    I remember this. I got it by email a long time ago. Prett amazing.

    After 9/11 when the President signed the executive order to lower flags to half staff we complied at our fire station. We wanted to do something special for the day when the flags were to be raised again to their full glory, so we organized a program around the flag pole at our fire station. We had a state senator, county commisioner, and district judge each speak for a short time as well as some commentary by me when the speakers were introduced. The timing worked out really well so that as sunset approached and the flag (which was lit so it could fly at night) could be raised we hoisted the United States flag and sang the rousing hymn "A Might Fortress is Our God" led by the high school choir. I served as the M.C. for this event and it was very hard to contain tears thinking of the lives lost and the lives changed because of the terrible attack.

    I painted this little mural on my garage door 9/12/01.

    unfortunately it has since been taken down and scraped thanks to one of our local "Finest" or "boy in blew" deciding to back into the corner of my garage at high speed during a pursuit and buckling the door in May. :mad:

    From Budweiser. Word is, this was run, and WILL be run. only once, so that Anheiser-Busch is not deriving a profit from the tribute.
