I have an idea for 9/11 in NYC!

Since Mayor Bloomberg is going out of his way to ignore those who gave their lives in the service of others on 9/11, I purpose that the fine Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York City join with local clergy in holding a memorial Mass for those who gave their lives to help others on that tragic morning.  Mr. Bloomberg, it was not you, nor the President, nor the politicians who were running into harm's way  to rescue the traumatized from the World Trade Center; that duty belonged to the brave men and women of the NYPD, NYFD, EMT's and their chaplains who ran towards those buildings as everyone else was rightfully fleeing or staring in horror. They lost their brothers that day as the buildings collapsed, including one of their chaplains, Fr. Mychal Judge.  To not invite them to this memorial is shameful.  It would be nice if the Yankees or Mets would allow their stadiums to be used for this event so that these brave men and women know that we remember their sacrifices that day and that their families who are left behind know that we deeply appreciate their selfless service.  Just an idea.


  1. Looks like Archbishop Dolan is already doing so...maybe not at Yankee stadium, but at Ground Zero:
