Joyce's comment on 10 year anniversary of 9/11

Of course 9/11 was beyond horrific, and heart-breaking to all Americans. However, in retrospect, the current scenario is increasing in sadness and heartbreak. Instead of heeding a wake-up call, and stepping up to our patriotic duties, a number of distressing things are occurring. For starters, "first-responders," and their immediate families have been banned from 9/11 events.
Instead of being honored, they are being told that it would be best for them to be acknowledged at "some other" designated date or time. 9/11 will be a day for "dignitaries" to take over Ground Zero. Mayor Bloomberg is increasing the pain that lower Manhattan is experiencing by agreeing that a Mosque should be built a few feet from Ground Zero. Governor Cuomo is also selling our country out with his similar acceptance.
In addition, it was announced this week that the families of 9/11 victims will also be shunted to "another location," a few blocks away from Ground Zero, where they also would not be seen or heard on 9/11. Come on, people. Where is our national heart, pride and integrity? Why put up with this political terrorism and nonsense? The only people who should be honored on 9/11 are the heroes, both living and deceased, and their families. We are tired of dishonesty and political chicanery. Politicians have turned 9/11 in to one more photo op, and vote-grabbing opportunity. Our politicians should be very embarrassed, and ashamed of themselves.
