What is the 9/11 Flag of Honor?

The 9/11 Flag of Honor was created by the Flag of Heroes project. The 9/11 Flag of Honor contains the names of all those who perished in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, United flights 175 and 93 and American flights 11 and 77. The 9/11 Flag of Honor gives the victims’ families, friends, and all of America and the world, a symbol that will forever memorialize the 2,983 men, women and children lost on September 11, 2001 (2,977) and February 26, 1993 (6). 

The 9/11 Flag of Honor is sold by the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, with all proceeds benefitting the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.  For this 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on September 11, 2021 – Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps have purchased 100 9/11 Flags to give free to the 1st 100 Communities and Tribes registering to participate in the 1st Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021.

What is the 1st 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on September 11?

On September 11th, adults and youth from 100 Communities and Tribes will gather at a public area (such as city/town hall, courtroom, school auditorium, firehouse, special location, or similar location).  These adults and youth will participate in an approximate 90-minute 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial.

This 1st 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial is comprised of 3 primary components to include: (1) Opening Remarks from several adults and youth, which relate to what 9/11 Day is about, what this ceremony is about, and related information; (2) 50 of the 2,983 victim’s names are read individually aloud, along with short biographical information about each one at a time; and (3) Closing Remarks are made to include things such as a final moment of silence, thank participants, group photo, and other information deemed appropriate by organizers and officials.

AGENDA EXAMPLE

(Approximately 90 Minutes)

9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial

Saturday, September 11, 2021

BEGIN

Opening (20-30 Minutes)

Guest Speakers to include adults and youth will share information about 9/11 Day of National Service (also called Patriot Day), what the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials is about, discuss what will take place, include remarks by any family and friends of 9/11 Day Victims, invite participants to share anything, and each of the 100 communities and tribes participating can modify and adapt this, as they see fit.

“We Will Never Forget You” (50 Minutes)

Adults and Youth at the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021 will split up and read 50 of the 2,983 victim’s names aloud, along with short biographical information about each one at a time.  Global Youth Justice, Inc. will assign 50 names specific to each of the 100 communities and tribes registered to participate, and with those names, communities and tribes log on the 9/11 Memorial and Museum Website and get a 1-page bio and photo on each, to read more personal information about each of the souls lost that day – and not just their name.

Closing (10 Minutes)

Moment of Silence, Final Remarks from any Special Guests and Participants (especially if any family or friends of any of the victims are in attendance) and many of the 100 Communities and Tribes are planning to do something optional after, such as an activity relating to Volunteering and Serving their community.

Where do we get the 9/11 Flag of Honor?

Each of the 100 Official 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial Locations on September 11, 2021 will get a FREE 9/11 Flag of Honor that is registered to their geographical location, and paid for by Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps Federal 9/11 Day of National Service Program.  Each of the 100 9/11 Flags of Honor has been numbered, registered, and placed on a different location of the 9/11 Memorial in New York City – and photographed.  Approved applicants will get the 9/11 Flag of Honor, Photograph of their Flag on the 9/11 Memorial, and the Registration Certificate – so they can use them during the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11th

And, we expect many communities and tribes to frame these after the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial is over, and hang them in a public location – such as a Firehouse or City Hall, etc.  Communities and Tribes are encouraged to participate annually in the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial – and they can hang their 9/11 Flag of Honor in different, and special locations each year.  The 9/11 Flag of Honor will be mailed to each of the 100 communities and tribes 45 days before the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021. 

During the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on September 11, 2021 – the 100 Communities and Tribes can hang the 9/11 Flag of Honor on a Flag Pole or other location, and they may also pass the 9/11 Flag of Honor from person to person – so the individual reading the name and short biographical information, is holding the 9/11 Flag of Honor when reading the information.

Who is Eligible to Lead a 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial?

Public and Private Organizations, Agencies, Departments, Clubs, Civic Organizations, Fraternal Organizations, Youth Groups, Religious Organizations, Volunteer Groups, Schools, Police, Probation, Youth Clubs, Nonprofits, Businesses, and any other entity that elects to lead a 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021.  Official and Unofficial entities are also encouraged to apply – and groups of three or more adults, youth or adults/youth may register to Lead a 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021.

Where are the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials?

The 100+ Locations of the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials will take place in communities, tribes, territories, and other locations.  On August 1, 2021 – Global Youth Justice, Inc. will release all of the locations registered thus far, so that adults and youth not leading a 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial can participate.  Thirty (30) of the 100 Locations are already selected prior to the public release of this opportunity, as AmeriCorps 9/11 Day of National Service and Global Youth Justice, Inc. have awarded 9/11 Day Project Grants for larger 9/11 Projects on September 11, 2021. 

