Proclamation from Governor George Pataki
Reflecting on this solemn anniversary, we remain grateful for the continuous expressions of remembrance, such as that shown by a community of 900 friends and supporters from the great State of Oregon, who in early October 2001, traveled by air to New York City as a show of support for victims of the tragic events of that September.
Proclamation from Mayor Tom Potter
Leaders of our community responded by organizing Flight For Freedom 2006, in which more than 250 Oregonians will come together to reconnect with New Yorkers.
Letter from Senator Gordon Smith
My thoughts and best wishes are with all those who are joining in the journey to New York City as part of the "Flight for Freedom 2."
Letter from Senator Ron Wyden
As you embark on your second Flight for Freedom trip, I want to thank you for once again extending a hand of friendship to our fellow citizens.
Letter from Congressman Earl Blumenauer
That you are choosing to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy with another trip to New York City just confirms your resolve and is indicative of the generous spirit of Oregonians.
Letter from Governor Theodore Kulongoski
I want to express my sincere congratulations for once again showing how Oregon can lead the nation in friendship as you embark on your second Flight for Freedom Trip.
