Hard to imagine since Kerry and Kennedy are our senators, but whike I ran to the store this AM there were flags up all over my little piece of MA. And yes, they were American flags.
Remember to fly your flags today.

Hear the town churchbell ringing now.
The SOBs at CBS completely blew off anything to do with the WTC. Totally ignore the moment of silence. Were to busy doing a piece on mediatation for your health.
.S soldiers march in front of a U.S flag during a memorial ceremony at Bagram Air Base, north of Kabul Saturday, Sept. 11, 2004. Bagram held a ceremony at the main American base on Saturday to mark the third anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks
Never forget. Never forgive.
CNN is showing a split screen of scenes from that day.
I just blew a headgasket at my local CBS affiliate for totally ignoring the WTC. I felt bad for the young lady as she said it was out of her control. But I'm flaming POed.
The memorials started and C-span is not showing these memorial ceremonies.
It would be appropriate to have One of the c-spans doing uninterupted coverage.
President Bush and first lady Laura Bush, center, takes part in a moment of silence, Saturday, Sept. 11, 2004, on the South Lawn of the White House. They are joined by Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, right, and other White House employees in remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Brings it all back...
I swear CBS is doing everything it can to keep it from being an emotional moment. At least NBC is showing things live. Even the ceremony in Boston. But CBS is shooting blanks. Sumner Redstone the owner of CBS lives in Boston. Maybe he doesn't want to offend his commie friends.

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.
T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.
The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.
When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.
"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see
I have to be the first one to admit...... I have forgotten. I have forgotten why I hate the likes of bill maher, barbara striesand, alec baldwin and so many others who speak out against this country. I have forgotten the raw hatred that was burning in me for the president who let this happen. Today as I watch these ceremonies I remember ......again.......the wound is open and I despise these people even more and I realize what George Bush said is true, "We cannot win this war". Do you know why? Unlike the Taliban, these enemies of America are protected by the constitution and under that constitution they have the right to attack us and their planes are the media and their television shows . To me I will always refer to bill maher as the 21st hijacker.
Hugs.....Faith....We will win, Victory is ours.
