I was able to get to Veterans Park in McHenry for the 9-11 Observance. this morning. There was a good-sized crowd, probably about 150 counting fire and police personnel. I brought along my police American flag. this is the one where the red has been removed so just blue and white stripes and one big blue stripe. I figured this was a good way to thank our police.
The mayor spoke first and then we had a flag that had flown at NYFD Station #10 across from where the World Trade Center stood which was raised to the top of the pole and then lowered to half mast. I do not believe it was the flag that was flying there that day, however.
Then, the McHenry High School chorus sang the "Star-Spangled Banner."
All seven of my blogs today are on 9-11.
