Today, (Okay, technically yesterday now) Bin Laden released a video. First new video that he has appeared on in 3 years. Ironic that he decided to do it so close to the anniversary of 9-11. Well, not really. Most likely well planned out by him.

The anniversary of 9-11 is coming up in 3 days and that's where I will be focusing my attention. To something so tragic that mattered to all of us and all those who lost loved ones ....... By that I do not mean other things are not as important to us.

I keep getting emails that ask me to fly my flag on Tuesday and if I go out anywhere to drive with my headlights on. They even asked people to do that on the news the other night as a sign or respect for those who lost their lives and those who lost someone in their lives. A tribute that we have not forgotten them or what their deaths meant to us. A tribute to all our soldiers of yesterday, today and tomorrows to come.

So my flag will be out --it would have been anyway-- and my headlights will be on. I'll probably go somewhere just so I can have them on and see how many others do.
So I guess that I am requesting that we could maybe all do this together. Even if it's a 2" flag that you buy an put on your mailbox. Can we do this? Can we all just put our differences aside and honor all of them ? They deserve it and they earned it, with their lives.

Here is to Our American brothers and sisters. Flags, lights, my eternal respect for those who lost their lives or somone close to them. To all our millitary and the millitary of other countries who stood by us in our time of need. You deserve so much more than the waving of our flag and the headlights on our vehicles. You have my support on this.

My flag flies everyday and has since I got home from Nam. I've driven with my headlights on everyday since 09\11\2001. Good idea to remind folks though. A shiny green thingy for you.

I have an American Flag STICKER on my car... This is meant to be a good thing, but since I drive such a shitty car, it probably looks bad.
But yes, the flag WILL be out and the lights will indeed be on.

I just can't believe it's been six years..... feels like half that...

Everything that the "terrorist" do is well planned and orchestrated, and this is no exception. Differences aside, yes; honor and respect for all past present and future military people,firefighters, police, and everyday citizens who do heroic acts,is something that I think should be given all the time.
