Move America Forward is doing a national caravan from California (leaving on Thursday, March 8, 2007) to Washington, D.C. where they will join "The Gathering of Eagles" for a giant pro-troop rally on Saturday March 17, 2007.
Individuals and groups are invited to join them for part of the route or the entire caravan, or to attend one of their patriotic pro-troop rallies across the nation. At each stop they are asking participants to bring an American Flag (homemade or store-bought), which they will pack with the caravan and take it to Washington, D.C. They will use the flags to create a giant "Flag City" - a sea of red, white and blue patriotism to surround our war memorials and show that we will not turn our backs on our troops as they serve bravely overseas. Children can make homemade flags, people who knit can knit a flag, or you can bring a flag that has special meaning or significance to you, because these flags are going to be given to troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I will be flying to D.C. to join my sister and others at the rally on March 17th. I've been thinking about it for a couple of weeks, but I didn't decide until this morning. My sister sent me a copy of an article by Michelle Malkin at http://www.jewishworldreview.com/michelle/malkin022807.php3. I wrote and asked if she was going, and then I just invited myself along. :)
The other thing is, there is a caravan driving from California to D.C. that week. There will be stops along the way, so if you are close to one of the caravan's stops, they can use all the support and help they can get. Go to www.moveamericaforward.org for more information on the caravan, or to www.gatheringofeagles.org for more information on the rally itself.
