This is the former sep11:September 11 talk:General discussion page, imported here for historical reasons.

Look at all the people angry that people are paying respect to dead Americans.

Please let's not be angry about tributes. We all want to pay respect to the dead; let us find a way to discuss naming respectfully as well. The growing number of memorial articles created on Wikipedia points to the need for places to archive and present them. Sj 21:02, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Ok, got linked here from en.wiki, am I the only one finds this rather morbid?--Um,ok 21:52, 6 December 2005 (UTC)Reply

Some do, some don't. If you find the memorials morbid or uninteresting you could contribute more to the hisory of the events than to the people, which are far more of the content here than I personally like - it's the history that interets me. It may be that you don't have personal experience fo the death of those you found interesting or cared about; either of which is likely to increase the extent to which you appreciate obituaries and such.

I don't think you can be neutral and memorialize people who may not be dead. It's pretty obvious the events of 9/11 were not that a bunch of hijackers crashed planes into 3 buildings without any help and then 2 of those buildings fell down, collapse caused by the plane crash and burning jet fuel. History will not support this hypothesis. There is no evidence that the passengers of any of the four 'hijacked' planes are dead. In fairness to the missing passengeres, I think it's very disrespectful to memorialise them. A full investigation into this crime is impossible now thanks to people jumping to the conclusion and accepting the dubious story that is being foisted upon us. Better than memorialise the victims, let's find out what happened to the hundreds of missing people kidnapped on September 11 2002.en.wikipedia.User:Pedant 04:27, 26 March 2006 (UTC)Reply

Memorials are part of what is here. If you'd like to research and prove the kidnap theory, please do let me know when your research is published in the newspapers so we can give it proper coverage here. Jamesday 21:51, 26 March 2006 (UTC)Reply

5-Year 9/11 Memorial Patch--Announcement[edit]

9/11 Anniversary Patch Honors Emergency Services, Soldiers[edit]

The 9/11 anniversary patch is a tribute to those who gave their lives on 9/11 and to those who continue to risk their lives daily. (PRWEB) May 1st, 2006 -- A 9/11 five-year anniversary patch will be released from the National Firefighters 9/11 Memorial Patch Web site on March 1, 2006. This patch is a tribute to those who gave their lives on 9/11 and to those who continue to risk their lives daily.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will be donated to three specific funds relating to fire and EMS, police and military non-profits. The patch follows the successful three-year run of the 9-11 Patch, which features a single firefighter holding an axe. This patch was sold to more than 3,500 organizations worldwide. All the patch proceeds were donated to the UFA Widows and Children’s Fund of the FDNY.

The 9/11 Patch has an American flag backdrop, with three figures rising above the World Trade Center towers. The figures are that of a soldier, a firefighter and a police officer. The words, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET,” are inscribed at the bottom of the patch, which is outlined in black.

The new five-year patch is designed to be worn on the uniforms of firefighters, paramedics, police officers and soldiers as a sign of unity. The patch is meant to equally represent and be worn by all emergency service workers and soldiers. The design comes from Brett Hill, firefighter and founder of the National Firefighters 9-11 Memorial Patch; Mikel Bullis, retired firefighter, host and Web designer for the project Web site; and Bryan Russell, firefighter and founder of DateAHero.com.

The patches are available from the“9/11 Patch Project,” which was created to remember all those who gave their lives on 9/11 and all those who continue to risk their lives daily. The patch is professionally produced by a San Diego company called Pacific Sportswear. The patches are sold for $4.95 each and can be ordered directly from the website at http://9-11patchproject.org Contact: Brett Hill memopatch911@aol.com
