CEDAR GROVE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) —A New Jersey school is planning a special tribute for the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Starting Sept. 9, students will begin placing flags on the lawn outside Cedar Grove High School to honor the victims of 9/11.
The “Cedar Grove Waves” project will feature 2,977 flags — one for each victim.
“There’s never a shortage of ways to honor people of Sept. 11, but how do you do it in a unique way? How do you do it in an impactful way?” said Principal David Schoner, who got the idea for the project after seeing a similar tribute in California years ago.
