Honoring Sept. 11, With Care

posted Sep 12, 2011, 10:28 AM by Kyle Weller
I think it is ridiculous that businesses are trying to make money off of 9/11. It was a tragic event that happened to us. I don't think we should be trying to exploit people and make money off of them. A lot of businesses do this though. For example, all those pink ribbons you put on the back of your car. Is it really people trying to raise awareness of Cancer, or is it people just trying to make money.
    I don't think this should be allowed. I know you cant make it a law or anything, but I wish the public would start an uproar about this.  If the businesses knew they couldn't get away with this then they would hopefully stop doing it. If the public would stop giving into these schemes then maybe the businesses would see how wrong it is.
