    half staff flags today??

    It is my understanding that the flags are supposed to be at half staff today for rememberance of 9/11 correct? I am just curious because here at the local college I attend they are flying normal, and I see it as a sign of the times as we remember for a few years then the events just fade away again like they never happend. I certainly hope I am wrong but I thought they were supposed to be at half staff...

    I almost forgot myself...Got busy getting myself together for work and almost jumped in the car without running mine back up for the day. It was storming last night so I took it down(last time I didn't and it got torn up and had to go get a new one -lessons learned). I got mine just before I left for work this morning.

    So? Not to be a jerk, but who cares if its raining? I dont think those 3000 + lives do.
    Just go do it, be proud. It will draw attention to a day thats needs remembered.
    It reminds me once when I was in high school, I got in trouble for dropping the flag on 12/7. I served my detentions proudly.

    You sent an email???

    I routinely ignore my email at work!

    Call the main office and make sure you speak to a real live person!

    You should contact the local news station/paper and report it.
