Speak Up: Should September 11 Be a National Holiday?

Tuesday marks 11 years since the U.S. was attacked by terrorists.

The President has called for a national day of service to remember the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 on Tuesday.

Around the country citizens will give their day to community service, whether its neighborhood cleanups, disaster preparation, flood relief, or something else, people are taking the day to give back and be a communty. 

But is that enough? Do you think it should be honored in another way?

Should September 11 be a national holiday? What should it be called? Given the fact that tragedies occur worldwide daily, is a national holiday for Sept. 11 over the top? Tell us in the comments!

Well, we have Pearl Harbor Day in remembrance of that attack on Dec. 7, 1941. So it makes sense to have a Twin Towers Day (or some other name) in remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001.
