9/11 babies don't celebrate on 9/11?
Okay, did anyone else see this segment? I don't have link for you, I'm sorry, but this has been bugging me all week. This one family, she had twins, TWINS, on 9/11 amongst all the horror of the day. And can you believe that the parents don't celebrate their birthdays on 9/11? The mother said it's disrespectful.

I cannot even believe that. And do you know that those girls thought 9/11 was their fault!!

Who does that to their kids? Ugh, people suck.

Remind me why we're thinking about bringing children into this world when all this idiocity is growing stronger and stronger everyday??

Sorry, just needed to vent.

That's just sad and I think the mother needs a real wakeup call (if not a psychiatric evaluation) because she really is damaging the kids. It's not their fault they were born on that day. In my opinion it just valudates what the terrorists wanted to achieve, to disrupt life as we know it and cause sorrow. I wonder how many people were born on Dec 7th don't celebrate their birthday?

Ridiculous. The best way to commemorate the victims of 9/11 is to celebrate LIFE! This is the most precious thing we have, families who lost a love one on that day know it better than anyone else. At least this is how I see it.

These poor kids... life is hard enough nowadays, to be born with the "burden" of 9/11 on your shoulders is just unfair.

That's nuts. Something bad has happened on every single day of the year, so what are we supposed to do? Not celebrate anything because it's disrespectful of the people who suffered? I think the people that died on 9/11 wouldn't have wanted the terrorism that ended their lives to prevent other people from living normally, they would want celebrations and love and laughter to continue....

it's just as disrespectful not to celebrate the kid's birthday on their birthday. It seems to be to me that this gal is putting everyone else before her kids. A shameful state to be in, IMHO.

Yep, that's the one. Thank you for finding that, I didn't remember if it was on my local news or one of the cable news channels.

Ridiculous. And shameful.

Thats just wrong! I happened to have been born on Sept 11th ( granted I was born before 2001) I get comments all the time when I have to show my drivers license "Wow, what a day to be born on" or "Isn't is weird to have a Birthday on such a tragic day" No, for the previous 40 years it was my Birthday and it still is. I do think about the events of the day, its still clear as a bell, but I am still going to celebrate my Birthday on my Birthday. I hope those parents wake up.

One of DS's friends bd is 9/11. He has huge parties. His mom did cancel the 2001 one, but hasn't since.

It's sad to do that to those little girls for no reason. I don't think anyone who is a victim or family member would find it disrespectful if those little girls have birthday parties on september 11th poor girls
