9/11: A rolling tribute

The residents of my hometown come together each year on Sept. 11 to offer a rolling memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Each year it grows as thousands of motorcyclists from across the country join in the ride. Growing up here, it always was a special moment when community members, neighbors and visitors would gather together along the roadside and wave, cheer or salute the passing motorcyclists.

This year they hold it again (as I write this in fact), and while I wish I could be out there with them, the beauty of such a memorial is that it will continue to go on for years to come as long as people are willing to ride.

Last year I was honored to join the ride and pay tribute in my own way. Here is a video I made on that day.
