You bet! Mine is attached to my house though so, I have to use the black Mourning Ribbon on days we are to fly the flag at half-staff.

One of these days I will have someone install a flagpole like you have for me down by the lake. A couple of my neighbors are USAFA grads who have them and they look so nice reflecting on the water.

My flag is always flying. I do not have the ability to lower it. 

911 will never be forgotten just like so many other things that have happened in and to America since that day, will also not be forgotten. The terrorists live among us.  Some live in lavish houses.  I will leave it at that. 

I am a huge supporter of Tunnel to Towers.  Every. Single. Time. I see an advertisement for that organization. I tear up. Every. Single. Time. 

It is not just the fallen heroes, it is the families they leave behind. 

AND, YES, all of the INNOCENT lives on 911 - unthinkable and yet not forgetable at the same time.

I don't have any flags at my home, but this is certainly a day in the past that will never be forgotten.

I don't have the ability to fly a flag that would be at half mast... our flag poles have to be attached to the house.

Bob- We proudly fly our flag but it is mounted to a tree. Thank you Debe Maxwell, CRS for your comment because I was not aware that you could do this.

It is, used to do what Debe does, but moved it to a flag pole just before the 4th of July this year.

We are in a condo so don't have a way to fly the flag but there is a large flag at the main driveway as you enter the complex. I will check if it is at half mast.

I posted a blog about the events of September 11th this morning asking where people were when they heard the news. It's an annual tribute that I do so that day is never forgotten.

If you have a flag, this is a day to fly it at half-staff.

Rest in peace to the many innocent men, women, and children who died on this day.  And, salute to the firemen, rescuers, and police officers in New York City who performed their jobs with valor.


As for the people who carried out these well-planned attacks, and how WTC Building 7 collapsed, we can talk about that later.

Our flag was shredded during high winds last week and needs replaced, otherwise, it would be at half-mast, as in the past, Bob. The enormity of the horrific events  on 9/11 is forever etched in our memory and my heart continues to break for those lives lost and the families that had to go on without them!

Very nice! We don't have a flag up but I am thinking of those whose lives we lost and the responders. 

It also dawned on me that there are those who don't remember because they're too young.

It is hard for me not to forget that day, where I was, what I was doing.  It definitely affected my life, not to the extent that it did for those who were lost.  We must never forget.

In our neighborhood, the HOA rules say a flag has to be mounted on the home, and cannot have a flag pole.   We shall never forget this day, no matter how many years pass.

A day no one will forget. I can't remember what happened last week and yet I can tell you where I was and what I was doing that morning like it was yesterday not 22 years ago.

Yes we've had our house flag out all weekend long.  But since it's attached to the house we can't fly half-mast.  Thanks Debe Maxwell, CRS for telling us about the black ribbons.  I didn't know that.

In our neighborhood, flags are mounted at the front entrance of homes and can not be lowered.

We are in process of replacing our flag as it was getting tattered ... but if we had it up we would be remembering by having the flag at half mast.  In the meantime, I have responded and/or posted a few posts today Remembering 9-1-1.  Thank you the reminder Bob "RealMan" Timm

We will never forget seems to be fading year after year as it should.  We should be preparing for the next attempt rather than dwelling of the pain of the past.
