Fly Your Flag Today

This suggestion was sent to me by my friend Jane (thanks, Jane!). I’ve got my little flag out on the mailbox.

On Thursday, September 11th, 2008, an American flag should be
displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the
United States. Every individual should make it their duty to display
an American flag on this seventh anniversary of our country’s worst
tragedies. We do this in honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11,
their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the
pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve
our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed
in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood
shoulder-to- shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all
but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and
it shouldn’t take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our
American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail
over terrorism of all kinds.
