Where will you commemorate this year’s September 11th anniversary?

Will you join us at the Firefighters Park on Washington Avenue? It is a somber but needed reminder of who we lost and how our world changed in one fateful day.

Where will out two Presidential candidates be?
An organization called MyGoodDeed.org has asked the candidates to spend the anniversary in NYC, volunteering instead of campaigning.

Both camps have agreed to participate.

Organizers say Barack Obama and John McCain are set to appear at a community service forum called ServiceNation in New York City on Sept. 11. This is a volunteering coalition being launched by the group to better communicate the needs and shared resources between volunteer groups.

Both campaigns say they'll honor the anniversary by pulling political ads criticizing each other. There is no telling what the outside PAC will do regarding political ads, but this will indicate the level of class and willpower of the supportive groups out there.

Locally, those who wish to witness the event on the corner of Hurley Ave and Washington Ave that morning are welcome and encouraged. Parking at the stadium is free, get there before 8:30 am.

I have to work that day. Maybe you should start a campaign to make it a Holiday in Kingston.
