RED IS FOR VICTORY
WHITE IS FOR PURITY
BLUE IS FOR LOYALTY

I found this site and felt compelled to share it. Their goal is to get 4,000,000 Americans to digitally sign the Pledge of Allegiance online, one thousand for every man, woman and child killed by terrorists on September 11, 2001. Pending approval, these online signatures will then be displayed at Ground Zero in New York on the anniversary of 9-11 this year. This is one way we can show support for our country and its freedoms. By standing united, we are not only honoring the victims but also sending a strong message to the likes of Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Yassar Arafat.

I've pledged my allegiance and I encourage you to do the same. I personally feel that this is one small action we can take to help strengthen our collective resolve. If you feel the same, please share this with everyone you know.

The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! --Patrick Henry March 23,1775 "
