Im quite disappointed and frankly offended that Ho-Ho-Kus decided to hold the annual movie and jazz concert evening on September 11, 2009. This does not seem to be a fitting event for a national day of remembrance and reflection. Not only did the Borough loose some of its own residence on that horrific day but our country was attacked taking a great hit and devastating loss. What type of message does this send to the children of Ho-Ho-Kus, many of whom may have not even been born on 9/11/01. How soon the mayor and council of Ho-Ho-Kus forget. May the rest of us never forget.

It's one thing to remember the ones we lost on 9-11. I myself barely escaped that day. Another to be crippled by it. The point of terrorism is to change your way of life through fear. I lost a family member that day and I almost lost my life.
But I be dammed if I let them take away my way of life..By "Remembering, and being saddened, angry, fearful" We let them win. I sure as hell wont feed into that fear train. I went out on that day and invited some friends over home for a BBQ, we drank, we laughed, we played drinking games and enjoyed each other's company. THAT is how I "remembered" that day.They may have beaten down many with fear and anger, but not me. I applaud Hohokus and it's community for seeing past the "day" and providing an outlet for it's community to come together and do a very American thing. Be neighbors, enjoy a movie, smile..have fun. Everyone else who wants to watch fox news and be angry at the world can do so. It is after all, a free county.:-)
