Patriot Day is a time for us to remember and honor those who lost their lives in 2001 - not a day to dwell on rambling terrorists
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) September 11, 2007
As we observe the sixth anniversary of 9/11 and as a second Osama bin Laden video attracts international media attention, AmericanFlags.com urges all citizens to display their American flags, keeping them at half-mast throughout the day. While U.S. flags and other visible displays of national pride flourished in the wake of 9/11, many of those symbols of patriotism have disappeared in recent years and badly weathered and tattered flags have become all-too-commonplace.
"We must not allow Osama bin Laden to hijack 9/11," said AmericanFlags.com President and CEO Jeffrey L. Reynolds, Ph.D. "Patriot Day is a time for us to remember and honor those who lost their lives in 2001 - not a day to dwell on rambling terrorists," said Reynolds. "The patriotism exhibited in the days, weeks and months following 9/11 united the country and energized communities against terrorism in all its forms. The American flag remains our most visible symbol of strength and resolve in the face of adversity; fly the flag today and every day. It's the very least we can do."
