    They were trying to call it "Patriot Day" when Bush was president.

    Much like Memorial Day is and should be a day of remembrance... there is no need to politicize 9/11 into some 'do for the state' day

    Desecrate?!

    Oh bite me.

    A national day of service would be an homage to the memory of that day

    Only a fucking neo-con could pervert a noble idea like this by thinking it desecrates the memory of that day.

    How is it homage unless you are serving the victims of 911 or survivors?

    I never said "desecrate", and I agree that's a bad choice of words.

    And yet the article you chose to post used exactly that ignorant word.

    If Bush had done it, you'd be saying "what a great idea".

    You nutters are seriously pathetic.

    Yes... calling for work to be done for 'the state' is a great way to remember those who senselessly lost their lives in the name of terrorism :rolleyes:

    And Jill.. If Bush would have proposed something like this.. I would have been against it too.. a bad idea is a bad idea

    9/11 is remembered just fine. A lot of people got murdered by terrorists where I live... should it be a greater source of our national identity than Timothy McVeigh's attack on the Federal building in Oklahoma? Should Israel commemorate every terrorist attack on its soil?

    9/11 was a horrible thing. Probably the worst day of my life to date... (knock wood) but it shouldn't define us. And there's nothing wrong with remembering what they attacked...which was country. I think there's a warped sensibility around 9/11.