When is the 1st Inaugural Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial?

Saturday, September 11, 2021, and four (4) suggested times are below.  And, this year (2021) is the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day of National Service.  Make this an Annual Tradition in your Community or Tribe, and Register below to Join with us in Year 1.

How Long is a 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial?

Five (5) Test Sites for the new 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials have taken place in different locations in USA, and the average time for a 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial is 90-Minutes.

What Time(s) can the 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials take Place?

9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorials on September 11th can begin at any one of the four primary times listed below.  The four times listed below are the hour, minute, and second, when the attacks took place in New York City (World Trade Center 2-Towers), Pennsylvania (Flight 93), and Virginia (The Pentagon).  These times are Eastern Standard Time, as all four attacks took place in this time zone.  It is reasonable to adjust times for your time zone, so that adults and youth requiring public transportation, are able to participate.  If another time is “special” to a family or friend of a 9/11 Victim, please adjust as you deem appropriate.

1st Time — North Tower – New York City

8:46:40 am EST: Flight 11 crashes into the north face of the North Tower (1 WTC) of the World Trade Center, between floors 93 and 99.

2nd Time — South Tower – New York City

9:02:57 am EST: Flight 175 crashes into the south face of the South Tower (2 WTC) of the World Trade Center, between floors 77 and 85. Parts of the plane, including the starboard engine, leave the building from its east and north sides, falling to the ground six blocks away.

3rd Time — The Pentagon – Virginia

9:37:46 am EST: Flight 77 crashes into the western side of The Pentagon and starts a violent fire.

4th Time — Flight 93 – Pennsylvania

10:03:11 am EST: Flight 93 is crashed by its hijackers as a result of fighting in the cockpit 80 miles (129 km) southeast of Pittsburgh in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.  Later reports indicate that passengers had learned about the World Trade Center and Pentagon crashes and were resisting the hijackers. The 9/11 Commission believed that Flight 93’s target was either the United States Capitol building or the White House in Washington, D.C.

Supplies Needed?

Only Three (3) things are needed, and 2 are provided by Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps, to include the FREE Official 9/11 Flag of Honor, and the fifty (50) assigned names from the list of 2,983 names of men, women, and children, who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 (2,977) and February 26, 1993 (6).  The third thing needed, is 50 sheets of paper and a printer – and the 100 Communities and Tribes registered, will provide this.

The Official 9/11 Flag of Honor, 50 Names of Souls Lost on 9/11 Day, and Short 1-Page Bio on each of the 50 Souls Lost on 9/11 Day is all that is need – in addition to Volunteer Adult and You to Participate.  Each of the 100 Communities and Tribes participating will get a Free 9/11 Flag of Honor that has been placed on the 9/11 Memorial and Registered to their Community, as Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps are sponsoring these.  Global Youth Justice, Inc. will provide each of the 100 Communities and Tribes with 50 assigned names from the list of 2,983 souls lost on 9/11 Day.  These names are specific to each of the 100 communities and tribes, so it is essential that no one does not follow through with this, and if a problem arises, please notify us, as 10 communities have agreed to serve as back-up for taking on more names.

Each of the 100 Communities and Tribes registered to participate in the 1st Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial will log on to the Website of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, and individually type in each of the 50 names they have been assigned, and print out a 1-page short bio and photo of each person – this took approximately 30 minutes and 50 sheets of paper in 5-Trial Test Runs.  On September 11th, these pages will be handed out to adult and youth participants, so they can read the name, and short biographical information – such as where they worked, if they had children, their hobbies, where they were on 9/11 Day, and where their name is engraved in bronze on the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The 100 FREE 9/11 Flags of Honor will fairly be distributed to the 1st 100 Applicants who submit a registration form, and meet the basic, and fair requirements.  All applications will be emailed to 911Day@GlobalYouthJustice.org, and we will fairly distribute the 9/11 Flags of Honor based on when the email arrived.  When the 100 FREE Flags are distributed, we will post this on our Global Youth Justice Website – but others can still participate – they will just have to purchase their own 9/11 Flag of Honor (about $50 with shipping and handling) and those Flags have not been placed on the 9/11 Memorial and photographed, as Global Youth Justice, Inc. staff and volunteers did this – to make the 100 9/11 Flags of Honor even more special and sacred for the 1st Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021.

How Many Participants are Needed?

