Radio host makes annual 9/11 flag tribute happen

The annual planting of flags representing each of the lives lost in the 9/11 terrorist attack was threatened this year by the city of Des Moines claiming a lack of enough flags and volunteers.
Confronted with the city’s claim, afternoon host on news-talk WHO, Simon Conway, determined not to allow anything to stand in the way of the tradition he established with the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

So he turned to social media and his show to summon listeners to the park to help out, and help out they did, successfully planting the flags in the ground. (photo)
