Remembering 9/11

posted Sep 12, 2011, 10:27 AM by Kayla Owens
    I think that the plans for commemorating 9/11 were, mostly, very good, but some plans were a little tasteless. For instance, selling statues of the twin towers that light up is going a bit too far. People shouldn't just use what happened on 9/11 to get money, even if they do say that they are going to give some of the money to charity. It's just not something that anyone should do. The subject is still too fragile, and trying to get money from it can very easy turn into something disrespectful. People can all make their own decisions about what to do and what not to do for 9/11. They can either see it as something to respect and let pass or they can see it as something to make a profit off of. I don't think that it is right to try and make money off of 9/11 at all. I believe that, for that one day, we just need to remember what happened and the people that it has affected.
