Locally, we can honor those lost on 9/11 at the Miracle Mile 9/11 Monument and Tree Grove in Hancock Park, adjacent to the Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits. The Monument and trees were planted by the First in Fire Foundation and the Miracle Mile Civic Coalition to honor Captain Charles Burlingame, pilot of American Airlines Flight 77, along with his crew and passengers, including children and teachers bound for a naturalist field trip…as well as the firefighters and police officers who perished at the Pentagon and the World Trade Center sites.
“Together . . . quietly we remember September 11 & the extraordinary courage of our first responders. Together we rise & honor those loved and lost with public service in each of our own lives. United we stand. With love and respect, Lyn MacEwen Cohen, Marc Cohen, and Wally Marks,” wrote Lyn MacEwen Cohen in a message to the Buzz.
“These trees were planted by Hollywood/LA Beautification Team with our help,” said Cohen. “As we remember the 21st Anniversary of September 11 in 2022, the foundation welcomes your reflections. Your remembrance and your public service is a tribute to their lives. United We Stand. Please email to: [email protected]”
Visitors can also see a Firehouse Memorial Plaque and Flowering Crepe Myrtle tree at Fire Station 61, Battalion 18, South Bureau, where LAFD honors firefighter David Weiss, Manhattan Rescue I, FDNY.
