just a short question from a reader in Deutschland (thats me): Do you have a link for me with a photograph of some ad or sign with this slogan "if you see something say something" - would like to show this to some friends, who don't believe that THAT is the thinking in america [...]
Keep up the great work - it's inspiring to me.
There are so many of these signs, and they are on buses and inside subway stations as well. The first one is of a "See Something" sign on a huge backpack inside a Cambridge, Massachusetts subway station:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.
