Did you remember to display your flag today?

There is no bad day to display your flag but today is one of the best!

If you haven't put out your flag yet it's not too late. What better day to show some patriotism than today, 9-11.

All of us were affected by the events of that day but none more than airline employees, firefighters, police officers and of course our military. Next time you have a chance, say thanks to them for their service.

Rules to display the flag according to the United States “Flag Code”

 Respect for the Flag. No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America.

 (a) The flag should never be displayed with union down.

 (b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it.

 (c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.

 (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.

 (e) The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner

as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.

 (f) The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.

 (g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to

it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any

nature.

 (h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying,

or delivering anything.

 (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner

whatsoever.

I learned the correct procedure for displaying the flag long ago as a kid.  It is amazing how many times I see these preferences violated.  And yes, let us always remember the fallen victims.
