One Tuesday Morning

Tragedy launches three ordinary women from Maine on a 10 year-patriotic mission that proves that sometimes darkness can bring out your true colors.

One Tuesday Morning tells the remarkable story of how tragedy launched three average women from Maine on a 10-year patriotic journey of service and remembrance. After personally greeting over 100,000 troops on their way to war, and standing vigil outside EVERY single Tuesday morning since 9/11, the nationally-heralded Freeport Flag Ladies have redefined the term 'flag waver.' The film follows their transformation into Old Glory's three best friends, and along the way explores issues of patriotism, the meaning of the flag, and the consequences of war. The story is a celebration of the American spirit that animates these 3 retired women, who lead the little town of Freeport, Maine in a 10-year commemoration of 9/11 by organizing and dedicating a lasting memorial made of steel.

 

One Tuesday Morning was produced by Walter Skold
