    Please stop for a second and try to realize that the memorial is for the son who died on 9/11. It is not about placing blame, it's about honoring the dead.

    Have you learned the difference yet?
    As I've said before a memorial is about honoring the dead AND knowing what happened. It is not just about honoring the dead. Just honoring them means nothing if you don't know what happened to them or what they are being honored for.

    If the father wants the way in which people know what happened to be blunt and the truth then what is wrong with it?

    I keep seeing a few people here say that it just casts blame. Name me one memorial that doesn't cast blame in any way shape or form.

    Does anyone question what happened in Vietnam because "Murdered by the Viet Cong" wasn't written on the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial? Has anyone forgotten what happened in Vietnam because that wasn't written on there?

    Why does it have to be "blunt"? Is that how you would want to remember your son if he had died? Blunt? Why would you choose to be inflammatory about your son's death, when you don't have to be? You're just being an instigator.

    Does the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial directly cast blame on the Viet Cong? If yes, show me where.

    And just so you know Kal'Stang, I could have went with the FDR Memorial, or the Washington Memorial, to blow your idiotic question to pieces, but chose not to. Consider it a freebie.

    It is not questioned because people are educated as to what happened. As I'm sure they will be on 9/11. I'm not arguing that point.

    As for "why does it have to be blunt" it doesn't. But what is wrong with being blunt? How is the truth inflammatory? No ones been able to explain that point satisfactorily.

    And yes I would want to be blunt as to how my son died.

    It is narrow minded and in bad taste. But hey that is their right.

    Who cares weather it is directly or not? It still does by inference. Everyone knows what the vietnam memorial is about.

    Exactly, why must you be blunt then? Why must you choose to be inflammatory about it? Why be the instigator? Why choose to be all these things when you can so easily choose not to?