Each of the 100 Communities and Tribes will be assigned fifty (50) names of men, women, and children who died on September 11th, 2021 (2,977) and February 26, 1993 (6).  The 100 Communities and Tribes can have 25 adults and youth and each read 2 of the 50 names and bio information.  It can be fifty (50) participants, and each read 1 name and bio information.  It can be ten (10) participants and each read five (5) names and bio information.  Or, you can have 100 adult and youth participants, and you can email 911Day@GlobalYouthJustice.org for more names, and we will provide them up until 24 hours before September 11, 2021. 

And, the 100 Communities and Tribes can log on to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum Website, and sort the 2,983 names by state – and pick other names in your state.  And, if any participants are family and/or friends of any of the 2,983 victims, we encourage all sites to include these names.

Press and News Coverage

Global Youth Justice, Inc. will provide the 100 Communities and Tribes with example and template press releases specific to this 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial, and additional 9/11 Day of National Service Press Information, specific to 9/11 Day available from AmeriCorps.  We encourage local communities and tribes to undertake press and news outreach to television, newspapers, radio, on-line news, and other public relations activities.

9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial Committee

We encourage the 100 Communities and Tribes participating in the 1st Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021 to establish a 9/11 Day Committee comprised of adults and youth, and elected and public officials – and first responders.  While it is not necessary, it does further promote involvement, and other ideas for this special event.   While this is not an elaborate ceremony or memorial – it is a special, sacred, and special – Never Forget the Tragic Events of September 11, 2001 and we will Never Forget the Men, Women, and Children who lost their precious lives that Tragic Day.

Support

Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps will be providing 100 Free 9/11 Day Flags of Honor, Examples of Press Releases, Organizing Information, Free 9/11 Day 20-Year Logos, Social Media Example Posts, Technical Support, Networking, Sharing Newsletters on this Project, Highlighting the 100 Lead 9/11 Flag of Honor Sites, Registering their Project, and Widely Promoting the 100 Communities and Tribes participating in this 1st Annual 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021.

Family and Friends of that Tragic Day in America on September 11, 2001.

Global Youth Justice, Inc. and AmeriCorps encourage involvement and leadership by Family and Friends of the nearly 3,000 souls lost on September 11, 2001.  If all 100 of the Free 9/11 Day Flags of Honor are already given out to registrants, before Family and Friends of 9/11 Day Victims applied – please contact Global Youth Justice below, and we will make sure you get a FREE 9/11 Day Flag of Honor for this 1st 9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Memorial on September 11, 2021.  This also applies to families and friends of thousands more souls who died after September 11, 2001 – from injuries sustained that day, diseases stemming from that day, and other related causes of death.  We also encourage the many Heroes, First Responders, and so many others who were involved in a wide range of areas that day, and for years after – including still now.

GOAL of 9/11 DAY of NATIONAL SERVICE

In Observance of the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks, 9/11 Day of National Service will Transform the Anniversary of 9/11 into a Day of Unity and “Good Deeds” to help those most in need.  The Goal of 9/11 Day of National Service is to Mobilize Volunteer Youth and Adults in America, and around the Globe, to perform “100 Million Good Deeds” in Remembrance and Tribute for the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day. AmeriCorps is the Federal Agency assigned to Lead 9/11 Day of National Service, and Global Youth Justice, Inc. is a new 3-Year AmeriCorps Grantee to Lead 9/11 Day of National Service activities beginning in 2021.

GLOBAL YOUTH JUSTICE, INC. and 9/11 DAY of NATIONAL SERVICE

Global Youth Justice, Inc. has been awarded a competitive three (3) year federal grant from AmeriCorps for purposes of being a National Partner of 9/11 Day of National Service, beginning in 2021, with the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day of National Service on September 11, 2021. Global Youth Justice, Inc. is also considerably subsidizing this 9/11 Day Project for Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs.

The Global Youth Justice Network comprises 1800+ Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs in Communities, Tribes, and Schools — in 47 USA States, 25+ Tribes, District of Columbia, 11 Countries, and 1 Dual-Island Nation.  These Youth-Led and Volunteer-Driven Diversion Programs are the most replicated local juvenile justice program in America, since the establishment of the 1st Juvenile Court in 1899 in Illinois, USA.

And, since they are volunteer-driven, they are now already a Top 5 youth service opportunity for teens in America, and they are the #1 essential youth service opportunity in America.  And, since juvenile crimes occur daily all over America, they provide year-round continual youth service opportunities – instead of being only episodic, and therefore, these diversion programs are highly regarded for their civic, service, rule of law, and other youth development benefits, beyond their primary purpose – to divert youthful offenders from the justice system.

And, given much needed justice reform efforts in America, our unique Volunteer-Driven Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs are experiencing an even greater surge in their establishment and expansion.
