On September 11, 2001, in New York City the World Trade Center (WTC) was attacked by terrorists. Flight 11 and flight 175 were hijacked and flown into the twin towers. At ground zero, amid all of the chaos, three New York City firefighters raised the American flag as a symbol of freedom. At that moment, Record photographer Thomas E. Franklin captured the unforgettable image that marked
the first step for Americans to begin to heal.

Those who perished in 9/11 will never be forgotten.
This website is dedicated to their memory.
