Yellow Ribbons Campaign
I heard yesterday that anti-war
demonstrators in Oregon are burning our country's flag and threatening
the lives of our fire fighters &
police officers for displaying
Flag. (There has been
great violence done already, to the extent that city officials are actually
removing our National Flag to protect the lives of these men & women.)
I know it is their American
right because of Freedom of Speech . . . but it sickens my stomach to even
think about such ignorance. Ignorance? Yes! Ignorance!
These demonstrators are "against war" but are threatening to "kill" innocent
public servants . . . they are making "war" right in their own city/town.
Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture . . . or am I the
Anyway, the broadcast reminded
during the Gulf War in 1991,
a cry was sent
out across our nation, to
ribbons, to let our soldiers
know that we supported & loved them. (From the old song:
"Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree"
It was my understanding, that
rallied together to tie yellow
ribbons, in hopes to counteract any anti-war demonstations, like above
and similar to those that occured during the Vietnam War. (At the
end of Vietnam, our soldiers returning home, were spit on, mocked, rejected,
etc. They did not receive any respect, appreciation or the big parades
to welcome them home as other soldiers in prior wars. It was despicable,
how they were treated.)
Americans wanted our soldiers
in the Gulf War to know that:
we may not agree with war . . .
DO support, love & appreciate our troops."
Let's do it again.
OPERATION TIE A YELLOW RIBBON
I want to encourage all of
you to tie yellow ribbons on your:
Trees in your yard Etc.
AND then . . . PLEASE PASS
THIS ON. (The only great thing that might happen, if
you forward this. . . is that Americans might
UNITE . . . once again . .
. for a CAUSE.)
No. Maybe it will not
STOP the demonstrations.
But, MAYBE it will boost the
morale of our troops, as well as, our public servants here at home.
