Fly the US flag

Recently emailed to me from a concerned American. Please read and heed.

Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE pass this message immediately to everyone you know. We have less than one week and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.

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 one our country's worst tragedies. We do this to honor those who were killed in the horrible mass murders in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania. We honor their families, friends, loved ones who continue to endure the pain to this day, 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 Islamic 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, what we need you to do is fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Wear a flag pin on your clothes, show the flag on your car, and display a flag at your home. 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 and please don’t forget to pass the word. God bless you and God Bless America!
