9/11 Day Flag of Honor Across America Memorials

Next: 3rd Annual 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on Monday, September 11, 2023.

The 1st Year Launch in 2021, and 2nd Year on 9/11/22, were the Largest 9/11 DAY National Multi-Site Projects in America, and is designed to scale even larger in the 3rd Year in 2023, when site enrollment climbs across the USA to 100 Memorials in America

Global Youth Justice, Inc. had the Inaugural Launch of the 1st Annual 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials was on September 11, 2021, and it was designed to commemorate the unique needs of the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 DAY, and was selected the year prior in 2020, as one of only five (5) Federal 9/11 Day Projects to launch on the special 20th Anniversary of that tragic day. So, the design of this new Type of Memorial had programmatic elements which incorporate children, youth, and young adults, not yet born 20 years ago and those too young to remember. This new 9/11 DAY Memorial is volunteer-driven, youth and adult co-led, and instead of saying 2,983 names at one memorial, each memorial is held in memory and honor of 50-65 victims and heroes. And, instead of only saying a name, 5-10 personal things are shared about each.

USA ENROLLMENT OPENS

December 1, 2022

3rd Annual

9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The 9/11 Day Flag of Honor Across America Memorials are held annually all locally throughout the USA on Patriot Day, a National Day of Service and Remembrance.

100’s of civic-minded volunteer adults and youth organizers, are making it possible for thousands and thousands adults and youth, on September 11, 2023, 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, 2023, 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 100 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.

Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001 and Thousands More Lives Lost

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.

In 2022, for the second year, the 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials 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.

Memorial Designed Differently than Saying the Name Only.

Instead of 100 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 100 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 100 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 100 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 with audio to hold the 9/11 Day Flag of Honor Memorial and recruit volunteers of all ages and background to take part in the remembrance on MONDAY, September 11, 2023. Global Youth Justice, Inc. provides 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 100 official sites their assigned 50 names, and provides website links to three Memorial websites, where for each of 50 different names (except all sites have the 8 children) to find a minimum requires 5 to 10 personal details to be read for each of the 9/11 Day victims and heroes to be honored.

2020 New September 11 Human Memorial Designed in March, and in June selected as 1 of 5 to launch on 20th in 2021, and all 60 slots filled that year, despite COVID. This was 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. Global Youth Justice, Inc. CEO Scott Peterson designed the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials Project in March, 2020, before the 19th Anniversary of 9/11 DAY that September 11, to be launched the following year on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day on September 11, 2021. The Memorial Design includes scaling, and a special focus on involving children, youth, and young people not born by September 11, 2001.

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, and expanded even further in 2022 on multiple levels.  In 2023, the 3rd Annual 9/11 DAY Flag of Honor Across America Memorials launches the 2023-2026

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
