The people being memorialized were more than just victims.

Was the design ever altered, or this Memorial STILL a Mosque?

I watched a show on the History Channel until after 2:30 a.m. this morning. It focused on the search and rescue, the days that followed, interviews with the responders. There was a brief moment where an irate phone call to an Islam Center was played but I don't recall seeing too many volunteers, also shown, who were Muslims.

I don’t recall any either. Their first reaction was to worry (and whine) about “backlash.”

I see the program is running late. Since Bubba is supposed to be there, I assume he is the one running late. We know President Bush is never late.

The band has run out of pieces to play. They’re just sitting there on stage.

Okay, Bubba’s finally arrived.

CSPAN is showing it.

I would expect it in a camera pan of a Rush Limbaugh TV audience and to a lesser extent of a Tea Party gathering but why is this event so WHITE?

Of hundreds of attendees, I see only one black person. What drives this phenomenon?

I’d prefer a man of the cloth instead of some poet, but oh no can’t have that (unless one appears, then I will retract).

I don’t know.... I love the expression on President Bush’s face listening to this idiot speaker who worries about the insects who died in the downing of Flight 93. Unbelievable how tasteless this is so far....

The “poem” is a translation.... uh, from what language.
He couldn’t find an English-speaking writer to quote?
Get off the stage, idiot.

Were the Flight 93 Heroes awarded civilian Medals of Honor? If not, they should have been.

Why does ‘the poet’ read the names of the heroes? Doesn’t seem the right one for the honor.

I was doing other things but the poems I heard were not by Americans. Are there no American poems that would have been appropriate?

Considering that they want the crescent moon and star of Islam as the basis for this “memorial”, I am just thankful they dont have a freakin Muslim reading the names!

No, he doesn’t. At last, he has left the stage. I posted this because GWB announced on his facebook page he and Laura would be there. I only want to hear him speak.

The first song, actually a hymn, was Faith of Our Fathers, followed by Amazing Grace.

I’m only interested in President and Mrs. Bush too. Biden’s fake sad looking zipped fat lips may outdo Clinton’s phony buttoned up lips look of yesteryear.

This guy is talking like the real challenge was the bureaucratic fight in getting this memorial approved and built...and that the bureaucrats and politicians are the heros.

Folks, take note as this magnificent note of American excellence, heroism and history is recorded for the ages, the un-American, President, Barack Hussein Obama and his Black racist, un-American wife, Michelle Obama are nowhere in sight!!! Our African Muslim POTUS has little regard for this historic event in American history!!! Oh, yes he will show up for a few minutes sometime tomorrow, but the impact of history will have already passed!!! Some President and leader of the free world, you think????

Just go to show once again, government inefficiency.

10 years to finish this memorial?? Could have and should have taken one summer to do it.

Actually, so far we've had a very Christian invocation and two great hymns on the bagpipes.

Plus President Bush will be speaking, who is a devout follower of Jesus Christ.

There is nothing 'pagan' so far about this event.

Thanks for this thread, La Enchiladita.

It hurts to remember.

But it is good to see President Bush and the First Lady again as part of this Memorial, isn't it?

We had two black flight attendants and one black pilot on flight 93. Many more friends and families will be there tomorrow, Sunday.

I do know that United Airlines flight attendants boarded a bus at EWR this morning and are on their way to Shanksville this very minute.

Really, a simple memorial would have been enough, cordon the area and declare it sacred ground. All the time and BS not necessary. I hate when self-important people, politicians like THIS one, use an occasion like this to congratulate themselves and their “colleagues” when THEY ARE NOT THE HEROES.

(Did someone in the audience just holler out?)

Why are you counting the color of their faces?

Are you racist? Or a merely a bigot? Or a liberal-socialist
