Soaring to New Heights
5th Annual 'Freedom Flight 9/11 and Beyond' Kiting Tribute
Remembering The Lost and Those Left Behind
On Sunday, September 9th 2007 from 12-4 PM, the City of Long Beach, New York by Riverside on the beach, will again play host to a unique event for unity, hope, and healing. This solemn occasion is also a celebration of life and caring for one another.
The activities feature: Wind Spirit, an impressive, award-winning kiting display that will undulate along the shoreline while kite masters fly giant, breathtaking kites; professional Sand Sculptor Matt Long will demonstrate his remarkable skill and vision; a Memory Book listing the names of all who perished on that fateful day will be on view; draw on the Mural of Hope which encourages self-expression, Parrots for Peace, Baby and Merlin will bring wonder and delight to children, as well as adults. Throughout the afternoon, In Concert gives voice to a talented array of local singers and bands. Anyone wishing take part in the special 2:45 PM Tribute will be given a flag to plant in the Memorial Sand Garden, and over 100 kites are made available to families to fly.
Freedom Flight 9/11 is a grassroots collaborative effort of a small group of friends believing that the flying of kites symbolizes the universal dream of freedom, and is a special way to recognize our unsung heroes, ordinary people who came together and did the extraordinary: Fireman, Police, EMS, 9/11 Operating Engineers, Laborers, Teamsters, Construction Workers, Search & Rescue Crews and animals. Many of the Responders who survived have now been forgotten or abandoned.
