Never forget

Wanting to recognize the Sept. 11, 2001 tragedy, William Nottingham shows his respect by walking up and down Main Street in Gatesville carrying and waving a large U.S. flag. The veteran said he wanted to show his patriotism and remind the public of the unity shown across the country following the horrific events of 9/11. He said that this country is currently torn in half and he would like the citizens of this nation to unify as they did after the tragedy of the twin towers in New York City. Nottingham started his patriotic walk at 7 a.m. from the National Guard Armory at the Highway 36 bypass and walked to the courthouse and repeated this process several times. He received many positive responses from drivers including waves and horns honking.
