God Bless America, Fly the Flag on 9-11

God Bless the USA
By JR Hafer
On Friday, September 11th, 2009, we will be memorializing a great tragedy, one that could have brought this great nation to its knees.

The blood of those who lost their lives that day cry to our hearts and plead to us; not to succumb to mediocrity and indifference regarding acts of violence against America. A plead for Americans to rise up stronger than before, with greater resolve, to protect and defend our great nation.

America is a beacon of freedom to the world. We are bound to the memory of those who lost their lives on 9-11- 2001… To protect America from those who hold adverse ideologies and dogmas and to stand and defend her from those who swear oaths against the very existence of America. Listen to that cry, listen and take heed, fellow Americans.

On Friday the eighth year of remembrance, we shall stand tall with broken hearts and tears in our eyes. We have the responsibility as Americans to fly “Old Glory” our national banner, as we listen to that agonizing cry while the buildings fall to the ground once again. Listen to the united cry from those who we remember: “The price of freedom that we have paid is now your responsibility to preserve”.

This day, American flags should be displayed on the doorstep of every home, apartment, office, and storefront on American soil. Let it be a symbol to every citizen of the world that we, do indeed, remember as a matter of pride and patriotism, the attacks against our right to achieve and exist.
Every American should see it as their duty to display an American flag on the anniversary of our country's worst tragedies. We should never let time heal our hearts. We also should not allow the attack on America at Pearl Harbor fade into the background of our minds. All should be collectively remembered on this day.

We do this to honor those who lost their lives, their families and friends who continue to remember with pride, those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, The Red, White and Blue of American flags mourned the incredible losses. We proudly stood shoulder-to-shoulder and rallied against terrorism. Let’s not let those flags disappear. Our patriotism pulled us together in those times. Let the memory of 9/11 galvanize us in united solidarity again and again for ever. Amen…

Our American flag is stained Red with the blood, White with the purity of sacred faith and the Blue steely resolve of us who have tasted freedom and cherish it so dearly. Indeed, freedom is stitched into the fabric of our nation and the pride of knowing Americans can triumph over terrorism. Good over evil is always honorable.
Remember how we all felt Tuesday morning September 11, 2001 when we lost many in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in the rolling meadows of Pennsylvania.

Join us and fly the American flag on this Friday September 11th.

God Bless the United States of America!
