9/11 family voices

Arthur Chrenkoff has the piece that everyone has been waiting for.

He quotes from and opines on an open letter from '911 families for America. It is a very good read and an important one.

For many bloggers, writing about the 9/11 families and their political views has been somewhat of a taboo subject.

The fact of the matter is, 9/11 was an American tragedy. That day changed our country and the world.

Like Pearl Harbor and Veterans Day, 9/11 commemorates horror and tragedies that affected us all. In the same way that the families of those tragic days and wars do not 'own' that day, 9/11 is also a day shared by all.

The day is not 'owned' by anyone or any one particular ideology. To imply so is to lessen the significance of that moning in September.
