To Add Insult to Injury......

Totally disgusting, IMO.  If anyone should be invited to the 10th anniversary ceremony it should be the NYFD and NYPD.  They were goiing INTO the Towers when people were leaving.  Those who are now serving in both these organizations lost their brothers and sisters on 9/11 and deserve to be there if they so choose.

Full article here.

They were the first ones on the scene when the towers fell on September 11, 2001, but ten years later, the 9/11 first responders are being told that they will not be invited to take part in this year’s ceremony at ground zero. The city announced that due to security and space issues, there’s no room for the first responders. Instead, they’ll be invited to a private ceremony on a different date
I am just shocked that those who serve and protect us are snubbed in such an awful way.  What an embarrassment.

One more thing, why does anyone need an 'invitation' to attend a ceremony remembering a horrific event that affected all of us?
WTF is that all about???

  1. It's no longer about the memory. It's about the pomp and photo ops. This makes me sick!
