Fly U.S. flags today, on 9/11 - Patriots Day

September 11, 2013 

Ah, another chance for us to show our love for country and our appreciation for living in this special country. How better to show it than to fly our flag on Patriots Day, Sept. 11.

It is a disappointment to me every year as I notice the scarcity of flags flying in our neighborhoods and businesses.

Years ago I visited relatives in Norway and came home deeply impressed by their total outright display, in all areas, of their flag. My hope was that someday I would see a proliferation of our red, white, and blue here... flags, flags, flags!
