It's been 13 years it's time to move on.we will never forget but the all day event needs to end.no other country does this for any of their attacks.Fly the flags at half staff do a moment of silence but that's it.

I don't know how old you are, but 13 years is not a long time at all.

Next week (4.21.14) is the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing.  I'm assuming this is the event in which you speak?  God Bless America : )  #BostonStrong

I feel like we should get over it completely personally, move on and while we are at it, stop killing people ourselves.

A lot of people lost loved ones, so it's important to them to have a support network. Let's get rid of Columbus Day instead. He was a bad man.

....but they don't tend to do an all day thing anyway. I mean, people think about it on that day and have ceremonies, but it isn't like we stop everything on that day.

They still do a memorial in OKC for the bombing.

I don't really see all day events on 9/11. I see a service and moment of silence in the mornings and them it's back to programming.

No. It doesn't affect me in any way. 13 years must feel like yesterday to the families who suffered a loss from that attack.

 I don't think its over the top or anything. It was one of the BIGGEST attacks on our soil we should make sure it is not forgotten.
