Please join me on this discussion. I want to know what you think. Do you feel public schools should be mandated to have simple Moment of Silence every 9/11? Does the schools proximity to Ground Zero matter? Should a school in the middle of our great country stop and honor and remember 9/11 the same way a New York School does? Should a Superintendent have the right to order a school to NOT have a Moment of Silence on 9/11?

I would like to know what you think. No matter your side. Please share your comments.
