Flags Wave in Remembrance of 9-11 at Kastman Park

Moments of silence were observed across the nation on Saturday, taking just a minute to remember the day that America was changed forever, and the lives that were lost at the same time.

On Saturday night, 1,000 flags wave in remembrance of those lives lost three years ago in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. Each flag represents three people that were killed on September 11, 2001.

Early Saturday, First Responders were recognized again at a groundbreaking for a Public Service Memorial at Jack Stevens Park. The memorial will honor all First Responders which include police officers, firefighters, sheriff's deputies, state troopers, and emergency medical personnel.

For people like Jina Fowler, whose husband was killed in the line of duty in 1992, the memorial is a reminder of the sacrifices First Responders make everyday.

"I'd like for people to be aware, not necessarily because it's my husband, but everybody and just be aware of what they do," says Jina Fowler.

American State Bank has already donated $25,000 toward the memorial, and now, there is a way you can help with the building of this memorial. You can purchase and dedicate a brick to any First Responder that you know.

It costs $50 for a small brick and $90 for a large one. Now, if you would like to purchase one of the flags waving at Kastman Park, they will be on sale for $25 for three more days after Saturday night at the gazebo in Kastman Park. The money made from flag sales will go toward nursing scholarships.
