Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), left, stitches on the official 9/11 National flag while Jeff Parness, founder and chairman of the New York Says Thank You Foundation and his son, Josh, look on. The flag was at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, July 14, 2011. This flag was flying south of the World Trade Center in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001, and now it is making its way around the country and is being stitched back together by Americans. When it is completed, it will hang in the official Sept. 11 memorial in New York City. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
