9/11 - Remember Our Heros

12 Signatures Goal: 100

Something just doesn't seem right about this. Every year we get off of school because of Martin Luther King Jr. and Presidents' Day, but not for September 11th Yes, Martin Luther King did accomplish very many life altering things, as did our past presidents, but shouldn't we also honor those lost on that tragic day The innocent bystanders on the planes, in and around the buildings, and the brave fire and police men and women who helped pull victims from the rubble and take control of the situations when the country was drowning in chaos; we should honor their lives with more than just a 30 stand of partial silence in our schools. We honor our past presidents. We honor Martin Luther King. Why can't we do the same for our fallen heros. A census shows that, excluding the 19 hijackers, a confirmed 2,973 people died and another 24 remain listed as missing to this day. Including 246 on the four planes, 2602 in New York City in the towers and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. Among the fatalities were 343 New York City Fire Department firefighters, 23 New York City Police Department officers, and 37 Port Authority police officers. [This information comes from "JackDanielsU" at http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/] So please, if you feel that it's only right to honor our fallen family members, friends and heros; please sign. They deserve a day to be remembered by.
