Lest we forget....

  1. Patrice, thank you for posting this photographic tribute. We must never
    forget.

    My own (little) way of showing I haven't
    forgotten is to fly my flag 24/7/365, and I've done that since 9/12/2001. Then, every year on this date I put out a new flag and retire the one that has been flying the entire preceding year. Seeing that new, crisp flag flying represents to me a symbolic continuity of our country.

    God Bless America!

  3. Thank you. This day weighs so heavy upon my heart. It's nice to know that others feel the same sense of honor and patriotism.
    God Bless America.

  4. Never, ever forget.

    A. P. I'm with ya. For many years I flew a U.S. flag in the front yard for any and all special holidays, in gratitude and honor of my Dad's service in the war. On September 11, 2001 I began flying it 24/7/365. We renew on Father's Day.

    My father-in-law is a retired naval officer. I wish you could see his face each time he comes to visit. He always looks up and pauses as he approaches the walkway where Old Glory waves. He's never spoken of it, and I doubt he knows I've been observing him do it, but I feel it as a strong, if silent, bond between us. The gratitude I can see he feels for our respect of the U.S.flag is more precious than words can express.

    No, never, never ever forget, and God bless America. She's not perfect, but she's mine.

    And even with all her current problems, she's still the best country on the planet to live.
