Because of possible overcrowding rescuers from September 11th have been asked not to attend the ten year anniversary memorial to be held at ground zero. Instead there will be one held for them at a later date.
Read the story here as reported by CBS.
I understand that there were more people killed that day than 1st responders. But how many of those were rushing in to help? That's what I thought. Maybe they should un-invite the politicians (Obama, Bush, and Giuliani to name a few) with their associated massive security details and make room for some of the guys that were there. Not to mention the politicians attending with the government paying the way. Invite the political talking heads to the ceremony to be held at a later date.
I guess we rescuers are yesterday's news to the politicians. Now to get in the spot light you have to be a part of a ceremony. I'd be way more impressed if a politician that was slated to attend gave up his spot to a cop or a firefighter.
