    i think that 9/11 should be a national holiday because if it was not for that day we would not be what we are today. I think the family’s will appreciate the fact that is a holiday. This will really help them

    i think that September 11th should not be a national holiday . I believe this because of safety. We are still at war with the terrorist. I think if you made September 11th a holiday that maybe the terrorist will try and attack again. Maybe this time they will try to attack the Empire state building, Also I am not sure we want to remember all the sadness of this day. It was a really horrible day, Planes attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Fireman tried to help people escape, but the buildings fell, and many died, even the firemen. I don’t think we should make it a National Holiday it is not safe and too sad.

  8. I believe that September 11th should be a national Holiday. There are many people who lost their fathers or mothers, or other family members on this day . These people wish they could see them. I think they would do anything to see them.
    They will never be able to see them, they are lost. Some children were so small when it happened they don’t remember seeing their parents only pictures.
    I think a holiday will make them feel better. Older brothers and sisters could teach the younger ones. They would say guess what today is? It is 9/11. This is a special day for mom or dad. That’s why I think it should be a holiday.

  9. I don’t think that 9/11 should be a holiday. The reason is it is just too sad. I don’t think a day just for this would really honor them.This is very sad and people need to remember but not with a holiday. They should remember it quietly.

    It was terrible what happened. I will never forget it but no holiday it is too sad.

  10. September 11th needs to be made a holiday because. Because something really important fell down.The Twin towers were attacked by terrorists using a plane as a bomb and because of this many people died. The Pentagon was also attacked by a plane on this day. This was a terrible day.
    This day has many heroes like the fireman. Some of them died being heroes. I think we need to remember it, if you don’t make it a holiday people will forget. These heroes should not be forgotten

  11. I think Sept. 11 should be a holiday. There are so many heroes and they should not be forgotten. This is a very sad day.
    On this day the Twin Towers fell down. Airplanes with terrorists in them crashed into the buildings. The buildings collapsed and thousands of people died.
    It is very important to remember this because the people who died were very important. They should not be forgotten.

  12. I think September 11th should be holiday. This day is important. On this day there was an attack. The Twin Towers fell down in Manhattan. Many people died. On this day some people were heroes and many of these heroes died. If one of these heroes were in my family I would want them to be remembered with a holiday.
    I think it should be made a holiday so we don’t forget them

  13. Nashawn I think that 9/11 should be a holdiay because many people lost their lives. There were heroes the day the Twin towers were attacked and they lost their lives and I think that was very wrong. Policemen and firemen who help us every day lost their lives and I think this was very wrong.

  14. I think that 9/11 be a holiday. On this day people died. On this day people saved other people. On 9/11 in New York city two planes attacked the biggest buildings. They fell down. Some people died, some were saved. Firefighters got dirt and glass in their eyes. One man helped another man get out of the building and now they are friends for life. One woman in a wheelchair was helped down by another man. People went in the buildings to save others and never came out.
    We need to remember all these people. It should be a holiday.

  15. I think Sept.11th should be a national holiday. We should honor our heroes. Just one story from that day was about a man named George who worked in the Twin towers, When the planes hit the buildings there was fires. George was trying to escape themselves but he stopped to clear a doorway so others could get out. He survived and so did the other people. Without George they would have died. Another woman in a wheelchair had no way of getting downstairs. a man helped her so she did not die.
    These people were very brave and we should remember them. That is why it should be a holiday.

    I think that 9/11 should be a national holiday.. On this terrible day people were killed when the World trade center and the Pentagon were attacked by planes. Many people lost their live and many people saved others lives. These people are called heroes.
    To be a hero is not easy. What they did was hard. One man ran in the building to save other people. A lot of firemen did this. These people are heroes. They are brave men and women. That is why September 11th should be a holiday to honor the dead and the heroes.
