    Poll: Should 9/11 become an official US holiday?

    Do you think we should dedicate a US holiday to 9/11? How many silly days are out there? Our govt. should really consider this an official holiday and in case of excessive holidays in our calendars, proceed to the remove other silly holidays such as Halloween and Valentine's Day.

    I know where you coming from, it will probably send a message of defeat to terrorists, but in reality we will be honoring our fallen heroes and all the military campaigns involved after.

    No, it shouldn't be a day of either hanging out and moping, or drinking beer and doing whatever. The country was brought to it's knees stopped in it's tracks that day. It should be a day just like any other day, capitalism, and democracy at it's best in full swing while each of us not only mourn our losses, but more importantly celebrate and honor the lives of the fallen.[IMG]http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/9062/avatar14348.jpg[/IMG]

    Officer Moira Smith was only the second policewoman killed in the line of duty in the history of the New York Police Department.

    Her name tag and shield were discovered near her remains, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

    Smith had been working in a Manhattan police station when the planes struck the World Trade Center and she rushed down to the scene voluntarily.

    She was captured by a news photographer helping a bleeding man out of the burning south tower and heard over her police radio directing people to safety.

    Moments later the tower collapsed and she was killed, along with her police partner Robert Fazio.

    Workers are now excavating a six-storey high pile of debris - all that remains of the south tower, which collapsed first.

    When the remains of a uniformed officer are found all work is temporarily halted and the remains removed on a stretcher covered with an American flag while colleagues salute.

    :clapper:


    Tonight on World News on ABC, Diane Sawyer ended the show with a feature about these 9 year old kids who were either babies or born right after 9/11... and their fathers were all killed in the WTC.

    They asked one little boy about his dad and the kid couldn't even answer without crying. I was eating dinner while watching it and damned if I didn't start crying myself.

    This nation, especially this region, is still very hurt and angry. And some people don't understand why a 13 story mosque led by an insensitive, apparently greedy Imam built 2 blocks away might rub some people the wrong way?
