Fly an American Flag

Thought I'd share this thought I found...

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 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.

Thanks for this reminder. I need to buy a new one, as our old one got tattered from the wind.

Very good reminder. I would, but my rental property won't allow it! How awful is that?

Tara - Thanks for the reminder. By-the-way, I miss you! I'm so sad you aren't here with us. I was so looking forward to seeing you. Now I have to wait yet another year. Bummer. I hope you are having a great time with your family, though.

Breitling Watches have had a long historical association with the air industry, both military and civilian. When Breitling Aeromarine was first established its main business concern was making precise counters for both scientific and industrial use. Its specialized knowledge of making precision timepieces made it a watchmaker that would be in demand from the then, fledging aviation industry. The relationship between aviation and Breitling Windrider was officially established when, in 1936, the British Royal Air Force issued Bentley 6.75 to its aircrews.
But what did it add to Christian Louboutin Sale image? Although the clothes looked luxurious and beautifully made, they followed the Christian Louboutin Pumps brand's early trajectory toward the Eurotrash crowd. You might find young women in the Christian Louboutin Boots and maybe in the tricksy little Christian Louboutin Sandals in a Madrid night spot
Have you met Coach handbags yet? This classy lady is livin' large! She is lightweight and trim. In fact she is pretty cool! Did you know that the first handbag designed for Coach Bonnie was prompted by a brown paper Coach Ergo ? Since 1962 the inspiration for Coach Wristlet , purses and totes has not changed much.
