THE HEALING FIELDS





September 11, 2001 will be a day that we will never forget, we will never forget where we were at, what we were doing when we heard the news.......tragedy and loss in our great nation. In Sandy, Utah they have a place called 'The Healing Fields" each year on 9/11 they put out a flag in honor of every single person that was killed by terrorists on that fateful day. Each flag has printed on it the names of all those who lost their lives. They also have a flag from the country, where each person was from. It is truly an amazing site. There is also a section of flags representing those from Utah who have lost their lives fighting the war on terrorism. Through-out the day they have Servicemen and women singing patriotic songs, policeman, fireman, firetrucks, army trucks etc. If you live near by, take the opportunity to go, if you don't, find out if your community does anything similar to this. We are so proud to be Americans, we are so blessed to live in this beautiful nation, today is a day that we will forever remember not only for the tragedy that happened on this day, but for the strength and courage we have as Americans!
Love, The Tipsy Girls
