I stumbled upon this tonight and it got me to thinking (now that is scarey) - just what is going on and how soon has the American public in general forgotten??? I must add that my flag has flown over my house 24/7 for about the past 8 years! The flames are out, the debris is cleared... From that day that we all feared... To remember those that died that day... We showed our American pride in many ways... We hung out the flags and made donations... To show our pride for our nation... American slogans written on cars... Sympathy came from near and far... Volunteered our time to those we'd never met... Hoping to aide in the worry and fret... We lit candles with neighbors and friends... Showing our pride just wouldn't end... Red, White and Blue was seen everywhere... Where have they gone, it just isn't fair... Is it that people just no longer care... Are they no longer saying those prayers... Are all of the flags tucked under the bed... Did they forget about all that are dead... American husbands, daughters and sons are still fighting... So why are the candles no longer lighting... Flags went out of stock in every store... Now they're no longer hanging by each door... The war is not over, their still fighting for us... So few show the colors, is it too much of a fuss... So if you're one who has put your flag away... Remember our soldiers are still fighting each day... So take out the Red, White and Blue and fly it high... For the soldiers at war that still may die... Our patriotism should have only just begun... Do not forget who they are and what they've done.. September 11 will stay in our hearts forever, and so should our pride... AMERICANS RAISE THOSE FLAGS HIGH Credits to: Linda & Tiffani D.
