Lest We Forget 9/11/2001

Dear Southwest Ranches Friends and Neighbors:

Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening and if I don’t see you later…well then…Good Night!

The attached is from a resident with spirit kindred with the Wanch!

Those of you who know me personally and have visited my home, you know I fly the American Flag 24 hours a day, lit properly at night and replaced when worn.

I do not always agree with the choices that our elected officials make for our Country, but I will never forget the sacrifices made by those who gave us the right to elect those officials and give them a chance to do the right thing.

Our Flag is simply material. The sacrifices that were made to make that symbol "awesome" should be remembered everyday because the material that is used to make that symbol "awesome" is very human.

If you don't have a Flag, get one. The price you'll have to pay to buy and fly the flag is nothing compared to the price that was paid to make it "awesome."

We have three days to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.

If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the same ... you get the idea.


On Friday, September 11th, 2009, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States.

Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this eighth anniversary of one of our country's worst tragedies. We do this to honor 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.

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.

Action Plan:

So, here's what we need you to do:

(1) Forward an email with this info to everyone you know (at least 11 people).
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!

That’s All Folks!!!

This was a beautiful reminder to pass along Wanch. I hope that your entire readership takes the advice and our wonderful Town of Southwest Ranches is "bathed" in a diplay of American Flags this Friday 9/11/09.
