“RAGGED AND TORN. FADED AND GRAY.
THE FABRIC OF AMERICA EMERGED…”

30,000 Stitches tells the true story of the American flag that flew over Ground Zero in the days after 9/11, becoming torn and tattered and later traveled across all 50 states to be fully restored before returning to New York as a symbol of unity and hope.
