Author, teacher, artist and innovator, Amanda Davis, collaborated with artist and illustrator, Sally Wern Comport, to share the touching story of the National 9/11 Flag in the children’s book, “30,000 Stitches, The Inspiring Story of the National 9/11 Flag.” This story follows the journey of one flag which flew above the wreckage of the World Trade Center in the days following 9/11, bringing together ordinary American citizens to do an extraordinary task- repair the flag. From Veterans, service members and firefighters, to students, teachers, activists and the Navajo Code Talkers, “30,000 Stitches” follows the flag as it brought the spirit of unity and restoration to all 50 states — stich by stich. This inspiring children’s book reminds us that despite that fateful September morning, America will forever be united, strong and enduring.
