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 Taunton at Hart's Four Corners there is a house that has a huge barn in the backyard. They have painted the American Flag on the barn and have it all lit up at night. It is beautiful.
Chris, Taunton

On Saturday morning, I was driving from Lynn, MA to Peabody, MA and on just about every corner there were a group of 2 to 3 kids, and in some cases as much as 10 kids on almost ever corner. Waving flags, holding signs "Honk if you love America". Before last Tuesday, children these days took a lot of critisizm about the way they act and dress. I think our children of America are hit hard with all that's happened and they arn't taking a back seat or being defiant. They are taking charge and inspiring people, especially me. Thank you to all those children on the corners. May you never loose that fire!
Smith, Lynn

Verizon has a building alongside the WTC. While others were running for their lives, one Verizon worker put on a New York Fire Department coat and ran into the crumbling buildings looking to help.
Brian, Peabody

I truly believe that the most original and inspiring act of patriotism thus far throughout these past events was ironically the plane crash in Pennsylvania. Not only did they attempt to save more lives than their own, but they stood up for the Stars & Stripes that so many of us often take for granted and let the entire world know that we will not go quietly into the night.
George, Needham

Americans treating other Americans with much more everyday respect.
Frank, Bedford

Three caravaning cars driving up and down Tremont and Columbus. All were displaying huge American flags and blaring the Rocky soundtrack.
Rod, Boston

On my way home last week I passed a Day care center. The kids at the center painted a poster of the American Flag. The red stripes were made by there hands dipped in paint. Seeing this brought a tear to my eye.
Steve, Bradford

Sunday, my mother, daughter and I passed a 'convoy' of Army vehicles on Rt 2. As I turned down the radio, I realized that most of the other vehicles on this road were beeping and waving to these wonderful, brave Americans, telling them that we love and appreciate all they have done and will be called to do. My Mom, who was 18 when Pearl Harbor was attacked, fought back tears as she waved to these heros and told us that she had hoped she would not see this again in her life time. Obviously history repeats itself.
Nancy, Hudson

The best thing I've seen is a banner over a bridge in New Jersey that says, 'WE ARE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN AND WE ARE NOT AFRAID.'
Jakes, N. Andover

I had drill this past weekend with the CT Army National Guard, where I needed to drive accross the entire state in a Humvee. People waved at the convoy, and for the first time in my 8 years in the Army either active or reserve, I felt fully supported.
Newt, Winthrop
