Artist's Description

Featured in Just for You Dedications Group, 8-Jul-2013

Top Ten, third place in Dedication to the Red, White and Blue Challenge in Just for You Dedications Group, 6-Jul-2013

taken at Madame Trussauds in NYC, Sept 2, 2012. This is a re-creation of the iconic photograph taken by a Bergen Record Photographer.

At the time of 9/11/2001 I had a part time 2nd job delivering the Passaic County Herald News and the Bergen Record in the very early morning hours to several towns in my Northeastern NJ area. It was a Bergen Record photographer who took this photo. I was one of the first people to first see this photo on the cover of our newspaper – and we all were given stickers of it. Many of my customers worked in NYC and unfortunately some of them were casualties of the WTC attacks. Living only 20 minutes from NYC we are called the Metropolitan NJ area and many people commute to NYC every day for work. I stood that day at the last mountain, Eagle Rock Lookout, and saw the smoke billowing into the sky from the towers.

It was amazing to see the re-creation of this raising of the flag found in the midst of the rubble at Ground Zero. this is a slightly different POV than the original photo, and it is amazing to see it in 3D. what a marvelous tribute.

“highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth”. Abraham Lincoln

Dedicated to the flag that we all hold so dear here in the USA. There is never a time I do not see the flag that I do not feel pride and joy that I live in the USA. In spite of the mistakes and failures of the past, the shame of some of the treatment of some peoples such as the African Americans and the Native Americans, USA to me is still the land of the free and opportunity and I would not want to live anywhere else. I am thankful I live in the USA and thankful for the pride and determination we all have to strive for better, to overcome adversity and to rise out of the ashes.
