10th Anniversary of 9/11

posted Sep 12, 2011, 10:25 AM by Katie Lewis
9/11 is a big day that affected so many people in America. It is a day that does not need to be disrespected in any way. I do not think that any one needs to be advertising for it or making money from it in any way.  The memorial that they made in place of the towers in New York City is enough in my eyes. There is no need for people to be making money off of what happened that day. Companies are making things such as wine glasses about that day, and they only donate ten percent to the memorial. I think its rediculous that we want money so bad that we will advertise about a day that has hurt so many people. I think if you want to know anything about 9/11, you just need to go to the memorial and learn about it all. I do not personally know someone that passed away on that day, but there are so many familes and people that lost loved ones on that day, and we should respect them and think about them before we start selling things  about that day. I do not think they would like to hear about people making money off of the loved ones they lost. I think some people and companies have taken this issue way to far, and we need to realize that it is not about us and how much money we can make.
September 11th, 2001 is a day that opened many eyes of Americans. We need to be thankful for every minute that we have, because something so destructive and heartbreaking can happen in a blink of an eye.
