Dude, as a building engineer in NYC, I was in NYC the day it happened and saw the towers go down from the roof of my building. Seeing the soot covered walk past me, the smell of gas in ther air. I can't forget.

I just wish the asssholes in Washington wouldn't either.

Fly the flag.

You should lower it to half-mast between sunrise and sunset.

not exactly proper to lower flag

Unless there is a proclamation by the President lowering the flag to half-staff in observation of 9/11 would be improper flag etiquette.

DANG SKIPPY! First thing I did when I bought my new home was install an American Flag on the front porch.

Although not the official guideline (we use the guidelines that are included in the box they are shipped in) used here in my work place (hospital) I found this: http://www.gettysburgflag.com/FlyFlagHalfMast.php

24/7 here as well. And just so others don't forget, I got a tattoo on my right arm. Nothing fancy, just "9/11/01".

Hey, just saying in case some people don't know....If you fly a Flag, you should never let the sun set on it. Either have a light on it when the sun starts setting or take it down. Don't fly a flag in the dark without it being lit up.

peace--
