Dear Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Cuomo,
It's important for us, as a city, a state and a nation, to honor and respect the heros (First Responders) for their sacrifices and the lives they saved on 9-11. We have parades for the Yankees, parades to celebrate culture-ethnicity, and sexual orientation, so why not honor the HERO's of 9/11? It is time to celebrate those men and women who put their lives on the line, to save the lives of strangers on the most tragic and heart wrenching day New York City has ever seen. Those men and women, the brave First Responders, deserve a thank you from the State of New York. They deserve a ticker day parade in New York City and it is time the city/state give this to them!
"It is time to show those, who never truly forgot, that we remember those that never forgot that saving a life was more important then their own!"-Unknown
