Happy Labor Day !

Happy Labor Day Loves !

I hope you are enjoying the holiday ! I am just lounging around, and I am about to finish the dishes and laundry.

The ten year anniversary for 9/11 is coming up and I am so very disappointed in New York Mayor Bloomberg.

A memorial is planned at the WTC site, but only the victims, families of the deceased and politicians are invited. I can't believe that the first response members such as the fire fighters, EMT and cops are not invited. All due to space contraints.

I verified this on snopes.

Bloomberg said that there would be a separate service for them at later date and location ? (But no dates were given) WTF ? I don't think there should be a memorial service without them present. I think the mayor has totally missed the point. I will not be watching the memorial service on TV.

Had the fire fighters, cops and EMT members NOT been present on 9/11/01, there would be more of a space issue because the would be way more victims. So disappointing.

What's also disappointing, is that religious services are taken out of the ceremony. People turned to God/religion during this time, and now the Mayor wants to get politcal ? Is he doing this to exclude Islamic services ? So that if there are no Christian or Jewish prayers, that Islamic services can't be offered either to keep it equal? I don't know. I think he's excluding relgion as to not offend the Muslim community.

Personally, I would like to see different religous services offered to show that we are still United as a country and embrace peace.

Anyway, I am stepping off my soap box. I had a whole nother post planned, but I felt that I just had to say my peace here.

Besitos !

It's true, and I am as disappointed as you are. These people risked (and many gave) their lives to rescue others and prevent an even bigger tragedy, and they're totally being sidelined. Way to go, Bloomberg.

Could not agree with you more. We should make 9/11 a national holiday.

I am not in the least religious but this would be a perfect time to show our chritian based philosophy.... a fuck you to islam
