I was inspired by the man who painted the American Flag on his roof. What an excellent idea!!!
Eileen, Boston

A parade of high school kids driving through town with huge American flags flying over their trucks...Sounding the war cry!
Andrew, Westwood

Children in N.C. selling lemonade for $20 a cup in order to raise money for the Disaster Relief Fund. They raised $1,000 in one day.
Mark, Boston

I was in Starbuck's and this gentlemen (whom I had never seen before) insisted on purchasing my coffee. Amazing! I turned around and insisted on purchasing HIS coffee!
Marguerite, Boston

The most inspiring display of patriotism had to be the group from Foxboro who put together a caravan of trucks filled with food and other necessary goods, as well as 100 volunteers, and went to New York to help. I hope Americans do not lose this feeling.
Chris, Marshfield

One of the first and most moving sights was the American flag the firefighters hung right at the crash sight almost immediately.
John, Milford

I'm a Massachusetts native currently in London. Even the Queen cried over the pain for a country once considered the enemy.
Tara, London

One of my neighbors painted their car entirely in 3 large stripes; red, white, and blue. American flags were flying from all corners of the car. Seeing it drive by surprised me, but brought a smile to my face and those around me. I thought it was a creative way to show their love and support of this country.
Karyn, Leominster

It's all just amazing. I've never seen so many American flags...even on Independence Day. I think it was something we all took for granted. A lot of us have not been exposed to war, and we take the greatness of this country for granted. It's truly incredible to see this country united. It's just unfortunate that it took a tragedy of this magnitude to bring about that unity.
Kate from the Boston area

I saw a little boy standing on a highway overpass, waving an American Flag. When I drove by an hour later, he was still there, still waving the flag.
Sarah, Somerville
