(please feel free to share your memories in the comment section below...)
On September 11th 2001, I was watching Good Morning America with my oldest daughter (then 19 months) and 7 months pregnant with my second daughter...my parents were about to fly to Florida and were preparing to leave for the airport. My husband was at work. I sobbed all day and couldn't get the images of the towers falling out of my mind...but you know...as horrible as it is...life gets hard...and it's up to each of us as individuals to make this world a better place for all. Do we let our hearts grow hard and bitter or do we stand up and teach a new attitude to our children?
don't give me more problems...give me more solutions!
Let's try to live that way more often!
God Bless America...Home of the Free and the Brave!
Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE info with everyone in your world asking them to also share it. We have a little 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 .
I was emailed the original but really hate to bulk emails like this and the blog is a perfect soap box...so here it is.
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 Am erican flag on this seventh anniversary of one our country's worst tragedies. We do this 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
So, he re's what we need you to do ..
(1) Post the info on your blog. 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.
