Should the date of the 9/11 become a holiday (like Veteran's Day and Memorial Day)?
If yes, should it be a federal or state holiday?
It should be a day of remembrance, just like Pearl Harbor Day. But not a federal holiday.
A holiday is considered a day of celebration, why should we celebrate such a tragedy? No way! Maybe like aperturering said, a day of remembrance would be a lot more appropriate.
I'm with aperturering and bransonfan - by all means make it an American day of remembrance, like December 7th.
I think that 911 should certainly be remembered one day of the year in a special prayer service for all religions. It was a tragic happening of deceit and defiance and a show of what taliban is all about--terrorism, terrorism, and more terrorism-=---back to the wanton killings of the middle ages and no understanding for life and love of another person or for the brotherhood of another man. Chasia.
I don't think it should ever be considered a Holiday either...but yes, a "Day of Remembrance" such as Pearl Harbor Day is. Generations to come need to be reminded of what happened on that day, just as we always pause and reflect on Pearl Harbor Day and the devastation that occurred there. This is not something that needs to be "swept" under the rug.....
