Change of pace for the day to remember what tomorrow isPosted Thursday, September 10, 2009, at 2:30 PM
9-11 in NYC, Twin Towers
SEPT. 11, 2001: We're giving you a day to prepare.
Dawn Pletcher, co-director of Goodies for our Troops in Wellsboro, passes along a worthy suggestion about tomorrow's anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, the day when the entire country was shocked and galvanized into a renewed sense of patriotism.
Her suggestion is simple. Display your American flag.
Every home, apartment, office and store ought to fly the flag in acknowledgement of the eighth anniversary of this tragic event in American history.
Dawn writes, "We do this to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11/01, 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 9/11/01, 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."
She adds, "Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone flew the red-white-and-blue every day like right after 9/11/01 when you couldn't buy an American flag anywhere because they were all sold out?"
