flag flying

I dislike flags. Can’t understand why people put all sorts of flags up all over their yards. I mean, used to be an american flag on the 4th of July and that was about all you ever saw. Now you see bunny flags, dog flags, easter egg flags, all sorts of flags from the tacky to the overly sentimental. Is this some way for people to feel connected to the world? “Hi! I live here. See my flag proclaiming ducks. I like ducks! How about you?”
anyway…I got this from a friend:

FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE forward this email immediately to everyone in your address book asking them to also forward it.
We have a little less than one week and counting 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 Monday, September 11th, 2006, 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 fifth anniversary of one of our country’s worst tragedies. We do this in 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.
