RED FRIDAY Please Read :)


I hope its okay to post this, if not just delete it,but I think this is a great idea. !

You will soon see a lot of people wearing Red on Fridays. Here's why..... The Americans, who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, and all their friends, simply want to recognize that Americans support our troops. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red -blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED. Word of mouth, press, TV -- let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University. If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee ! that it will not be long before theUSAwill be covered in RED - and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear Red! So let's get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays.I sent this out to everyone on my email list; hopefully, you will too. Please forward this to everyone you know!! Wear Red on Fridays

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD

Sandie - while I think it is okay to post this, if you know the source, you'll need to include that too.


This is a GREAT idea!! Wish I had known about it before getting dressed this morning!!

I bought a red shirt today at Wal-Mart specifically to start wearing on Fridays!!

It has a yellow ribbon on the front and underneath it has "Support Our Troops".

I'll definitely be wearing it this Friday!!

I just saw this. I don't have a true red, but I have one maroon shirt. I'll be wearing it and telling my neighbors. What a great idea. It doesn't shove our beliefs or politics into anyone's face. It just shows, to those who feel the same, that there are others who feel the same.

I had heard of this campaign but hadn't been observing it alot-I usually don't leave the house since I don't have to go to work. But I will try and start wearing red-in fact I was going to look at Wal~Mart tomorrow for a new shirt for the 4th. I will look for the red shirt that Abear bought with the yellow ribbon-I work at Wal~Mart and haven't seen those yet!
I will also pass this on and hope that everyone will start wearing red on Fridays until everyone comes home.
take care all.
