I LOVE these people!!!
The "Bayshore Patriots" were formed in Tampa, Florida from an outpouring of support for our country following the tragic events of 9/11/01.
On Friday afternoons following 9/11/01, patriotic Americans joined together at Bay to Bay and Bayshore Boulevards to wave their flags in support of our country.
The group was named the "Bayshore Patriots" by local media as their Friday afternoon efforts were well received by the community as they drove home from work.
As the City of Tampa developed plans for the one-year anniversary of 9/11/01, an event was created which expanded upon the "Bayshore Patriot" concept, and invited and registered tens of thousands of Americans to join the Bayshore Patriots on Bayshore Boulevard with their flags in a solemn event … "Flags Along the Bayshore: Tampa Remembers 9/11". It was one of the largest remembrance events in the country on 9/11/02.
Tens of thousands of Americans have now joined the Bayshore Patriot legacy here in Tampa. What began as a small group has expanded to include thousands, and continues with Bayshore Patriots on Bayshore each and every Friday afternoon, waving their flags in support of our country, our constitution and all those who serve and protect.
