'Badges of Hope' give children a voice

Kids could write thank you's for first responders on badges at the Albany Mall / Ashley Knight

Kids out at the mall experienced 'Badges of Hope' Sunday.

It's all part of the 9-11 tribute.

Kids could write their hopes and dreams, or maybe just a simple thank you to those who serve on a special paper shaped like an officer badge.

The board holding all the badges will make its way around Albany for display.
