9/11 Anniversary & the US Flag
(I don't usually pass along 'chain' messages, but this one promotes an appropriate way of remembering the upcoming anniversary of 9/11. For non-US residents, I know Americans would appreciate a similar demo in memory of the day! Consider it!)
We have a little less than one month and counting to get the word out all across this and into every community in the . If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the same ... You get the idea. Let's do this!
, 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 tenth 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. 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 email. (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. 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!
