Show respect for this tragic day by NOT going to work or school
Some people will say that 9/11 is an "inappropriate" day to protest; that it should just be a day of quiet mourning or that we shouldn't "let the terrorists win" by doing anything different. Well the answer to this is: "What's more respectful to those who died: to go about your average daily business, school, work, etc. or to take a day off and reflect on the what happened that day?" And 9/11 was a national tragedy, trying to ignore it by doing your routine---shopping, school, work---is just avoidance and denial. This is a day that should be reserved for quiet thought, discussion, and/or dissent, depending on what feels right to you. But to act like this is a "normal day" seems dishonest and disrespectful.
I know not everyone can get out of work or school, but for those who can, you can make this a special day.
To all those who would feel uncomfortable in the streets on 9/11, please show your respect for the gravity of this day by staying home, mourning and reflecting on what happened six years ago and where our country has gone since then.
