I do not want the government telling me I have to take an unpaid day off to go do "service."
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

I actually approve of that. A day where all Americans connect with each other, as a reminder that they may try to cut you down, but the people are stronger than that. Why mourn when you can celebrate and stick two fingers up at your enemies at the same time.

Because the "day of service" stuff is coming from Obama and his damned socialist crap.  People should be able to observe 911 as they see fit.

Who's forcing you? I just think it's a nice gesture, like dressing the graves for Veterans Day and Memorial Day.

Those actions appropriately memorialize the event. On Veterans Day and Memorial Day it is appropriate to honor the military and those who died in service to their country. That's exactly why the holidays were created.

Taking a day off work to serve sandwiches to the homeless, while certainly a nice thing to do, has nothing to do with the murderous attacks of Sept. 11 and in no way honors the innocent victims nor commemorates their suffering. On the other hand, if we all took that day off to go to schools and educate the kiddies on  the evils of Islamic extremism and the stupidity of Western appeasement ...
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

I can't help but think de Blasio will shut the museum down because muslims might be offended by it.  He is that far left, after all.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
