After 9-11 ~ Old Glory Finds A Permanent Place


Until that dreadful day, we never flew the flag at our house. No reason, expect maybe too concerned with other things.

But everything changed that day.

Except in inclement weather, we now fly the flag every single day at our house. And it still makes my heart swell, whenever I round the corner and see it swaying in the breeze.

  1. That is awesome. A daily reminder of something we should always remember and the freedom we should never take for granted. Thanks for sharing this tribute.

  2. Having a dad, who served in WWII, makes me have respect and appreciate what the flag represents.

  4. I took the flag down after Labor Day, Dayle, but should go put it back out right now, in remembrance of 9/11. Thanks for the reminder. Susan
