Lubbock Remembers 9/11

If you take the South Loop 289 on your way to work you may have noticed hundreds of American flags out at Kastman Park.

There are one thousand flags out here at Kastman Park. Each one was posted to honor those who lost their lives on that tragic day, and to honor first responders who put their lives on the line.

The "American Tribute" is posted every year since the 9/11 attacks. It is the sixth anniversary of that significant day. The governor has ordered flags to be flown at half staff at state buildings on Tuesday in observance of 9/11. He's also encouraging Texans to fly their flags at half staff.

 Each flag will be purchased for 25 dollars each, with proceeds benefiting the ASB Nursing Scholarship Endowment Fund. The flags will remain on display through Wednesday. 

Lubbock County also paid tribute to first responders and 9/11 victims with a ceremony at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday at the Lubbock County Courthouse. Texas Tech also got involved. At 9:11 a.m. Tuesday, the university honored 9/11 victims with a moment of silence, followed by the playing of taps.
