Wearing RED on
FRIDAYS symbolically shows the colour of the blood shed for our freedom.
This memorial site is dedicated to all those that have shed their blood
for our freedom. The mission is to show every Friday a sea of RED
walking amongst us demonstrating that we care for those we have lost, we
care for those who have been hurt, for those in harms way to protect our
way of life.
It is a simple gesture to wear something RED on Fridays but we can assure the impact to yourself is very profound. You begin to think of the people that have paid the price for your freedom, you realize that you have been taking for granted our peaceful nation. The most amazing part of this action is that it is impartial to ethnic or racial background. Freedom is colourless; it is not based on your education, religion, age or sexuality. We are truly a free country and we have so much to be thankful for to those who have fought or currently fighting to maintain our freedom.
If you feel these soldiers who dies for our Country and our mission of peace is important to yourself, wear RED on Fridays. Take that little step to show you do care and are appreciative of our Nations' resolve. Our dreams can be yours too; the sight of RED on Fridays symbolizing our faith and thankfulness to our troops and citizens that fight for our freedom.
