Last year out of respect for the numerous families in our area that lost loved ones in the WTC attack I did not work on Sept. 11. This year I did the houses of those that I know lost relatives today (Sept 10) to avoid being there tomorrow. This year I am planning on working the 11th. What is everyone else's plan?
I know around here (Metro NYC area) that it had a lot more personal impact than in other areas of the country. Did you work last year on the 11th?

We sympathize with those that lost loved ones. We pray for them, more so with tomorrow being the 11th.

last year we worked as will this year. Those that were mourning last year had said that they prefered that we go, all go about our daily lives in a united gathering of Americans showing those responsible that we will go on and that nothing they try to do will ever keep us down.

I have to tell you, there is some real hatred in some of the survivors.

I did work last Sept. 11, and will work tomorrow. I stopped working at 8:46 am when the first tower was hit. This year I will do the same.

Yeah, I will be working, but for example I have customers that lost a 25 yr old son and I sure don't want to go there on the 2yr anniv. of his passing. No thanks! It's more about not disturbing the peacefullness of the neighborhood that day as far as noise and all that goes. I say F the terrorists, I'll work that day no problem. I just want to be considerate of people who lost loved ones.

I just thought I would let you know that the rememberance dosn't stop at international waters.

Most people in Australia will have a moment of silence to pay respect to all those poor people.

There will be reruns of Sep 11 on TV all day today.

I just want to let you all know most of the world will be sharing those thoughts with you all.

zfrog,
I hope you have a nice card in the mail already or flowers planned for tomorrow.....

But more so, let's not forget all the things that brought us to now.

Zfrog, do you work on Dec 7th? Or any of the significant days in our history? There is more than 9/11 in our history...

We do not need to overreact to things and we have short memories. The victims relief fund, and the blood donations are good examples of how people overreact. :(

This issue is way too volatile and emotional for everyone,, to really get into it....

FSM, you certainly have the right to do whatever you want with the image of your American flag.

I for one , personally, do NOT want bug guts, dirt, grime, and other stuff splatter on any image of my flag. I think it deserves much better than that. Further I do not think at bumper level is appropriate.

AND I do not want my flag going down the road off an antenae at 60 miles an hour trashing it into threads -- for all you out there with one of those!
