I agree with you Greg. I was hoping that folks would not respond to some of the posts on the AMC boards.
I will be hiking Eisenhower on Saturday as a way to honor and remember all of those who died last September 11, as well as all of those who have given so much of themselves to the recovery and healing process. For me, the flag is a visual symbol of that rememberance, and a way to honor all Americans. I don’t see anything political in it – (not like during the Vietnam War when flag-wavers definitely had a political agenda). I see this as a way to remember, to somehow show our support to those families who lost loved ones and that this show of support will, in some small way, help to ease their loss.
