Monday we made a special trip to Malibu to see the Wave of Flags on Pepperdine’s front lawn.
I first heard about this 9/11 memorial here, on Sunday afternoon. One of the many reasons I love keeping up with blogs.
I don’t know why I hadn’t heard about this anywhere else. The only news article I could find on it was this little tiny LA Times blog.
Sounds like it was only up for a week (which means it is probably gone by now), and intended to honor the 3000 dead on 9/11.
When we went Monday (on the way to work) there were hardly any people there.
It was just amazing to walk through. The flags were set up in a kind of L shape, so there wasn’t really anyway to see all of them at once.
The wind was perfect that time of day, and all the flags were very much on display.
I am so so grateful I was able to go take pictures and that I learned about this early enough. It was really amazing to be there, walking through, reflecting. Totally aside from any politics of the attack or the war or anything.
Andrew was driving me to work that day (car at the mechanic), and it was his idea to stop by after work (1130p) to see how the flags were lit at night.
