Calling all Sailboats - Sept 14 in NY Harbour
Wow Denr, you saying this is a dumb idea just makes it sound like an even better idea! You NEVER say anything positive....you have "sour grapejuice" running through your veins. God I feel sorry for your neighbors and everyone who has to meet you.
No, it will not bring back the 3000 people, but it is a symbol and I know most of the people around here will like it. I know some of the people that were killed, I have donated (and so have millions of Americans) and there has been many $$ distributed & earmarked for NY. (And are you saying NY doesn''t "need to be rebuilt"?!?----You, my freind, are an idiot ! ) What NY needs is not more money, but it would appreciate something that can lift their spirits. Everything people do in life is to make the living feel good....crying and wringing yours hands will not bring back those people. But remembering them often and moving on with our lives in their spirit will be a better dedication to what they sacrificed, forgeting about them is the mistake!
And Secondly, this is not just about yacht racing, you fool, know what you are talking about before you open your mouth....this is for ANY sailing vessels, that includes, cruisers, mom & pop''s, kids, daysailors AND windsurfers! It is ALL inclusive.
In fact, onboard the EAGLE, they would like to have children who lost a parent on 9/11 ride on the Eagle and be "Special Guests" . Maybe in your cold heart you would think this is a waste and frivolous. But these children would be able to look out over the harbor and see it filled with boats sailing in the memory of their parents I am sure it would be a memory that they will always cherish.
And I am sorry you feel that this would be "Clogging up the waterways with a bunch of slow moving vessels". I guess Op Sail in 1976, 1992 & 2000 were a waste of time too. If you are so down on this why don''t you just get out of sailing all together.
I''d love to hear comments from other people.
ps.....How would YOU know what is good for NY and the people here. You are NOT our spokesman. Don''t EVER try to be one, I would love to see you "spout your mouth" in a NY bar like you do on this list.
You are such a downer and negative person, at times you make me and lots of other people ill. So Denr....do us a favor and stay FAR away from NY harbor...ok?
