Target: Joseph C. Daniels, CEO & President of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum Foundation
Goal: Keep the September 11 Memorial Museum free of charge for everyone
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum has been under construction since 2001 to commemorate the September 11 attacks that killed approximately 3,000 people, and the World Trade Center bombing that killed six people in 1993. The mission of the Memorial is to remember and honor the thousands of innocent men, women, and children killed by terrorists, respect the sacred site, and to recognize the endurance of those who survived, the courage of those who risked their lives to save others, and the compassion of all who supporters. By remembering these lives and recognizing these deeds, people can reaffirm respect for life and inspire an end to hatred ignorance and intolerance. There should not be a price placed on admissions to such a sacred place. However, the CEO, Joseph C. Daniels, along with other employees of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum Foundation, are charging people $25 per admission.
Some people believe that the 9/11 Memorial Museum is a National Memorial. People are not charged to visit other national memorials like the Vietnam Wall, Arlington National Cemetery, or Pearl Harbor. People should not be charged $25 each to get into the Memorial to commemorate the many people who died in the attacks, and the many who died while trying to save others. Sign the petition to urge Joseph Daniels to allow people to see the Memorial free of charge.
Dear Joseph C. Daniels, CEO & President, National September 11 Memorial & Museum Foundation,
The September 11 attacks killed around 3,000 people. Some died during the terrorist attacks while some died trying to save others. These attacks along with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing inspired the creation of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. No price should be placed on entering such a sacred site that serves to remember the victims and the heroes, and to inspire an end to hatred ignorance and intolerance.
We urge you to allow people to enter the Memorial free of charge. It would be a shame if people cannot go see such an important memorial because of money.
