Americans that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. This single sided 3x5 nylon flag will only be available for a short time so hurry and get yours.
September 11, 2001 marked one of the most important events in American history. We lost over 2,700 lives on that day, including 343 firefighters, 60 police officers and civilians from 70 different countries. As a country though, we have picked ourselves up and risen again. Since then, many things have changed for our country, but one thing has remained the same: America's spirit to continue on. We have been the worldwide leader in the war against terrorism, freeing countless people and many countries from the oppressive rule of unjust leaders. We are once again the world's beacon of freedom and hope.
Many families and friends of victims have set up memorial funds and projects to give back to their communities and change the world in honor of their loved ones' lives. Examples include:
- Beyond the 11th
- The Peter M. Goodrich Memorial Foundation
- Our Voices Together
- September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows
- Heroic Choices (originally the Todd M. Beamer Foundation)
- Tuesday's Children
- 9-11 Garden of Reflection
- LeRoy Homer Foundation
- The Raoul Wallenberg Award was given to New York City in 2001 "For all of its citizens who searched for the missing, cared for the injured, gave comfort to loved ones of the missing or lost, and provided sustenance and encouragement to those who searched through the rubble at Ground Zero."
- Newark International Airport was renamed "Newark Liberty International Airport".
