My Visit To The West Michigan Healing Field At Cannonsburg
Well, the tribute display closes down tonight. I visited it with a friend yesterday and we were both taken back a bit. When you park and walk toward it it really is quite overwhelming to see 3200 full size flags representing the 3200 people lost in 9/11. Each flag had a tag that contained a little bit about what the person it represents was all about.
The pictures that the children drew with messages of thanks or crayon pictures that expressed what the little ones could not put into words. The children's drawing were one of my favorite parts of the display. Do yourself a favor and see this before it leaves the area (3pm Tuesday September 13, 2011) . Everyone who called me on the request line told me I HAD to see it in person because the photos on Facebook and Twitter didn't do it justice. They were right!
