Be prepared to fly your American flag on September 11.
On Sunday, September 11th, the tenth anniversary of one of our country’s worst disasters, everyone is encouraged to proudly display an American flag outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States. This has been suggested 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.
One email read, “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.”
