* * *I did it. I wore a red shirt on a Friday specifically to "see whatever it is I'd see".
I wear my AF "wings" pin every day; Ssgt. Marunick gave them to me afer I helped with recruiting at V's HS and they're very special to me. I actually feel closer to Avivah when I wear them. Today I added my safety pin flag too. To make a point? To see if people would comment? I'm not certain. It looked good so I wore it.
Add to that, that I saw around 100 people between 10am and 3pm (our store has a HUGE sale going on) and I ran errands after work too so I think it was a decent 'sample'.
Survey says: I felt nothing different today vs. when I wear red shirts (I do it a lot, it's a good color on me) on any other day of the week. I didn't feel as though I was supporting my daughter or our troops. I didn't feel a part of a larger movement or noble statement. No one said anything or looked twice. I was a woman wearing a sweater that may as well have been olive drab.
I'm giving it another week or so and then I'll try doing it again. Maybe it's habit-forming?!
