An empty field was converted into to a memorial for the victims of the September 11, 2001, terror attack with 2,977 American flags planted in rows, each fluttering in the breeze on a sunny late summer day.

One woman left flowers by one of the flags and a group of onlookers wrote a note to victims they’d known, including a pregnant woman.
“We miss you every day. EVERY DAY,” the note read.
Tony Massa lived in New Jersey on that horrific day 20 years ago. He and his wife, Pam, took pictures of the flags.
Pam said she still feels the pain on every anniversary of the attack by radical Islamic terrorists.
“It never goes away,” Pam said.
