Excuse for a moment the celebratory definition of of the word “holiday,” and call it what you will – a national day of mourning perhaps. But should the state of California, or the United States, give September 11th some sort of Federal recognition along the lines of Memorial Day?
Perhaps a day off for government employees and teachers. Maybe merely a standing order for flags to be lowered to half mast. Something to add permanent recognition to a date that none of will likely forget about in our lifetime? Or should 9/11 evolve year after year, allowing people to acknowledge the day in whatever fashion that best works for them?
