Because they think this…
is an appropriate way to memorialize this…
It’s not. It’s shameful.
Just so you know, the entirely inappropriate idea of turning the anniversary of the biggest attack on our nation’s soil since the War of 1812 into a “Day of Service” is an orchestrated, cynical political ploy by Democrats who feared that remembering 9/11 would be of political benefit to Republicans, and so wanted to “take back 9/11” — apparently by ignoring it altogether, or at best giving it very short shrift.
A quick moment of silence, and then spend the rest of the day installing compact fluorescent light bulbs or recycling! Grrrr!
Don’t get me wrong. I am all for volunteerism (and not meaningless, time-wasting “green” volunteerism, but volunteerism that actually helps). And unlike Obama, I believe volunteering means volunteering, not being paid. But my response to Democrats’ outrageous “Day of Service” proposal, is the same as your parents told you when you were a small child and you asked them why there is a Mother’s Day and a Father’s Day but no “Children’s Day” — because every day is children’s day! Likewise, helping others is something we should be doing all year long, not on some designated holiday once a year. But if you make a “National Service Day” that is precisely what you promote: one day of service.
More importantly, remembering, and in so doing, comparing, the service of police and firefighters who lost their lives racing into towering infernos trying to save others by painting living rooms, is not honoring their service at ALL, it is a MOCKERY of their sacrifice! Not to mention a mockery of the attacks.
Oh, how I wish I had more time to blog about this. As you can tell, it’s got my dander up. The more I think about it the more incensed I am.
This must not stand. This must not become a national tradition. I expect Republicans, as soon as they get back in power, to restore the focus of this day where it should be, on the attacks and response to 9/11.
What do you think?
