If you’re a New Yorker you’ve probability traveled down to “Ground Zero” when it was nothing more than a smoldering mass grave yard.

You no doubt felt as you passed the long chain link fence with the thousands of heart wrenching photos and memorabilia of those lost on that faithful day, and you probably watched at some point the tedious cleanup and witnessed the long delays of rebuilding, that deep sense of pride, when construction workers hoisted “Old Glory” high above the site as a tribute to those lost and a reminder of who we are.

However it seems that the management at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City has forgotten exactly why they exist in the first place.

They need to certainly do a much better job educating their staff, when it as reported that a pair of security guards acted improperly last week when they ordered a group of North Carolina middle school students to stop their choral rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The guards had told the 51 Waynesville Middle School students, and a teacher conducting them, that their outburst of patriotism honoring dead Americans required a $35 performance permit.

“The guard did not respond appropriately,” memorial spokeswoman Kaylee Skaar said, “We are working with our security staff to ensure that this will not happen again. We reached out to the school to express our regret for how this was handled and asked the principal to share that with the students.”

Do you think these 9/11 Memorial employees who banned these kids should be fired?
