Let's Do This on Friday!!

 Talked with Jackie this morning and she had seen the following and thought it would be a great idea if we wore red this Friday.  She mistakenly thought it was for police officers.  That's okay....fire fighters are great too.


This got me to searching the internest to see if there was something out there for law enforcement.  Then I found this on facebook.

 
And I found this for fire fighters!
 
By proudly wearing and displaying blue and red ribbons pinned together or by participating in a memorial or recognition event, we can show our gratitude to firefighters everywhere.
The IFFD ribbons are linked to colours symbolic of the main elements firefighters work with – red for fire and blue for water. These colours also are internationally recognised as representing emergency service.


I also discovered wearing red on Fridays symbolizes support for our military,
 
 
Blue symbolizes support for law enforcement.
 
 
So ladies, let's wear red and blue on Friday.  A shirt, or earrings, or red and blues ribbons pinned to you shirt.  The item doesn't have to be blue/red...you can wear something blue and something else that's red or vice-versa!
Use your imagination and let's honor those who give their lives to keep us safe.
 
Thanks!!
See ya Friday!
