Do you think schools and businesses in the U.S. should be allowed to close on 9/11 like a holiday? Here are my pros and cons...my pros are that we should have it as a national holiday, but not in the traditional sense. We would not celebrate the holiday, we would recognize all who lost their lives on this horrific day. Now my cons...I also feel that we should just go on with our everyday lives. Let's not give any satisfaction to anyone by showing that they have gotten to us, and let's continue as we normally would. Let our actions of celebrating freedom show that we as a country can overcome anything and continue living in freedom. So I guess I wouldn't mind it if it became a holiday or not. What do you think?
