“9/11 Parents and Families of Firefighters and World Trade Center Victims” Condemn the Prohibition Against Singing our National Anthem at Ground Zero
We extend our profound appreciation to the Schoolchildren of Waynesville , N.C. Middle School on Behalf of 9/11 families and all New Yorkers, and condemn the policies of 9/11MM officials

Once again, the 9/11 memorial and museum officials have displayed inappropriate and unacceptable behavior by callously interrupting a reverent and impromptu rendition of our National Anthem sung by a group of patriotic schoolchildren from North Carolina. Security personnel on the memorial plaza stopped the performance before its conclusion, causing shock and confusion, while leaving the public wondering how this sacred site could ever be called a “national” memorial in which the public must get approval to pay their respects and sing an anthem which is so fundamental to every American citizen! Much of the public does not understand that the site is actually controlled by a private foundation, issuing edicts and demands without any public input or oversight. It is not surprising to 9/11 families that visitors must now purchase a $35 permit to “pay to sing” as they have had to “pay to grieve” in order to visit the unidentified human remains locked in the basement of the 9/11 museum.
Our organization extends deep regrets to the children, families, and faculty of the Waynesville Middle School who were treated so poorly by memorial staff. We would like to invite them to meet with us when they return to NYC where we will personally show them our appreciation for their patriotism and devotion in honoring our loved ones. We look forward to hearing them sing without fear of being silenced by the money-grabbing private foundation and their own “security” guards.
Once again, 9/11 Parents and Families of Firefighters and World Trade Center Victims calls on Congress and especially our two NY Senators - to reject the current proposed Congressional bill of the memorial foundation for an annual no-strings-attached $25 million yearly handout which will ensure their bloated salaries. They claim they need it for “security” without disclosing that currently the site is protected and patrolled by two police departments – the NYPD and the Port Authority PD! Instead, we call on Congress to take over the memorial and museum and put the National Park Service in charge of the entire site. This will ensure that professionalism and patriotism are first and foremost, an American flag will fly proudly over Ground Zero, and National Park Service fiscal responsibility will trump the salaries of the stuffed suits and fat cats who have created the most expensive memorial-museum in human history-without any way to pay for it- except to raid the pockets of the American taxpayers.
