The September 11 memorial

pepperdine 9/11 memorial

They went up over the weekend at along PCH at Pepperdine and though it's a stunning display, it's today that they resonate the most. One flag for every life lost in the September 11 attacks.

Ryan Sawtelle came up with the idea and after a year and a half of planning, he and a few friends raised the flags for the first time in 2008. On September 10, just the lawn. On September 11, with no warning, all those flags.

This year, the annual Ride to the Flags takes place on September 14. Another of Ryan's ideas. Check the site for specifics.
