September 11th at KOHS

As they did last year (<~~click here to see last year's photos), many students at Austen and Parker's high school set up this display in remembrance of all those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. There are 2,976 flags on the huge corner of the campus. It's a stunning display.

The school's Young Conservatives Club and some of the band members put these flags out Thursday night. This afternoon, we could see the band members and color guard preparing to leave for their performances at tonight's football game.

ADDITION: Here are 3 news videos about the KOHS display of flags:

The last one was taken from a helicopter, I think. (Doesn't sound like an airplane.) There's no narrative. You have to get to the point at which there are about 2:50 minutes remaining before it zeroes in on the kids' 9/11 memorial. The first part shows the entire school and its surroundings.
