Go out tommorrow and get an American Flag..

On Monday, September 11th, 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 fift h 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 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.


(1) Forward this email to everyone you know.
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.

boopme,

Timely heartfelt post. I for one thank you. As an addition to this excellent post. To those of you who may not know or be aware of, Sept. 11th is officially known as Patriot Day.

Congress has authorized and requested the President to designate September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day."

See this link for complete transcript.

I will never forget the feeling of seeing those towers burning.
I will never forget the sight of the collapse of the 1st tower and how I screamed at the television to get EVERYONE out of the second tower before it fell.
I will never forget the immediate shock of losing those innocent people, and my brothers in FDNY.
I will never forget the US flag being raised above the rubble, and the US flag being hung from the Pentagon.
I will never forget the silence of no air traffic.
I will never forget the church service I attended the next day - the sadness, the loss, the anger.

I will never forget those who hurt us that day.

I will be vigilant, doing my part in emergency services, preparing for the worst, backing my brothers protecting us in the military.

I will never forget September 11, 2001.

I have a flag on my room wall I painted myself and put stars for a border around my wall. I have a flag on the building facing the road where we park our atv all the time. Our flag is always up.

I still remember the day it happened. People jumping out and you hearing them on tv hitting the ground. Seeing them jump because of the fire. It being on almost every channel on all of tv(regular tv we dont have cable)

So very sad.

I still remember the day very clearly. I was on day off from work, still laying in bed from a long night out, with the tv on watching some BBC documentary when a news report interrupted the programme.

It was live pictures just after the first plane had impacted. They were reporting it was a possible engine issue or something had happened to the pilot, nothing was very clear. Then a minute later, watching LIVE, i saw the second plane crash, it then all became clear to everyone what was going on.

It was a day that i cant explain. Over here in England, everything stopped for a while. I will never forget watching that plane crash live on tv. I watched people die as it happened and will always stay in my mind, just like the bombings of my country men in London.

On September 11, we will all stand tall for those we will remember and to stand against the scum that thinks that killing innocent men,women and children is justified in there cause.

They will never win, our memory of those taken will not allow it.

There is an article in USA Today I believe about 6 babies born on 9-11-01. They are doing a follow up story about them turning 5 years old...

It was a spineless and cowardly attack by a group of sociopathic terrorist
they are no more a true representative of Muslims than the nazis were
representative of Christianity.
God Bless all the Nations who lost people on that day.
