Subject: 9/11: Open Letter to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg:

You have banned from attending the “Ground Zero” 10th anniversary 9/11 ceremony, religious leaders, uniformed law enforcement officers, firefighters, paramedics, first-responders, and other volunteers. Many of these men and women are veterans or current members of military service to our country, and union workers. Your proclamation is as inconceivable to me as if soldiers who fought and survived on Civil War battlefields of Arlington were excluded from attending Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. How dare you deny today’s living heroes of 9/11 participation in this truly American-family-ceremony of remembrance and celebration of those who died, and those who survived!

As a Vietnam Veteran, I recall the political-voices proclaiming the need to win the hearts and minds of the people. I also note Shakespeare’s observation “The eye is the window of the soul...” seems relevant to your edict. Anyone looking into your eye will see in to a frighteningly uncaring dark soul as if it were filled with coagulated-contempt and utter distain for American citizens and our heritage.

Your decree, on this infamous 9/11 day, forever fails to win the hearts and minds of Americans and New Yorkers, and could be voiced only by a politically-correct shriveled-hearted bureaucratic-coward filled with contempt and callous disregard for the majority opinion of the nation.

Mayor Bloomberg, you have excluded from attendance at this ceremony the very people Americans call upon during times of crisis, distress, and acts of terror. A decision glaring wrong in so many ways as to leave America stunned, and heaps everlasting shame and dishonor upon your name.

Your ugly proclamation is as despicably hideous as a diseased-festering wound, and would have shocked our nation’s forefathers. It is fitting that you will be remember by the American people as having betrayed emergency personnel, veterans, union workers, and people of faith, for which the shame and disgrace is yours alone.
