Proud To Be An American


September 11 is a day Americans will never forget. We all stood in shock as we watched our country being attacked right before our eyes. We gathered together to pray and to encourage one another. We all flew our flags. We were proud to be Americans.

Let us never forget the cost of freedom. This is a great country. Let’s keep it that way.

Just for today I wanted to play this song.

Make sure you fly your flag today if you have one. Be proud to be an American!

And if anyone in your family have ever served in the military, please let them know how much my family and I appreciate their service to their country.

  1. Hi Rhondi!

    Quick story:

    The week after 911 I heard that the prisoners in fed-prisons had no flags i there so they were making there own... so I hosted a neighbor hood flag painting send them some from us!

    Thanks for your post and your soooo appreciated visit today!

    love, kelee

  2. I am also very proud to be an American, proud of our constitution, and the men and women that gave their lives to defend our freedom. On this horrible day, Americans demonstrated their compassion and caring spirits as they came together to help those in need, to pray for each other and for our nation...all on their own, without being required to do so. Now the American people are fighting for their own freedom...I pray we win this battle. Our flag is already waving! Thanks for this great post. Mary

  3. My husband is a military vet...we fly our flag every day! Great post!~Patti

  4. Hello Rhondi, I read your thankful Thursday and it was such a sweet post. We have so many blessings don't we?

    My post today was a reminder to fly our flags for 9/11. I think your post for 9/11 is right on. Americans need to fly their flags for freedom from terrorists. I will be flying mine high.

    God bless America.


  5. Hi Rhondi,

    I agree so much with you. Our flag is always up and flying. We are so proud of the Men and Women serving in our Country. My Hubby is a Vet.


  6. Great post Rhondi. The whole world changed on that day. We must never forget.

  7. Our flag is always out. Always showing our pride in this beautiful country! Enjoy your day!

  8. thanks for reminding me to put my flag out today. God Bless Us All. This is one of my favorite songs. I saw Lee Greenwood sing it in person once. It was great.

  9. We fly it proudly here on the Ponderosa. What a tragic day that will always be etched in our minds. I remember those who lost loved ones in that horrific attack daily. Thanks so your precious post. God bless!!!

  10. May we be forever united.

    Thank you, Rhondi.

  11. Thanks . For you nice comment on my blog.

  12. Well put...we should all celebrate being strong, proud, Americans!

  13. My flag has flown outside the cottage door today.....and the memories flooded back each time I looked at it. That terrible day, may it never be repeated. My brother-in-law escaped the Pentagon where he worked just before the plane hit.

    God Bless America.

  14. Rhondi, Great post! I hope we the people of this great country never forget that day and that we continue to protect our freedoms everyday.
