Red Fridays

RED FRIDAYS!  I am just now learning about wearing RED on Fridays to support our soldiers who are serving our country overseas.
Red Fridays is our way of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect and it starts today, and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home.  It is a day to send a message that every American supports our men and women and their families!
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 the USA is covered in RED and that all of our soldiers return home safely.
The first thing a soldier says when asked “What can we do to make things better for you” is We Need Your Support and Prayers!
As you may know, I have started a series of military paintings, and donate a percentage of the sale of the giclees to help returning men and women have a better life when they return home.
I am going to wear RED today and every Friday and I hope that you will do so as well.  The families of soldiers need our support too and when you see a soldier, tell them that you are behind them, and let them know that our country supports them in every way.
I love the color RED!
