There's no need for a holiday about destruction. The only thing I want on 9/11 is a normal day without any speeches from politicians.

MLK day is a good holiday, although no one thinks about the true significance anymore.

Agreed, SSJT... do you all think that people will turn this into a sort of a religious holiday, due to the emphasis on reflection and prayer?

September 11th should not be made a national holiday. It should be remember every year, but if it was made a holiday, many would just regard it as a day off from work/school.

If we made it a federal holiday, the terrorists will have won.

Also, Christ isn't really a "person" if you get what I'm saying. He's more than that.

I have to agree with LK here, September 11th should be a holiday. It is a day to remember everyone that lost their lives and a day to celebrate that this country is stronger now because of it. It is both a sort of celebration and a day or mourning and rememberance.

It's not going to take a holiday for me to remember that's for sure. Every time I look at a clock reading 9:11 I am reminded... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

Holidays should be celebration for great things, like Veterans Day. If September 11 became a holiday, I would just head to the lake like I usually do when I have free time, and we shouldnt remember 9-11 by water skiing.

People's Champ, as long as a President like Bush is in, he will end up endorsing some kind of a national day of prayer, and completely disregard every other belief or lack thereof in the USA.

If 9/11 is a holiday, sooner or later we will have backyard bbq's and kids waiting for that day off from school aka the day a ton of people died in NYC and DC.

I'm sure we all want that. <img border="0" alt="[NoNo]" title="" src="graemlins/nono.gif" />

Well...I haven't yet formed an opinion about whether 9/11 should be a federal holiday or not...but I did want to point out that Memorial Day is all about tragic losses...so there would be some sort of precedent for all this.
