On 9/11/01 terrorist attacks ended the lives of 2996 people. Many more might have died if it hadn’t been for the brave firemen and policemen that voluntarily went in to save them, many of those brave souls lost their lives doing so. Yet on the 10th anniversary of that tragedy first responders are told they are not invited to the ceremony and to NOT come because there is NO ROOM for them.

A steel cross that formed naturally in the rubble of the World Trade Center gave peace and hope to the survivors and the many of the nation. Now there are those who have decided there is no room for it, or a Star of David made from the beams, at the memorial. Yet plans move forward for a mosque and cultural center at the World Trade Center site.

Today it has been announced there will be no religious leaders of any faith included in the ceremony. Those who excluded those first responder heroes have now decided there will be no prayer service at the ceremony.

In a nation that has been built on the lives of our heroes and the faith of those heroes I for one find all of this appalling. In my opinion it is a slap in the face to everyone in the nation who was touched in any way by the tragedy that will forever be known as 9/11.


  1. I am just sick about this.... How quickly our government forgets .....

  2. I'm furious about it myself. In my opinion God formed that cross, the heroes need to be honored and forget the dadburn politicians. Where much of the ceremonies are to take place was damaged by the earthquake, makes you wonder who else might be pissed doesn't it?
