BRENTWOOD, TN (WSMV) - Flags at half staff are symbolic and respectful, and an important piece of the /911 Memorial’s Friday in Brentwood.

However, food means a lot, too. 

Every station in Brentwood was filled with snacks and gifts - a free thank you from Brentwood residents.

Katie Windstead started organizing this months event and raised $6,500. First responders paid tribute too, dressed in full gear running stairs to honor the brave in New York City 19 years ago.

September 11, 2001 now serves as a history lesson for young firefighters, not old enough to remember, but aware enough to never forget.
