Wear Your Colors - Show Your Pridegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread
In light of this terrible tradgy that has affected all Americans, a suggestion has been made to show our true colors. Today as part of the solidarity of Americans, try to wear something on your clothing proudly displaying the RED, WHITE and BLUE. United we stand! Just because we're down doesn't mean we're out!
Wishing you enough.

Dianne, It makes my heart feel warm seeing that everyone has been flying the flags, displaying them on the cars. But last night I could not help but shed several tears, yesterday at the schools they asked all of the children to go home and place a Black bow on their mail boxes and place candles in there windows and at 7Pm to light those candles. My kids were at home and I had ran to my sisters house on the way home at 8pm every house on our road which is 9 miles long every mail box had a black bow, and a candle lit for all of the mothers, fathers, brothers, sister and children that will not be comeing home to there family's. These are said times that we are living now but maybe and just maybe this will bring our country alittle closer. But it is also sad that It takes something like this to make our country come together. God Bless.

According to a newscaster over 2,000,000 American Flags have been sold since Tuesday.
My hope is that when the tradegy becomes bearable people retain their pride in America and not resort to "status Quo"
