Don’t Want The Mosque

Dear Editor,

I don’t want the Mosque near Ground Zero, and here is why.

Sensitivity and caring for others are intangibles that do not factor into today’s society.

Self-serving interests are primary in today’s world.

September 11 happened and nearly 3,000 people went to work and did not return home again. That is 3,000 people plus all of their family and friends, neighbors and strangers. They were all affected by that day.

Janet, mother of two young children, one of them a special needs youngster, was murdered on September 11. Each morning, Janet purchased two cups of coffee; one for herself and another for a homeless gentleman sitting in the entrance to her workplace. This was an everyday routine for Janet and her unknown friend.

Concessions must be made. I believe in those of us who do not want the Mosque at Ground Zero, who are saying no to a Mosque in the shadow of Ground Zero.

We must be together, aware of our “melting pot” society. If this man wants to truly be a healer, to bring people together, this is not the way to do it. Move the Mosque.
