National School Boards Association (NSBA) displays The National 9/11 Flag

The last citizens to fold the flag at its last official stop (NSBA) on the way to the National 9/11 Museum in New York City were those in public service for education, children and our future.

"NSBA is honored to display The National 9/11 Flag in support of the New York Says Thank You Foundation and the Foundation’s service-learning division, The 9/12 Generation Project.

In the days following September 11, 2001, the remnants of this 30-foot American flag hung, tattered and torn, across from Ground Zero for the entire world to see. Stitched back together seven years later by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas, the National Flag is a living testament to the resilience and compassion

of the American people; and has inspired millions of Americans, deepened our sense of citizenship and national pride, and bolstered the spirit of volunteerism on the 9/11 Anniversary and year-round.

The National 9/11 Flag is scheduled to become a featured artifact in the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum currently being built at the World Trade Center.

The 9/12 Generation Project is a ten-year, national service-learning initiative designed to engage children in acts of citizenship and volunteer spirit akin to those that united our Nation on September 12, 2001 — 9/12."
