AS SEPTEMBER 11 APPROACHES...

JOIN US IN


FLY THE FLAG CAMPAIGN


With the important election coming up this year it is even more important that we fly our flag.

Not only in remembrance of 9/11, but to remind us of the importance to pay attention to the issues in this election, and be preparing to vote on November 4th.

Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign. It is just 4 days to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.


THE PROGRAM IS THIS: On Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, 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 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.


So here's what to do: (1) 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.


SUSAN (A.K.A.PENLESSWRITER) says: "We fly a 3'x5' most every day, unless the weather is really bad. Mickey went out yesterday and purchased two of the little flags to put on our vehicles on 9/11. Remember the ones that clip on the window that so many of us flew right after 9/11?"

I love those ideas Susan!


Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America.

And in case you haven't noticed---


I support John McCain for President!



I love the following statements from Senator McCain's speech last Thursday night!


"Despite our differences, much more unites us than divides us. We are fellow Americans, and that's an association that means more to me than any other.



My friends, if you find faults with our country, make it a better one. If you're disappointed with the mistakes of government, join its ranks and work to correct them."

Great idea Pam! We have so much to be thankful for. We should all show how proud we are to be Americans.

I’m cleaning the master closet this weekend, but I sneak away periodically to read a few blogs. (Hey, a girl needs a break every once in awhile! Especially from a job I don’t enjoy…at all!) It’s been fun catching up with you. I hope you’re having a good weekend.

Hugs!
Kat

Pam, the idea of displaying the flag appeals to be greatly...good idea and thanks.

Hope you and your family are doing well down in Florida and that you will all miss Hurrican Ike.

I love the ideas!! We have been talking about the lack of flags anymore...we got chill bumps when we saw flages literally everywherd before---on cars, homes, businesses, on trucks...flying over many places!! May we see that agin soon!!

I actually loved MCain's speech---alot of it brough tears. Evrn though he has been on the campaign trail, we were surprised at how concise and to our issues his speecah was and ENCOURAGING that he can help unite America and move us forward. And, there is hope for middle class working America...All that and Palin, too!!

The flag is the most beautiful sight in the world. Tomorrow we head to the embassy and it always makes me cry to see Old Glory flying overseas.

PALIN ROCKS!!!

I am VERY excited about this election. I truly believe that those turning from McCain, turned back because he chose Palin.

Every 9*11, I always pin a red, white and blue ribbon on my coat. I dont want my fellow Canadians to EVER forget that day either!
I think about that day very, very often. After it happened, I put some red and white and blue candles out on the parking lot of my house, with a huge sign saying God bless America. I have to see if I can find that picture. A few neighbors began doing the same thing as me. And every year I wear my ribbon on that day.
In the province where I was born and raised (Newfoundland, Canada) this was the province where all the planes were diverted and Canadians took in thousands and thousands of air flight passengers into their homes, fed them, gave them a place to sleep and conforted them as the passengers from the States had to deal with the shock and hurt and not being able to go home because there were no planes allowed to fly for a while. That day affected many Canadians, it was a day that broke our heart in pieces, it hit us so hard because it was so close to home. They attacked our neighbors! How DARE they!!!! It still makes me mad to think of that day. There have been threats made to Canada constantly after that. Thats why our countries stick together. I thank God for The UNited States as neighbors. And I hope and pray that McCain wins.

Love ya

Candy - I thank you for all of your kind remarks about my beautiful country. I remember reading and seeing photos of the dear Canadians who cared for our stranded airline passengers. That was an awesome gesture and great example of what the world needs more of!
I was really touched to read about your candles and sign. Thank you dear friend for your kindness.
