Why don't they have this ceremony in the early evening when the majority of Perry Hall residents are not at work or school?

Sorry that you are such an idiot ! The Tim that doesn't matter! They are doing it the right way! Show some respect! And stop being a typical Perry Hall jelly spreader !

I would have liked to be there tomorrow morning but I don't think it would be right to bring my dog and I am not having him eat his breakfast later. I understand having it in the morning the same time as the attacks but it would be nice to have a ceremony in the evening as well. The shock/attacks happen in the morning but this lasted many days for all of us.

Jeannie if you feel that way and need to go I don't think you dog will starve by eating a late breakfast !

Would not want to inconvenience the dog to remember/honor the death of thousands? Wow. Honestly, this sort of thinking is so foreign to me that I cannot comprehend at all. Choose to go or not, but a dogs breakfast entering into decision seems a bit off to me. But this is a free country...I was in mid town that day in 2001. Caught the 6:30am Amtrak out of bwi rail for 10am meeting. Still have unused return tix. Shrieks, smell, sounds TV cannot replicate never really leave you. Choose your way to remember....but just please do....and pray for peace.

Classy. Real classy.

My dog has stomach problems and has to stick to a specific feeding schedule and can not be left for two hours after he eats or he gets too worked up and looses the food. I have the TV on and except feeding my dog I will not be leaving the TV. Might seem off to some people to have to choose but his health comes first. There has been a lot of talk about healing emotionally on other articles, I am sure the people directly effected by the attacks this morning 11 years ago are still healing and I hope they have love ones for support.
Jeanne September 11, 2012 at 12:18 PM
The point of my post was I understand why the ceremony is in the morning because thats when the attacks happen but I agree with Eric and would like to see something done in the evening because everything that happen that day didn't stop in the morning. I said it wouldn't be right to bring my dog to something like this and I still think that is correct.
