I saw a boy riding an old red bicycle on the road to Liberty Tree Mall. A large American flag was attached to the bike frame. He was flashing the V sign with both hands as the flag waved behind.
-Mark Fisher, Marblehead

Some children on our street painted American flag pictures and put them on all the tress down the street. Heartwrenching realizing what has to be a part of our children's lives.
-Lauren, Wakefield

All the little children at the Center School, 3rd grade, making red, white and blue tall hats and wearing them all day. Many thanks to their teacher.
-Elizabeth Olivier, Everett

I saw a young man passing by stop and help a frail and elderly lady hang a 48-star flag on her fence. The flag had deep fold marks, and one triangular section was faded. I thought that that flag must have been a memorial presentation flag given to someone who lost a loved one long ago. Did that lady loose a husband or son in WWII or Korea? That she had chosen to share her precious memento at this moment was a gift beyond words or tears. That a stranger had stopped to help made it all the more poignant.
-Kim Salazar, Arlington

The most inspiring thing to me is to feel a nation grieving together and praying together. Never in my 39 years on this earth have I felt such power. Our hearts ache together and we are truly ..."one nation under God, indivisible..."
-Jan, Hull

All the young people rallying, collecting money, becoming involved ... many of us who are older questioned whether or not they were involved/connected to what happens around them. THEY ARE!
-Ed B., MetroWest

It's gotta be the 9-12 year olds in the Carolina's who sold lemonade in paper cups for $20 a pop... THAT my friends is Patriotism.
-Lisa, Medford

The reaction of other drivers in response to seeing flags on cars. Letting people cut in front of them in traffic simply because the car is flying an American flag.
-Jane, Boston

Hopefully this will put an end to all the bleeding hearts that want to grant asylum to all illegal aliens. This country has been living in a dreamworld far too long.
-Deke, Lexington

Just driving down a street and seeing flags everywhere, (I mean everywhere)!! Gives you goose bumps!
-Pat, Medford
