..................................,,,,,,.... ...,,,,.......



It's really sad that not everyone flies an American
flag. Our flag flies 365 days.

We have a little less than one month and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.


If you forward this to at least 11 people and each of those people do the same ... you get the idea.


THE PROGRAM:


On Friday, September 11th, 2009, 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 eighth anniversary of one of our country's worst tragedies. We do this to honor 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.

So, here's what we need you to do.


(1) Forward this to everyone you know (at least 11 people). Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.


Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America!

I was pretty shocked that hardly anyone displayed their flag in our neighborhood on the 4th of July this year. I daresay it won't be any different for September 11th. What a shame. I will be flying mine as always and I will pass this along. It's so hard to believe it's been 8 years.

on 9/11 I was in history class at the time that the first airplane had hit the World Trade Center, and I didn't talk for about 5 minutes at that time, out of respect for the many people who lost their lives that day. the one person who was talking at that time, though, was my history teacher!

I was watching a timeline on Fox News on Friday of that days events and it opened up old wounds. I also started crying and thought if not for this horrific tragedy, my nephew and all the soldiers that have died during the war would still be here with us.

This happened when I was still in college. I went to school three days a week and the other 2 I worked at a doctor's office. I was at work that day sitting at my desk when the news broke. It was so upsetting. And when they said one of the planes crashed just ouside of Pittsburgh flipped. I thought they were going to hit something here down town. Me and another lady were so scared that we left work. My dad picked me up and I went to an appointment with him. While sitting in the waiting room they kept showing it on the tv. It was one of the most beautiful and sunny days. No one was ready for something like that to happen.

So true Beckie...it's a date that will forever be etched in all of our minds----where we were, what we were doing. It's right there at the forefront. My 2nd cousin died in Tower 2...he had just gotten married and just landed this fantastic job and moved to New York. I didn't know him (I'm the youngest of 48 grandchildren, so I don't even know all my first cousins, let alone my second), but when I think of how my aunt must be feeling on September 11th (he was her oldest grandson), my heart just breaks for her, and of course all those who lost someone on that tragic day.

I've had mine up all summer. I plan to leave it up until the end of this month. I would leave it up all year, but it would start looking bad.
Besides, if my dog goes out there to potty in the morning it scares her....not sure why, its been there every morning!
