The Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, wants to ban any clergy from the 911 10th Anniversary ceremonies to be held in the city. Faith groups were some of the 1st responders after 911. Bloomberg is going even further–it is leaked that NYC fire fighters will not be a part of the ceremonies either.
I believe we may have convincing data here from a story at CNN. The 4 points/facts from this article sound convincing to me. Here is a snippet.
David O’Brien couldn’t help himself. After the September 11 terrorist attacks, he became obsessed.
O’Brien read the stories of 9/11 victims over and over, stunned by what he was discovering.
He read about the firefighters who marched up the smoke-choked stairwells of the World Trade Center, though many knew they could die; the beloved priest killed while giving last rites as the twin towers collapsed; the passengers on hijacked planes who called their families one last time to say, “I love you.”
“I was obsessed with these stories,” says O’Brien, a Catholic historian at the University of Dayton in Ohio. “There were so many stories of self-sacrifice, not just by the first responders, but by people fleeing the building. There was this revelation of goodness.”
Today the United States pauses to remember the atrocity and horror of a day we all would love to forget: September 11, 2001. At exactly 9:46 AM the first plane hit the first tower. Then this happened:
Now we see this as the New York skyline.
Relatives of survivors are sadden by the memories of their loved ones. Others have a hope that they will see them again in the future–in God’s eternity.
