hmm.. not something i would buy for a multitude of reasons...
1. i think that sept 11 caused enough pain.. and doesnt need to be rehashed every anniversary...
2. I wouldnt put something on my baby that commemorates something so terrible ... i mean i would put a diaper representing the anniversary of the oklahoma city bombing... or the american indian war.... or the bombing of iraq.. etc. Its just not appropriate IMO.... I have a line i dont cross.. things like that and religious figures dont belong on diapers.. disrespectful IMO.
I am sure the sentiment is there.. but IMO it would be better/more appropriate if it were something else.. an appliqued wall hanging.. a nice picture.. etc etc you get my point!

Some people mourn in different ways. Commemorative clothing is just one of many things done to remember that event.

Just call me stupid but it made me think of the time before the terrorist attack. Maybe I am just an idiot though

...... the towers were the first thing I saw when I drove into NYC, and the last thing I saw as I drove away. When Dh and I watched them fall we were horrified (for lack of a better word, there wasn't really a word to describe how we felt) and my heart just broke for the people lost and the families who grieved. I don't think I'd think of that exact moment every time I looked at the diaper, but remember the way it used to be, when I last left NY.
I guess it is a matter of perspective.

Cass, who doesn't really consider herself to be "true blue", but who also thinks instilling a little respect in our children is a very good thing

It's not done to rehash anything but to remember that this not only happened but that these families still need the support both emotional and financial from us. So many of us "forget" what others don't have the chance to forget. When a tragedy happens it is easy to do what we can immediately but it is the long run that I look at, helping today and tomorrow.
This is one way that I can continue to help. Sorry the print offened some but like I said they were requested to be used.
