Take Back The Memorial

wtcmemorial_400.gif


Following up on Debra Burlingame's Wall Street Journal story "Stealing Ground Zero," several groups of 9/11 families and friends have decided to take their message straight to the people. Here's the very simple message of the groups holding a press conference and rally today at noon at Ground Zero (at the Corner of Church & Liberty).

For three long years we have played by the rules as set forth by Governor Pataki, Mayor Bloomberg and the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.

It got us nowhere.

We want a proper, fitting and respectful September 11th Memorial for the 3,000 innocent souls who perished that day. Not "a history lesson about tolerance."

The planners of the World Trade Center Memorial have been put on notice that we are going over their heads to make our case to the American people.

Please join us for a press conference and rally to kick off our national campaign to enlist the American people in a Fight for Ground Zero.

Our loved ones deserve no less.

No politics at Ground Zero. Period.

This whole idea of a freedom center as a buffer (which would serve as an entranceway to the 9/11 memorial) from the street to the memorial is insulting and embarassing to the memories and stories of that day. Who would even suggest such a thing that would distract from the horrors of 9/11.

This cartoon is awesome, it illustrates the exact thing I don't want to be subjected to the one day in the future that I bring my 5 month old daughter to this site. I want her to learn what happened that day, not about the history of freedom and man's inhumanity to man. Build that center somewhere else, it has no business here. I hope this press conference serves its intended purpose well and informs everyone of the insanity of this project.

Being the liberal that I am, I must agree no politics at ground zero. I am saddened that it has already been turned into a tourist attraction.

The problem with that is that, to some people, not blaming America is politics.


It's been pretty weird watching that come to pass over the last 4 years.

jpe:

So how does one reconcile the "attack on freedom" idea with the attack on the freedom museum. If 9/11 was an attack on freedom, then the museum makes sense.
