CHARLOTTE, NC - Wilson was on E. 7th Street in Charlotte today as volunteers placed the 2,997 American flags that will be on display for the 10th Annual "Flags of Remembrance" reflective memorial this Sunday, Sept 11th. Each flag represents a life lost and will have a picture attached of each victim. Once placed these flags will be displayed in the shape of the Twin Towers.
Wilson talked with volunteers and family members of some of the victims of 9/11 and what this memorial means to them.
