Depict the Flag Raising at Ground Zero of the WTC Attack as it Actually Occurred! sign now

We the undersigned citizens of the United States, and concerned citizens from other nations, hereby petition the New York City Fire Department and the City of New York as follows regarding the proposed statue depicting the raising of the US flag at ground zero of the WTC attack by firefighters on September 11, 2001.

1. Immediately change the proposed statue or replace it, such that the actual events of the flag raising are accurately depicted to show those firemen who actually raised the flag doing so. Use the famous picture, shown below, of the flag raising to accurately depict the flag raising as it occurred.

2. Cease all efforts to modify the historical record of that day in any way, shape, or form that would promote a so called "cultural diversity" or "politically correct" agenda of any type and simply present events as they occurred accurately for rising generations.

This event is of great historical significance and has united the American people like no other. The only hope for future generations to avoid and/or counter similar events is for the historical record to be accurate. The only way to continue the unification created by those horrible events is to present them accurately and truthfully. To do otherwise will only promote disunity and aid the cause of our enemies.

One might just as well try and depict the terrorist animals who perpetrated these attacks and those who aided and abetted them as choir boys and peace-loving pacifists as to depict the heroic events of that flag raising as something other than what they were. The fact is, those enemies who attacked this nation were cruel, grossly evil and perverted in their actions and deserving of a harsh and just retribution for what they did. Thousands of innocent American and other lives were lost due to the twisted religious and ideological ravings of those whe perpetrated the attacks, thousands who were innocent of any crime other than trying to live their lives in freedom and peace.

The fact is also that the events regarding the flag raising occurred as they did, without any thought to political correctness or cultural diversity. At that moment, the only thought was patriotism to our nation and devotion to the duty of helping the victims. To depict it in any other manner sullies a historical and heroic act and descrates hallowed ground. The American people will not stand for it.
