For the past 11 years, my family has put flags in our front yard to remember the victims of the 9/11 attacks and to honor the first responders. My husband, Mike, and my son, Ryan, completed this task last night. However, when we woke up this morning, our flags that were so strategically placed in our front yard were gone. Only one was left in the hedge by our mailbox.
These flags were not expensive, but the point is that the person or persons who took them knew that today was a day not one American will ever forget. My family and I are proud to be Americans and show it by displaying these flags yearly. We just hope that whoever took these flags in the dark of night is proud to be an American, too.
