Acts of patriotism

Last Tuesday's terrorist attacks have prompted an outpouring of nationalist sentiment on a scale not seen since World War II. What is the most original or inspiring display of patriotism you've witnessed over the past week?

In church on Sunday the Mass ended with "America the Beautiful." It me proud.

The picture and sounds of the band at Buckingham Palace at the Changing of the Guards playing the Star Spangled Banner. Thanks Britain.
-John, Lexington

The passion in the messages left on this web site are among the many outstanding displays of patriotism I have seen.
-Tom, Readville

The most inspiring sign of patriotism that I have seen so far was the singing of the National Anthem by an inspired citizen when they hung the flag at the reopening of TF Green airport in Rhode Island. It brought me to tears.
-Morgan, Shrewsbury

There are too many to single out but one is the reopening of Cantor Fitzgerald after loosing two thirds of their employees in the WTC. They are the largest bond dealer in US treasuries...the government needs to sell treasuries to keep the economy afloat. I think we all need to invest in the US by buying US bonds and stocks in US companies. Do not panic -- buy and hold! If the US economy collapses Bin Laden wins. He actually had "puts" on the insurance companies insuring his targets. He fully intended to profit financially from his victims losses! He obviously planned to finance additional acts of terror this way. Let's not make it easy for him...get his money!

Votive candles in paper bags all along Revere Beach wall.

What I have seen is something that can not be seen by the naked eye or re-produced on television for the media to create shows on.. It is simply the common feeling in peoples hearts. The will to give. The will to help. The will to serve. Never in my young life have I witnessed anger in a patriotic way from 20-30 year olds. People want to fight for this country...When since WWII have we seen that.
-Jeff McPherson, Londonderry, N.H.

When I drove down Main St. Friday night and saw all those people standing out there holding flags and candles, it brought tears to my eyes. I thought it would just be on Main St. but when I turned down the side streets people where standing on every corner with candles. It really gave me a feeling of the country coming together.
-Jo, Brockton

The greatest act of heroism and patriotism thus far was those people on board the flight over Pennsylvania. It appears that they sacrificed themselves in order to protect thousands more on the ground. The courage of these people deserves a national monument in their honor at some point in the near future. We should all hope and pray that our whole country will display such courage in the coming months and years.
-Ben, Marshfield

Some people who live in Taunton (corner of Hart Street and Rte. 140) painted the side of their old barn into an American flag. Pretty cool. It's big!
