    9/11 was a horrible event. The cost in human lives was unacceptable. As an American I have to despise the thought of those acts of terrorism.....It kills me though, to know that if the U.S.A. had simply helped the Afghanis to get on their feet instead of deserting them the way we did (in the 1980's), this could have been avoided. This country takes honor and charity with a grain of salt. We do not follow through unless it is in our best interest. Unfortunately the result of this is that we are hated and terrorized by those who have not the money or numbers to declare outright war against us. None of the 9/11 victims deserved to die, nor did any of their family or friends need to suffer those losses, BUT America, as an entity has earned (in this writers opinon) a outright slap in the face from the world...I love my parents, but if they decide to kill our neighbors I have to think that they may belong in jail.....it does not mean that I love them less.

    Which is correct 911 or nine eleven, I see it both ways. To me 911 is correct.

    Fed, over 3 thousand people died in terror attacks on US soil in 3 locations on 911. We are not celebrating death and destruction. Rather we are honoring those precious lives lost on that day. God Bless America!!!

    Did anyone get pictures of the helicopter flying with the flag over the park?

    It is time to get over it and move on. Why does our society have to celebrate death and distruction? If you want a national day set aside for 9-11, then there should also be a day set aside for the Civil War, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, etc. Why is 9-11 any different that the previous wars. We don't need another holiday...it is time for America to get out of the war and move on.

      There isn't a national holiday for Pearl Harbor so why does this deserve one? Both are just as bad as the other.

    I agree John. It was the worst terror attack on US soil. There should be a national holiday to mark its historical significance.

    Perhaps the 2nd Monday of September should be set aside where all businesses activity ceases and we honor those fallen on that day of infamy.

    God bless the families of those who've lost someone on 9/11 or lost a solider fighting overseas as an aftermath of the attacks. We shall never forget the tragic day that changed America, forever. Patriot, you're the 2nd person I've seen who has something kind of conspiracy theory about the attacks... Just shut up, let the families live their lives and let those who've passed, Rest In Peace. It's that simple. RIP to ALL of the fallen angels.
