Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York
United States of America

Michael Bloomberg's office has decided that first responders won't be part of this 9-11 memorial ceremony at Ground Zero. The mayor claims there isn't room for them. They weren't invited on that day in 2001 either, but they showed up anyway and many lost their lives.

Let the mayor know that we believe this is wrong and to find a place for these heroes.

We the undersigned, call on Mayor Bloomberg to allow first responders to attend the 10th anniversary ceremony of 9/11.

EMT professionals, police officers, and firefighters rushed to the twin towers and arrived at the Pentagon ready to take on the massive destruction on 9/11/01.

Now it has been decided that these first responders are not invited to the 10th anniversary ceremony because there is no room for them. These heroes weren't invited on that day in 2001 either but they showed up saved thousands of lives, risked their own -- many sacrificing their own -- and spent countless hours searching debris with the desperate hope that they would retrieve one more survivor.

This decision that you and your office made is disgraceful to these remarkable men and women from the ceremony. They deserve recognition and honor and America should remember their service and those men and women who responded that day but did not get to go home to the comfort of their families to reflect on the tragedy.
