AMARILLO -- A family is biking cross country with a flag for the World Trade Center.

They stopped in Amarillo today.

Tim Esser and his daughters are making the six-week trip from California to New York.

They're carrying an American flag.

It has the names of all lives lost in the 9-11 attack embroidered on it.

Esser says their main goal is to raise awareness about the great job first responders and our military are doing.

They'll present the flag to a branch of the military, police, and fire fighters when they get there in a few weeks.
