2nd ANNUAL 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials

75 USA Communities Unite on Sunday, September 11, 2022

“To Do Something Together, To Do Something in Memory, and To Never Forget”

September 11th is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. On September 11, 2022, Global Youth Justice, Inc. and our co-partner Federal Agency AmeriCorps 9/11 Day of National Service, will launch the 2nd year, and second phase of the 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials, that are led by 75 communities across America who volunteered to hold public memorials led by adults and youth.  Hundreds of adults and youth in these 75 communities are involved in just the planning of these memorials, with each in memory of 65 different victims, responders, and heroes who died on 9/11/01, or after from injuries, diseases, and other causes.

These 75 communities, and the 100’s of civic-minded volunteer adults and youth organizers, are making it possible for thousands of adults and youth on September 11, 2022, to honor our nation’s promise to NEVER FORGET the victims, responders, and heroes who lost their lives as a result of the deadliest terrorist attack in history.  On September 11, 2022, we especially remember the families still grieving over the loss of a loved one(s) on and after 9/11/01, as a result of that tragic day.  From the hundreds of volunteer organizers, to thousands gathering at these 75 public memorials, the 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials is our contribution to the promise that the Victims, Heroes, and Responders will Never be Forgotten.

On September 11, 2001, 2,977 men, women, and children, were killed in a tragedy involving four hijacked planes and terrorist crimes in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.  They included victims, as well as responders and heroes who gave their lives trying to save as many as possible. Also remembered are six victims from the February 26, 1993, World Trade Center bombing, and 4,313 more who died from 9/11-related illnesses, suicides, and injuries from the day after September 11, 2001 to March 31, 2022.

The second 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on September 11, 2022, extends beyond those honored in the first, from everyone who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, to include nearly 5,000 more who lost their lives after September 11, 2001. As a result of Federal law and other concerns, the Federal government will not release the names of those who died following September 11, 2001, only the monthly death totals. However, more than twenty 9/11-related organizations are assisting Global Youth Justice, and we have identified nearly 1,000 to be remembered by name.

Instead of 75 communities reading thousands of names at each site, this project for the first time in America uniquely divides the names among them, thus far assigning each some 65 9/11 victims and heroes who lost their lives, and thus these local memorials are in their memory. Beyond saying the names, each community is taking a deeper, more personal approach, using websites provided by Global Youth Justice, Inc. to share multiple details about each victim, of which the names of family members names are the most important.  All 75 memorial sites have 65 different names of the victims, heroes, and responders, except for the eight children who tragically lost their lives on that horrific day, who are being remembered at all 75 memorials.

When the terrorists crashed the hijacked planes into New York City’s Twin Towers on that infamous September 11, the flames caused the steel to melt in both towers at ground zero, leaving no human remains for most families to bury, as was the case with Flight 93 in Pennsylvania and the Pentagon. Therefore, it is important to remember those lost by not only reading their names, but sharing where they are remembered in the North or South Pool at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City and the number of the panel on which their names are etched in bronze, and reciting any additional matters of significance, such as family member names. For many, a picture to print out and hold up is available, for others, only a name.

Sites should find a free public location to hold the 9/11 Day Flag of Honor Memorial and recruit volunteers of all ages to take part in the remembrance on Sunday, September 11, 2022. Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps will provide two (2) free 5-foot 9/11 Day Flags of Honor to be raised on a flagpole, hand pole, or otherwise displayed. Global Youth Justice, Inc. also provides the 75 official sites their assigned names, and provides website links to three Memorial websites, to find 5 to 15 personal details to be read for each of the 9/11 Day victims and heroes to be honored.

This will be the largest National Multi-Site Coordinated 9/11 Day Project in America in Remembrance of the 21st Anniversary of that Tragic Day on September 11th, 2022, and will involve both Youth Volunteers and Youth involved with the Juvenile Justice System – both of whom were not born by September 11th, 2001.  Global Youth Justice, Inc. CEO Scott Peterson designed the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials Project in 2020, with a special focus on involving a wide range of youth.

This new memorial was selected to launch as 1 of only 5 new Federal Projects on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day on September 11, 2021.  In 2022, the 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials adds 20 Demonstration Sites, which includes a 2-Day Community Service-Learning Approach, where volunteer youth and justice system involved youth attend a 4-hour 9/11 Day interactive learning project, followed by a 2nd day where they participate on September 11, 2022 in the 2nd Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials.

In Following the 2nd 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on September 11th, 2022, many of these (75) Communities will be undertaking Service Projects such as Planting Trees, Donating Blood, and more.

ENROLLMENT INFORMATION 2022

OPEN UNTIL 8/20/2022

Less than 10 Minutes to Complete

Approval of the 75 Official Sites is by Volunteer Enrollment, and Not Applying, as Global Youth Justice, Inc. supports those who Volunteer first, to be in these high profile roles, even if they never have organized a memorial before. To become an Official Site for the 2nd Annual 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials 2022, read the Instructions and Tips 2022 document below, and submit the enrollment form, and then we will respond with your sites approval up until 75 sites are enrolled. After 75 sites are filled, we will continue to send flags and materials until we run out, like in our 1st year in 2021.

Once you are enrolled and accepted to become an Official Site, Global Youth Justice, Inc. will send you both an email and a package with an official letter of approval as well as helpful documents listed in the Final Steps document linked below. In the 1st Year, the 60 official sites survey reported the memorials were approximately 90 minutes. Some of the memorials included 25 youth and adults, and each read 2 names in memory, and each name was followed by 5 to 15more personal things about each of the names, as in the 1st year in 2021, each of the 60 sites was assigned 50 of the 2,983 who died on 9/11/01, including 6 from 2/26/93 world trade center bombing.

Other Memorials in 2021, included 100 adults and youth reading the name and 5-15 personal things about each, and even holding up photos. And, other sites in 2021, had 50 adults and youth read names and 5-15 things, but there were 300 attendees at the memorial at an Elementary School, and 800+ at a Public Parade for their 50 to be Honored in Memory. See the 300+ Photos below from the 1st year in 2021, for ideas. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding the 2nd Annual 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials 2022.
