Commemorative flags went up this morning, but will come down on Tuesday
Yeah, for Labor Day.
Labor Day is not really a festive party-hardy kind of care free holiday, it is supposed to "commemorate" the struggle -- punctuated by violence -- to bring about safer working conditions for the tired, huddled masses of workers via unions. Strength in numbers.
How many employees trudged to work on that stunningly beautiful morning almost eleven years ago, reporting for duty to the Twin Towers or police and fire houses in New York City, or the Pentagon, or Logan International Airport, never to return?
How does it make them feel?!
