Posted on 08/28/2007 7:44:46 PM PDT by NonValueAdded
Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE forward this [as an] email immediately to everyone in your address book asking them to also forward it. We have a little less than two weeks and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America. If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the same...you get the idea.
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 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.
Action Plan: So, here's what we need you to do...
(1) Forward this email to everyone you know (at least 11 people). Please don't be the one to break this chain. 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.
Thank you for your participation.
God Bless You and God Bless America
Always Remember, Never Forget!
ping for a pingout, please
I do, every day.
Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! And God Bless the Eagles when they gather on Sept. 15th. Let’s not forget that activity. Would you please add a link to the GOE details as a reply to this thread? Thanks!
Should I take my flag down for the next week or so just in order to look good when I raise it back up on 9-11?

And urge your church to hold a special service that day or at the very least have some hours when it will be open for prayer and meditation.
I know of a church in my community which holds a service every year on September 11, irrespective of the day of the week.
No, instead get 11 flags to fly on that day. That won’t just look good, it will look GREAT.
Thanks guys, I figured this was a great way to reach 11,000 instead of just 11, and I appreciate the support.
My Pleasure. On March 17th of this year, I drove from Texas to DC. I carried a flag that was flown over Balad Air Base and was also flown in a F16 over Free Iraq. I will carry this same flag on 911 with pride.
I will also carry this same flag on September 15th.
May God Bless our Troops.
FLAG’s-UP ..every day..!!!

Did you know Rick?
If so, it must have been an honor to know him. Like it is an honor to know you Ronnie. I know I thanked you before, but I don’t think we can thank you enough.
Thanks again for your great service to our great Nation.
For as long as I live, it will be remembered and appreciated.
Will fly the flag and gladly wear a pin.
Just hope it doesn’t rain that day. Our Grand Old Flag doesn’t need to get soaking wet.
The Gadsden Flag ain't a bad choice to fly alongside Old Glory on 9/11.
Please don't. Not ever. If you must spam the world, provide a simple e-mail and point to a Web site. The problem with mass-forwarded e-mail is that it doesn't stop spreading when it stops being relevant, and you'll get it back 20 times over a span of years.
Joseph Angelini, Sr. of Rescue 1 was the most decorated active firefighter in the FDNY. His son, Joseph Jr., was also killed at Ground Zero.
Which is exactly why I'm making an exception from my usual policy. This one will never stop being relevant and if it has a life of 20 years, well, that is a good thing. Perhaps this is the exception that proves the rule.
But I always strip off any embedded addresses and bcc those whom I know will appreciate the content. It may be a spam sandwich but at least I try to improve the flavor. :)
Thank you for your kindness, do the dhue.
I was blessed to serve with RICK RESCORLA, and many other real life Heroes, in CUSTER’s 7th Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam.
Guess I’m the truly blessed one here..?
And I would say you are blessed and have been blessed for a long time.
And may God continue to bless you and yours.
nice ride :-)
I fly the American Flag EVERY DAY since 9/11
Oh, he had to be there. I think it would have driven him absolutely insane to stand by and watch while his comrades -- at his age, more like his "kids" -- ran into harm's way.
There just aren't the words for men like him.
Absolutely!! The flag flies at this house 24/7/365. We recently had some landscaping done and had to take it down for a few days -- my house felt nekkid!!
And I'll go you one better... on 9/11, take the opportunity to drop by a firehouse, a police station, or a local military recruiting office or military installation with a handwritten note that just says THANK YOU. And if you're really good, take some Oreos and milk or soda along! You'll make their week!!
Fly the flag. Fly it high, fly it proud. I take no issue with the mesage, The proposed delivery method irks me
My only issue was with the statement "forward this to everyone in your address book." Oh, sweet mother, no.
I say fly it on every other day aswell!
Will do, I’ll put an extra one up right out by the mailbox
I love this post. I noticed lately while house shopping with a friend that not many people fly our flag. I hope this helps!!

I know what you mean.
Several men in my immediate family are or have been members of the FDNY (and NYPD). They rushed to respond and I’m so proud of them all!
Flag will be flown as a matter of course for that date and shirt commemorating that day will be worn to work regardless of dress code.
Wouldn’t have it any other way!
Each & every day!
They only come down if it rains.
I’m averse to pinging my list(s) for any topic which is not related to the ping list subject, but you can be sure I’ll hang our flag proudly on September 11, and further, I will be wearing my American flag shirt on campus that day.
Understood, but do feel free to mention it in conversation :) Thank you for all you do for RKBA.
Put the Towers back!!!!
