9/11 flag guy, a one man walking memorial

Honking fills the Academy and Galley intersection today as Criss Seal hold his American Flag high in the air.

As it flutters, he waves to drivers, and many of them honk back in acknowledgement.

He goes by the '9/11 flag guy,' and has raised his flag year after year since the terrorist attacks on American soil.

He's proud to be walking from corner to corner around the intersection on this day of remembrance and resurgence, and he believes it's a way to help the community come together.

Last year Seal says close to 200 came out to raise their flag with him. He hopes many will also join in the effort this year.

He walks from 6am until sun down and says he doesn't ever plan on stopping the tradition.
