9/11 First Responders Denied Invitation to 10th Anniversary Event

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the September 11th tragedy. In honor of that day and the people who lost their lives, a special event will take place at the 9/11 National Memorial. But a group of  people who deserve to be there weren’t even invited.

Emergency workers and first responders who helped with the rescue and recovery efforts that day were not invited to this memorial event. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has confirmed that the day will be only for the families of those lost in the attacks. Mayor Bloomberg will be in attendance at the event, as well as former President George W. Bush, former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani, and President Barack Obama.

I’m all for having an event that honors the families of the 9/11 victims, don’t get me wrong. But especially on the 10th anniversary of the attacks, not extending an invitation to the people who risked their lives to save as many as they could seems callous. These men and women are heroes, shouldn’t they get at least a little recognition on this day?
