Show your colors. Track back or e-mail your favorite American flag photos.
Reader Paige D. sends her favorite:
Charles Ryder at Age of Hooper was at the Simon Deng Freedom Walk rally yesterday, which called attention to the jihadist war on Christians and horros of slavery in Sudan. He took this picture of Deng, a great American:
The Political Pit Bull picked Old Glory at Ground Zero. Lots of readers sending their favorite images of the flag-raising at Iwo Jima.
Reader Tim Hartigan sends the banner from his company's website and e-mails: "The Flag and our work are intertwined. This is a graphic we proudly display at the top of every page of our website. Our company helps in a small way in supplying our armed forces with the best hardware in the world."
Jon Ham at the John Locke Foundation e-mails a lovely Life cover from 1942 and e-mails: "Imagine a mainstream news magazine doing a cover like this today the American flag portrayed without sarcastic comment, and with the tag line, United We Stand, printed unselfconsciously. This was about seven months after Pearl Harbor. Today that cover would be Why The Japanese Hate Us So.
Emily Zanotti has this one on her office wall:

Mike C. sends a photo he took on July 4, 2003 in Chicago:
Reader Jerry B. sends this moving photo he snapped two months before the Sept. 11 attacks and writes: "I took this photo from the circle line on 7/22/2001. Just as I snapped the photo, a breeze put the flag on the back of the boat into the scene. Little did I know Im still employed by the company that was the largest tenant at the WTC, and was in lower Manhattan as the events of 9/11 were taking place. This will always be my favorite flag photo."

Reader Dane sends a gorgeous photo he took in his hometown (Enterprise, AL) outside an historic hotel:
The Glenn and Helen show podcast today features an interview with Bill Frist about developments on the immigration legislation front.
Glenn proposes that he might barge into the Capitol, McKinney-style, and start conducting business as an "undocumented Senator."
Senate Republicans will filibuster their own immigration bill today in the face of steadfast refusal by Democrats to allow amendments to the bill that many conservatives view as granting amnesty to illegal aliens.
As an alternative, Majority Leader Bill Frist reached an agreement last night with fellow Republicans on a new comprehensive immigration plan that includes increasing border security and a guest-worker plan, but still does not resolve concerns about amnesty.
The new plan would allow illegal aliens who have been in the United States for more than five years to remain in the country working while applying for U.S. citizenship. Those who have been here between two and five years would have to apply for citizenship at a point of entry, but could remain working. Anyone here for less than two years would have to leave the country, but they could still apply for citizenship from their home country.
Mr. Frist declined to tell The Washington Times last night how he would vote on the alternative measure.
Take time out today to e-mail GOP senators: No Amnesty.

I love that picture...........
Thank you! Most of them are keepers I've had since 9-11 and during the war. Memorable images I never want to forget, and want to share with my littlest when she's older. Living history in a sense as she was born a year after 9-11.
Thank you, Tonk!
You are a hero, and a man among men. Thank you for your great and continued service to our country.
We've since moved, but the new flagpole is going in this weekend.
thank you for making them "keepers"!
This is a great idea! I suggest Latina singers...the first who comes to mind is Patsy Torres, whom I met once and who has entertained at Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. You might do well with a Grupo Tejano such as Los Lonely Boys...
It's important for Latinos who are proud of America to speak up and be heard!
Funny you should mention patriotic Latino's.
Another thread up today was talking about the illegal's protesting. It said that Latino leaders realize that all the waving of the Mexican flag had backfired on them and that they are looking unpatriotic. The protestors have been asked to have an American flag to fly with their Mexican flag or to leave the Mexican flag home completely.
This was concerning an upcoming rally in Tuscon, AZ. Hispanic parents of schoolchildren are even forbidding their children to go to the rally. The schools have warned the children that they will be suspended if they leave school to attend the rally. Some children want to skip school all day and come in with a "sick" excuse from their parents to cover them. Some parents say they won't give their child an excuse to miss school to attend the rally.
I'm all for a rally but someone with a lot more money than I have will have to put it on. Or we will have to take up a collection. Money will have to be raised for security, insurance, porta-potties, a stage and a sound system. Vendors will have to be there to provide food and drink opportunities for the crowd. Speakers usually want their transportation costs and other expenses covered too.
Some relly great pictures of our flag on this thread.
I wish the illegals could see them.
They would see how real Patriotic Americans honor their flag and their country.
