Larry Brophy expressed my opinion exactly and articulately in his letter “Why I support the Ground Zero Mosque.” Additionally, do the protesters know or care that approximately 300 Muslims were killed in the 911 attack?
On Sept. 11, 2006 a sculpture called “The Teardrop” was dedicated to serve as a memorial to lives lost in the World Trade Center attack. This sculpture was envisioned, created and shipped to the United States as a gift from the people of Russia.
Today, four years later we are still squabbling about what our memorial should be and now also squabbling about the possibility of a learning center-prayer center being located too close to Ground Zero.
Come on, Americans, wake up. We must work together to overcome hate to survive as a country.
