    What's happened to the 9/11 memorial?

    This has me quite upset and wanted to get other opinions. I don't know about you, but Iwould go to this memorial to remember, reflect, and maybe even cry. It is a sad day in America when political correctness overrides this.

    From Wall Street Journal 6-8-05:

    I fully agree with the article, the freedom centre i simply using the memories of 9/11 to get people to see there point of view. Ground zero should be a place for memorials where people can go remember those who died. It shouldnt have anything to do with the freedom centre that can be put anywhere really. 9/11 isnt about freedom, its just that with afganistan and iraq that followed, now they are pushing the world wide freedom idea.

    I agree. The memorial should only be dedicated to 9/11 and nothing else.

    However, the article seems to hate this whole idea of "human rights" and fully supports the patriot act.

    Conclusion: 9/11 memorial should only be 9/11, but the article is pretty biased, although i expect it from that source.

    It's really pathetic if we put up a memorial to those who died on 9/11 and the focus isn't on those people who died or the brave people who gave their lives saving people. It could end up being the most tragic event of this century; something that should have a memorial for remembering and nothing else.

    I certainly wouldn't cry if such a false memorial were destroyed.

    That is a load of horse excrement. There should be something similar to what there is in D.C. a big wall with everyone's names engraved on it or other things in that line of thought.

    The memorial in NYC should be something along this tribute.
