Schumer says that displaying and wearing the flag on clothing will send a clear message that Americans will never forget those who were lost on that fateful day.

"To display the flag at your home, at your office, wearing it on your clothing is a way to commemorate those who were lost and to show that America will not rest until the War on Terror is finally won," Schumer said.

The senator said that Americans responded to a similar call he made ten years ago and thinks that doing it again would be a great tribute to people killed in the tragedy.

"A good way to remember those who were lost and to symbolize that we will prevail in the war on terrorism is to display the flag," Schumer said.
