Well I it was deplorable we actually true -- -- were bared their middle school to kids that should know better but the -- and the parent should've got them ready before.
And I think it's said that they had to do something like that but I think that's it it somebody should meet them at the day when they go through metal detectors.
Tellem the importance of what this site means everybody -- -- -- background is now those ground is and how we treat you know we the families feel it's hallowed ground and at the this wasn't done and it's not done and -- memorial foundation runs the site down there.
We think the national parks or should -- they do that better they doubted that pro Harbaugh the director at Shanksville Oklahoma City that you were done enough.
Down pentagon and you know tell people at a going in -- that this is a place of respect and set the tone for the day and that's not what's being done down there.
We feel that the -- memorial doesn't have -- experienced endured the fish -- National Park Service -- tomorrow TSA is chaos right now a go through those picture and you basically on your own.
Basically it that's when did you go through metal detector you'll wander out there want to progress with a grass and trees and the waterfalls.
I mean they've sanitize the site you don't know anything happened down there we wanted to.
You know of those yearbook -- and you'll see that though some happened on -- but it's like a balk.
And we don't feel you know -- people laying on the grass is people -- balls around is people waving cameras talking loudly it's not a place that Solomon respect.
And you mention it you know you've been -- you've been to Pearl Harbor you've been to other places as people walking through telling me about it.

Who's paying homes over the last two months -- going on there.
But you've given these kids a lot of slack how many kids need to be briefed on 9/11 -- from Brooklyn New York.
-- lot of you know a lot of them what they were two years old they can remember but I mean it's it's up to us.
You know those who forget history due to repeated you have to teach these kids educate them both young at all -- lot of young all the people that have respected down -- -- -- -- on the grass.
Hang it out and we we feel that's bad.
Who we think New York political dysfunction is -- this whole process down it's a national disgrace ten years later we of the -- of the building at one world trade senate.
The memorial museum isn't even being built right now we have human body parts that are gonna go in the basement of the -- of the ground zero museum.
And families never had a -- it we have -- the -- as they -- not -- us.
We feel it's a disgrace the Phillies won -- above ground as you come in.
But too many unknown when an eternal idea and that would set the tone for the respect the people walk in and had seen that there the national park services.
-- the people I can do this.
Then on eleven memorial people have mobile all the bloated budgets all the bloated salaries mismanagement.
