Wear ribbons to show support for dead, nation

Friday, September 14, 2001

To the editor:

Do you remember our hostages in Iran, our boys in Desert Storm, the blowing up of the Challenger, AIDS victims, breast-cancer victims? We wore ribbons above our hearts to remember these people.

May I suggest that we all buy red, white and blue ribbons and wear them above our hearts to show our support for those who lost their lives Tuesday and to support our government in the actions that it will take.

I am a U.S. Navy reservist at the Naval Reserve Center in Cape Girardeau. I wore my ribbon today.
