Re-building at Ground Zero
Today is a day to reflect upon and remember the innocent Americans murdered at the
nine years ago. I am at Ground Zero looking down into the pit of devastation, two blocks from the site of the proposed Islamic Mosque and World Trade Center . Cultural Center

American values include “Freedom of Religion”, but if you want to have reconciliation with Muslims, now is not the time and Ground Zero is not the place. The country is too polarized right now to accept a mosque at this scene of unspeakable tragedy.
It is insensitive to build the mosque in the shadows of Ground Zero, but Americans have to honor the Constitution. Freedom of Religion does not end two blocks from Ground Zero.
represents liberty and religious freedom, but Ground Zero is hallowed ground and should be respected. United States of America
