Patriotism is widespread in response to the events that occurred on Tuesday morning, anymore the stars and stripes aren’t so easy to come by. There seems to be a sudden shortage.
People everywhere have been purchasing anything and everything that resembles an American Flag to show their support for the support for the country. Since there is such a demand for flags, most local stores have completely sold out. Most stores sold small flags and even some that could be put on cars. K-Mart and the local Army Navy Store sold out immediately after the tragedy occurred. Even Wal-Mart to the disappointment of many, had to inform those looking for flags that there would be no more until early next week. The K-Mart Corporation ordered more flags to be made on Thursday, and the head of the company stated that more flags will be available by tomorrow morning. Other stores may not receive more until late next week.
