Dear Mr. O'Reilly,
The 9/11 memorial is not about you. That you do not like that Mayor Bloomberg did not invite clergy, police and fire personnel is a very local view.
Besides the families of 9/11 victims, representatives from each of the countries that lost victims must be represented as well as all nations that stand with us in the battle against the tyranny of terror, and of course representatives from the United Nations and N.A.T.O.
That the New York City Police and the New York City Fire Departments were not speciffically invited show that the memorial is about the people who were and still are affected by the events of that day, and not institutions.
About the clergy, if clergy is to be singled out then the clergy that represents every individual that was lost, should be invited.
9/11 is not just about New York City, or America, or people, it is about the human race and its struggle to raise itself above the classification of animal and peoples willingness to coexist in peace.
We abhor the assault we endured and must find common ground to ensure or hope to ensure that all peoples feel as we do, that we must find a better way to resolve our differences.
