Tiny American flags, 2,977 of them, marched across the grass at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Friday, one for each person who lost their lives in the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
The flags end in a point beneath a twisted piece of metal--a portion of a steel beam that once helped support the World Trade Center.
A ceremony was held during the noon hour to officially receive the beam. Don Addy, president of the National Homeland Defense Foundation, representatives of Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, and College Republicans all participated.
The memorial will be on display at the School of Science and Engineering room A311 until the beginning of November.
