William Bennett ’65 asks everyone to turn their finger purple.

With our troops, with our allies, and with the brave Iraqis, we look forward to a new birth of freedom in Iraq; and want to do what we can to show our soldiers, our allies, and — most importantly — the Iraqis, that we stand with them as they stand for themselves.

Starting on Monday, December 12th, I — and tens of thousands of others across America — will be marking my right index finger with purple ink to show those in Iraq we support them. Based on suggestions from listeners on my nationally syndicated radio show, I — and we — are asking you (to the degree physically feasible) to make available an ink pad or marker at your check-out counters for your customers, to mark their fingers with ink as they leave your store.

Let us all look forward to a day when all men, women, and children can live in freedom. Until then, let us do what we can for those that we can.

Indeed. Will you be painting your finger purple? If so, drop us a photo. We love everything purple here at EphBlog.
