LOGAN, Utah – Follow the Flag North Ogden began Healing Flight 2 by heading to Logan, UT to hang “Baby Betsy” in the heart of the town to show support and healing for the tragic loss of Elizabeth Shelley, or “Lizzy”. The flag was lowered from the edges of the only building in town that was large enough for even the small flag. As the good people of Logan drove down Main Street, many were touched as the symbol of unity and freedom graced downtown.
