Mayor Bloomberg, You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself!
I am disgusted, appalled, disappointed, and most of all, angry at you Mayor Bloomberg!
Mayor Bloomberg is not inviting the first responder's to the upcoming ceremony on 9/11/2011. Why you ask? Space constraints. The families of the victims will and should be there. But, two Presidents and many other politicians will be there. Why should they be? Once again a 9/11 memorial is being used as a political photo-op arena which is self-serving. The first responders risked their lives to help others and many died as well. Where were all the politicians then?
Many of the first responders have even fallen sick since then. A lot of them are fighting for their lives and now not invited to this years memorial service? That is appalling.
Mind you, first responders were never invited to other memorial services. They have just shown up in the past. But, this is the 10th Anniversary of 9-11. An exception in this case won't be made? Are you saying they will be turned away if they just show up?
I hope they all show up!
