Fly The Flag! (from Usafa)

Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE forward this to everyone in you know asking them to also forward it.
We have a little less than one week 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.


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, this flag flying has 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. (Some wept, some were
dumbfounded, and some prayed)

(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.

You can thank yourself for your participation.

God Bless You and God Bless America
