Remembering 9/11

    I think that commemorating 9/11 was a good idea, but not by letting people sell things and make profit off of their items.  The people that are only giving about 10% to the 9/11 memorial be ashamed.  The companies or people selling things for 9/11 should give at least 50% if not all of the money they receive. 
    I believe that giving them only 10% is not near enough.  I feel like 45-55% of the profit they make is a good amount to give to the memorial.  I think the person that should make that decision is the person selling the items or whoever is in charge of the company. 9/11 should be a day of remembering and helping not making money off of what happened and barely giving the actual 9/11 event the money.
