I just received this chain letter from my mother.




When Norway was occupied by Germany in 1940, Norwegian women began to knit red caps for children as a way of letting everyone know that they did not like what was happening in their country. The result was that whenever Norwegians left their homes: to go to the store, to work, etc, they could see that the majority opposed what was going on in their country.

Many of us strongly oppose what this administration has done and we need to recognize each other very easily so we can see that thinking people are still the majority.

Please wear RED every Friday between now and election day. Wear a little or a lot --- just be sure that when you leave your house to go about your day --- to work, to school, to the store, to the gas station, wherever you go in your daily routine --- that everyone who sees you will see that you are wearing red because you don't approve of our current administration's policies.




I think it's an elegant idea. Pass it on.
