We spoke to lexington fire captain chris warren.

He feels this is not only a day to honor those lost.... but also serves as a reminder that we need to come together as a country.

I think we're so divided right now as a country, we need that feeling back, that we're all in the together as one country.

As long as we keep that memory alive and keep celebrating that and coming to the memorials, the stair climbs, we try to bridge that gap today as the focus for the country.

Dogs may be a man's best friend....but sometimes they may have issues that we can't a physical or emotional problem...including aggression.

Abc 36's alexus larson shows us how a yellow ribbon is being used to warn people that they need to ask before they pet.

"we see people walking their dogs in neighborhoods and in parks and many of us including myself want to go up and pet the dog but if you see a yellow ribbon on their leash... that's a sign that you should give the dog some space."

"good boy frankie."

Frankie is 14 months old - and his owner says he is quite lovable.... but if he doesn't know who you are... he can get scared and skittish.

"give him some space, give him some time, let him smell you, let him lick you and he'll be fine."

When frankie goes for his walk... he has this yellow ribbon on his leash - and it's all part of a global initiative.

Sitter critters in lexington brought the yellow dog project here at the beginning of september and the goal is to educate people that dogs need their space too.

"every dog reacts differently with strangers and not neccesarily reacting the same way in every situation."

Emily lunsford with sitter critters says there's a number of reasons why dogs have a yellow ribbon.

A dog could have health issues, be in training, or could be scared.

In frankie's case... he has it so he can warm up to people on his own time.

"i think this is good for him to have that yellow ribbon on him."

Lunsford also uses a yellow ribbon for her own dog.

She says tallulah is getting old and is losing her eyesight.

She says tallulah will get spooked if people suddenly show up.

"walk up slowly, announce yourself, let her sniff you before you try and pet her."

Next time you see a dog out and about... look at the leash... and if you see a yellow ribbon... remember that dog, just like frankie, might need a minute before he starts giving you some love.

Serena marshall tells us how in today's your health.

Many people are aware of the benefits of staying active and getting exercise.

But not many people know that they should also be working on their flexibility.

For a long time, people always thought that stretching was just for athletes who were training to compete.

But, in fact, it can actually help improve balance, reduce pain, and even prevent life- changing falls for older people.

A panel of experts along with the american college of sports medicine examined multiple different studies to help answer three questions about these activities.

So, what kind of stretching actually counts?

There are many types of flexibility exercises that people can do that works for all their major muscles and tendons.

Some of these include stretching by just holding certain positions, practicing yoga, or even tai chi.

How often should you stretch?

Healthy adults should do some form of activity that improves flexibility at least two to three times a week.

And how long should you hold a stretch?

For best results, work on each pose for at least 60 seconds altogether.

It is okay to break it up into shorter 15 or 20 second segments as well.

So make sure you get limber--so that you can stay healthier.
