Patriot Day personified

In honor of the many people who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America, Gil Hopson Drive inside Murray's Central Park was transformed into the Avenue of Flags on Wednesday's 18th anniversary of that tragic day. Along with remembering the nearly 3,000 people who died, the day is also known as Patriot Day, recognizing the many acts of bravery that were exhibited that day, many of which came from people, from first responders to ordinary citizens, who did not survive but whose acts allowed others to live.
