I will not forget the wound to our country and those who inflicted it. I will not yield, I will not rest, I will not relent in waging this struggle for freedom and security for the American people. - President George W. Bush, 2001
We are now five days away from the fifth anniversary of 9/11. Here's a plan for every red-blooded American next Monday - Operation 9/11: Fly those American flags!
On Monday, September 11, 2006, 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 fifth anniversary of our country's worst tragedy. We do this in 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 protect our cherished freedoms.
In the days, weeks, and months following 9/11, our nation 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 here's what we need to do:
1) Pass this information on to everyone you know.
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.
Thank you for your participation. May God bless America!
