Red Friday

I got this in my e-mail the other day, and I've decided that I am certainly going to do it. It may just be a fruitless gesture, but you never know, some great movements and ideas have grown from tiny seeds. How about joining me?

RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing
Red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be
called the "silent majority". We are no longer silent, and are voicing our
love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not
organized, boisterous or over-bearing. We get no media coverage on TV, to
reflect our message or our opinions.

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 the troops all
come home, sending a deafening message that.. Every red-blooded American
who supports our men and women afar will wear something 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, co-workers, f riends, 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

The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make
things better for you?" is...We need your support and your prayers. Let's
get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and wear some
thing red every Friday.

I have been doing this for about 6 months now and everyone in the office has joined me. Seems like such a little thing to do but sometimes it is the little things...

My wife & I have been wearing Red on Friday's for 3 weeks. Last night a group from our church, all went to a movie then to a restaurant for a snack. The preacher, who also wears red allowed me to address the group of 28 on Red FRiday. I believe most of them will start. I hope it grows.
I don't want the men & women to come home from Iraq to the same garbage throwing, name calling we did from Nam.

I passed this on to a bunch of people, but one of my friends wrote back and said that because red is also a communist color, people might get confused. Does that make sense to anyone?

Do it for the troops and for Freedom's sake. The "Red,White & Blue" is not communist because of RED. And I'll be damned if they will take that color from me!!
