RED FRIDAYS

THIS IS SOMETHING I READ ABOUT ON ANOTHER WEB SITE. THE DEAL IS THIS; EVERY FRIDAY WE WEAR A RED SHIRT TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR OUR TROOPS. NO SIGN WAVING OR YELLING, JUST WEARING A RED SHIRT EVERY FRIDAY SHOWS YOUR SUPPORT FOR OUR TROOPS SERVING OUR COUNTRY. THIS DOESN'T MEAN WE OR YOU HAVE TO SUPPORT THE WAR BUT WE DO ALL NEED TO SUPPORT THOSE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN THAT PUT THEMSELVES IN HARM'S WAY EVERY DAY IN DEFENSE OF OUR WAY OF LIFE. AMERICANS REALLY NEED TO REALIZE THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUPPORTING A WAR AND SUPPORTING OUR MILITARY PERSONNEL THAT HAVE DECIDED TO STAND FOR FREEDOM AND LIBERTY AT HOME AND ABROAD.

WE REALLY HOPE THIS CATCHES ON AND WE'LL SOON SEE A SEA OF RED EVERY FRIDAY UNTIL OUR TROOPS COME HOME.

BELOW IS A STORY ABOUT WHY WE FEEL SO STRONGLY ABOUT RED FRIDAYS.

Will you give this to my Daddy?

As a Company, Southwest Airlines is going to support 'Red Fridays.'

Last week I was in Atlanta , Georgia attending a conference. While I was 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 camos. 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 on ly 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 for us 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 and women, a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old ran up to one of the 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, who didn't look any older than maybe 22 himself, 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 daughter's 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 an d as the young soldier sto od to his feet, he saluted Courtney and her mom. I was standing no more than 6 feet away from this entire event.

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 their families and thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it's good to be an American.

RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops u sed to be called the 'silent majority'. We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record b reaking numbers.

We are not organized , boiste rous 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 bleachers.

If every one of us wh o 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.
