Should 9/11 Be a Federal Holiday?

posted by Scott and Sadie - 

We're going to be really disappointed if one day, people look at 9/11 as a chance to have parties and mattress sales.

 

Today is the 17th anniversary of 9/11.  And a new poll just asked people if it should be a federal holiday.

 

Here are the results . . .

 

1.  38% say it SHOULD become a federal holiday.

2.  42% say it shouldn't.

3.  And the other 20% aren't sure.

 

By the way, there IS a name for this day.  Every year since it's happened, the president has named September 11th as "Patriot Day."

 

But it's not a federal holiday, which means schools, banks, and the government are still open . . . and people aren't getting an official day off of work.
