    Thumbs up Re: wearing red on fridays

    Here is a similar story I received. Red on Fridays it is


    *Last week I was in Atlanta, Georgia attending a conference. While in the airport, returning home, I heard several people behind me
    beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed
    one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen.

    Moving thru the terminal was a group of soldiers in their camo's, as
    they began heading to their gate everyone (well almost everyone) was
    abruptly to their feet with their hands waving and cheering. When I saw
    the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and cheered for it
    hit me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only red blooded American who still
    loves this country and supports our troops and their families.

    Of course I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young
    unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday so we can go to school, work and home without fear or reprisal. Just when I
    thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men
    a women and a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old, ran up to one of
    male soldiers. He kneeled down and said "hi," the little girl then
    asked him if he would give something to her daddy for her. The young
    soldier, he didn't look any older than maybe 22, said he would try and
    what did she want to give to her daddy. Then suddenly the little girl
    grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the biggest hug she could
    muster and then kissed him on the cheek.

    The mother of the little girl, who said her daughters name was Courtney,
    told the young soldier that her husband was a Marine and had been in
    Iraq for 11 months now. As the mom was explaining how much her daughter,
    Courtney, missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up.

    When this temporarily single mom was done explaining her situation, all
    of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second. Then one of the
    other servicemen pulled out a military looking walkie-talkie. They
    started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it.

    After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to
    Courtney, bent down and said this to her, "I spoke to your daddy and he
    told me to give this to you." He then hugged this little girl that he
    had just met and gave her a kiss on the cheek. He finished by saying
    "your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and
    he is coming home very soon."

    The mom at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young
    soldier stood to his feet he saluted Courtney and her mom. I was
    standing no more than 6 feet away from this entire event unfolded. As
    the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people resumed
    their applause.

    As I stood there applauding and looked around, there were very few dry
    eyes, including my own. That young soldier in one last act of
    selflessness, turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear
    rolling down his cheek.

    We need to remember everyday all of our soldiers and then thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it's
    good to be an American.

    Red Friday

    Just keeping you "in the loop" so you'll know what's going on in case
    this takes off.

    RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing
    red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to
    be called the "silent majority". We are no longer silent, and are
    voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers.
    We are not organized, boisterous or over-bearing. We get no liberal
    media coverage on TV, to reflect our message or our opinions.

    Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to
    recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our
    idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and
    respect starts this Friday -and continues each and every Friday until
    the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that.. Every
    red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar will wear
    something red.

    By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every
    Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the

    If every one of us who loves this country will share this with
    acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family. It will not be long
    before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the
    once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more
    than the media lets on.

    The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make things
    better for you?" is...We need your support and your prayers.

    Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and
    wear something red every Friday.
    They call me BUBBA like one of them big ol' redneck boys............Can you believe that???
