As is tradition, 1,300 American flags are on display at Sandy City Hall to mark the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, and rural Pennsylvania.

The Utah Healing Field is open to the public, though there was no commemorative service held this year and the flags are spaced farther apart than in years past to accommodate social distancing.

The flags will be in place until Monday.

Among those who paid tribute Friday were families with children in tow and Tim Clayson, a chaplain and major with the Utah National Guard. He took a knee and thought about his son deployed in Afghanistan.
