9/11 Ten Years Later

posted Sep 12, 2011, 10:28 AM by Justin Coy
After reviewing the articles, create a blog post on your page answer the following questions:
What do you think about the plans for commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11?  How much is too much?  Who makes that decision?  What feels right?  What feels wrong?  Explain your thoughts.

I think that 9/11 should be a day of remembrance and contemplation, not just for the marketing companies to make a quick buck.  While TV specials and fundraisers are considered appropriate, i believe that commemorative bottles of Chardonnay is where we should draw the line. I think that companies should avoid marketing gimmicks on 9/11 because anything that they do could be considered self-serving and disrespectful.
