“God bless America, long may she live” by louannwarren

“God bless America, long may she live”

Today is the 17th anniversary of four coordinated terrorist attacks against the United States by the Islamic extremist group al-Queda. It was a day that changed America, honestly one that we will never forget. This photo of modern artist Jasper John’s flag is in the modern art gallery at Crystal Bridges Museum. Johns had a dream in 1954 to paint a large American flag and woke up the next morning and gathered the materials to do just that. He had served in the U. S. Army two years prior to painting this. He said he planned to paint “easily recognizable, everyday items”, the flag is the painting he is best known for. I thought it would be a good photo for this solemn day for our country.
Perfect tribute

One of those ‘what were you doing when?’ moments, like the Kennedy assassination, the fallmofnthe Berlin Wall, Princess Dianna’s death; 9/11 will echo through the hearts and memories of all Westerners for ever. RIP all who perished on that day, and the subsequent days because of it.

I can't quite believe it & am rather ashamed that I have never heard one mention today on the news of the anniversary of this momentous day. Who could forget it....a world changing moment but people have short memories sadly! The best tribute! Trouble is I suppose we all have our win 9/11 these days, so many terror moments!

This is an excellent tribute and symbol to commemorate such a tragic day- especially since so many took to flying the flag in the aftermath. Well done Lou Ann!

She always talks about how kind and supportive everyone was to her when they found out she was American.
