Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- October 5, 2001
Almost from the first strike, America and Melrose began to show its colors, and flags and bunting popped up as fast as that great, country-wide welling up of patriotism blossomed. Quietly the colors were presented, for in our sorrow and anger, we wanted to show the world that we are a nation, we are a people together, we are united in our dedication. And so it was, her in Melrose as two Stringers, Natalie Thomson and Bill Jodrey, recorded this flag happening--their photos appear here and on te following linked pages. Here is not just our city, but here is Hometown, USA. We are together, indivisible.
