Red Shirt Fridays

Red Fridays.

Americans who supported our troops used to be called the 'silent majority.' We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing. However, We shall no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday.

Why? Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday, -- and continues each and every Friday until ALL the troops come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something red. (A shirt, blouse, pants, dress, jacket- just show off your red.)

By word of mouth, press, TV - let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.

If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once 'silent' majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

The first thing a Soldier or Marine says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is, ''We need your prayers and your support.'' So, let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.
