INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– A Hoosier continued his more than decade-long tribute Wednesday to the victims and first responders of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on American soil.
Jimmy Clark started waving the American flag on the 56th Street bridge over I-465 in northwest Indianapolis at 6 a.m. and planned on staying for 12 straight hours.
Passing cars and trucks immediately started waving and honking their appreciation for the effort, which Clark has made on all 12 anniversaries of that Tuesday morning in 2001, when nearly 3,000 people were killed in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania in coordinated attacks.
Each year, Clark takes the spirit of giving and selflessness embodied by all Americans on Sept. 11 by shining a light on a charitable group in central Indiana, he said. This year, Clark is highlighting The Ribbon Spa for a Cause, which is an Indianapolis non-profit that provides free beauty services to men and women stricken with cancer.
The services are provided with the support of corporate and individual donors. Anyone interested in donating money or receiving services can find more information on The Ribbon Spa for a Cause’s website at http://www.ribbonspa.com/.
