Don Goff, director of operations with Flag for Hope, helps Kelsey Edwards position her handprint on the flag at Studies Weekly in Orem on Thursday. The Flag for Hope symbolically represents thousands of Americans holding hands without conflict or hatred and is a collection of hand and finger impressions on a giant canvas to create the U.S. flag. “The Flag for Hope project is also about honor and respect for men and women that have proudly worn a United States military uniform and fought for our freedoms,” Chris Cavedon, executive director of Flag for Hope, said in a statement. “Flag for Hope is a reminder that freedom isn’t free. Many have sacrificed for the privileges that we all have today in this country.”
