Dear friends overseas,
After my second visit to New York in two years on August 25th 2012 the Flag of Honors crossed the Atlantic Ocean.
It now respectfully waves at the 7th floor, room 07.29 in of the council offices of the municipality of Heerlen, a town with 90.000 residents in the very south of the Netherlands, adjacent to Germany.
In this very building I was - as many many others worldwide - overwhelmed stunned by the terrible news on 9/11.
And I still am.
The orange top of the flagstaff symbolizes the historical bond between the Dutch and the great city of New York.
