RED FRIDAYS

I 'stole' this post from Lauren. Since my dear friend Laura (who's husband is in the Canadian Forces) told me about Red Fridays about 2 years ago, I have made a commitment to wear something red every Friday, usually a very bright blouse that I call my 'Red Friday blouse'. When I put it on I say a prayer for Josh, for my friend Ashley's brother who is serving in Afghanistan and for the countless others who sacrificially serve. I'm thankful to see that others are joining in the movement.

Will you wear red on Fridays?

RED FRIDAYS


Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing red every Friday.

The reason?

Canadians 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 liberal media coverage on TV, to reflect our message or our opinions. Many Canadians, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of Canadians 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 Canadian who supports our men and women afar will wear something red.

Let's make Canada on every Friday a sea of red.

If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family. It will not be long before Canada 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 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 something red every Friday.

WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, ONLY BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.
THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED ---- SO WEAR RED! ---
MAY GOD HELP CANADA TO BECOME ONE NATION, UNDER GOD.
