On Thursday, September 11th, 2008, 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
seventh anniversary of one our country's worst tragedies. We do this 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.
