September 11, 2009

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.
Fly an American flag of any size on September 11th. 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 so wholeheartedly agree with this post. It saddens me to see the slow decline of the American flag outside of people's homes. I loved seeing all the red, white and blue right after Sept 11, but I wish it would continue. Here's hoping that people remember to fly their flags in remembrance and solidarity in just a few short days.

I also wanted to say such a huge thank you to you. Your kind comments and words of advice have been SO meaningful and important to me over this very difficult last week. I love the blogging community so much and am so blessed to have come across such wonderful people like yourself. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! xoxo.
