Thirteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, two planes purposefully flew into the World Trade Center (Twin Towers), in New York City. Nearly 3,000 people perished in this horrifying event. On this day, in Booker High School’s courtyard, the entire school population, all 100 staff and 1200 students alike, gathered to say the Pledge of Allegiance in unison and watch a large American flag be unfolded from the roof of building 4. The morning light was still entering into the mandarin-colored sky as the flag was unveiled, providing onlookers with a breathtaking glance at a sunlit American flag.

See Brandon Thomas, a Booker High Senior’s, photo on ABC7 news http://m.mysuncoast.com/mobile/news/local/booker-high-marks-with-giant-flag/article_4ab0bd7a-39bc-11e4-8396-0017a43b2370.html

Thomas’ photo was picked up by ABC7 and shared on television by Good Morning America. At this moment it is ABC’s most liked post on their Facebook page.
