Keep the 9/11 'Tribute in Light' shining bright

The 'Tribute in Light' was canceled because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, 9/11 Memorial and Museum spokesman Michael Frazier said.
'Nearly 40 people usually work in close proximity for several weeks to produce the 'Tribute in Light' each year.'.....
So we have to cancel an annual tradition to honor all the men and women who died that day and every day since then due to long term effects of 9/11, including soldiers who fought & died protecting this country after the terrorist attacks. But because 40 people "work in close proximity", Michael Frazier feels that's good enough not to turn the lights on? How about all the time spent deciding to keep the lights turned off, you use that time to figure out a solution to keep the lights on this year?
New Yorkers and the rest of this country have the power to make a statement and let it be known that we ourselves are willing to put masks & gloves on and turn on the lights if those 40 do not want to get the job done.
By cancelling those lights this year, you are telling New York and the rest of America that you don't care about the victims and their families.
We swore to NEVER FORGET that day and the people we lost, but Michael Frazier and the partners of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum (who were consulted on cancelling the lights this year), CLEARLY FORGOT!
If you believe that those lights should shine bright in lower Manhattan, this year especially, on 9/11, then I ask you to please sign this petition and let us show the 9/11 Memorial & Museum that New Yorkers and America are willing to sacrifice a little to honor those who sacrificed everything.
