Houston County Courier
Sept. 11, 2011, will mark a decade since the United States of America and ninety-one other countries lost nearly 3,000 citizens by terrorist attack. Begin now to plan for commemorative events. The Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR encourages everyone to get their flags ready and fly them proudly, if not every day, especially on Sept. 11, to remember when so many gave so much. The Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR asks citizens to make Patriot’s Day—Remember Sept. 11, 2001 a priority and another day that will live in infamy! The Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR also invites citizens to join them in its Fly the Flag campaign this week.
On Thursday, Sept. 11, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office and store in the United States. Every individual should make it his/her duty to display an American flag on this seventh anniversary of one the country’s worst tragedies, according to a press release from the Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR. “We do this honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms,” the press release states. “
In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. “Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn’t take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds,” the Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR asserts. The action plan proposed by the Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR is as follows:
(1) Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.
(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don’t, then at least make it a priority on this day.
“Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America !!!” the Major Jarrell Beasley Chapter, NSDAR states.
