Rural America Reacts

This tribute belt buckle is from the Clay County Fair in Iowa. An example of how September 11th impacted all parts of America, even rural America. Companies and organizations created objects like this as memorials or tributes, and people bought them to connect to an event, that in this case, happened hundreds of miles away (and arguably in a very different world). This buckle illustrates the power and meaning that such a simple object can take on and have to people.
