I posted this the Brothers of the Shield forum but thought I might reach a few more by putting it here too. It would be mighty nice to see it happen. [url]http://www.petitiononline.com/sgt964[/url]

There were a lot of Heroes on 9-11, all of whom I admire and deeply respect. Those Fireman and others that died that day went above and beyond the call of duty. Even now when I think back to that fateful day I get choked up. They should never be forgotten. With that said I find the idea of putting there faces on a cereal box trivializes and demeans them. Hence I do not support this petition. Heroes deserve statues....not a temporary cardboard display. [soapbox] Sgtar15

OK, flame suit on, just in case... I am in no way trying to detract from the sacrifice made by these proud men and women, either on 9/11, or any other day. However, I think I've seen enough commercialism tied into this tragedy already. At first I thought it was a good idea, but then I thought, what if I saw the box in the store, without first seeing this post. The truth is, it would have disgusted me. I don't want to see any more 9/11 memorials on something I'm supposed to buy. I just don't feel that it's very appropriate. Sorry if I've rubbed anyone the wrong way, but that's how I feel.
