New Law Requires NY Schools To Observe 9/11 Anniversary


New York schools are required to provide a moment of silence to observe the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, according to a new state law approved by Gov. Andrew Cuomo Monday, the NY Post reports.

The law calls for a brief moment of silence at the beginning of the school day every 9/11 to encourage dialogue and education in the classroom among a new generation of students who weren’t alive during the 2001 terror attacks that leveled the World Trade Center’s twin towers and killed more than 3,000 people — the worst foreign attack on American soil. The law goes into effect immediately.

“9/11 was one of the single darkest periods in this state’s and this nation’s history, and we owe it to those we lost and to the countless heroes who ran toward danger that day and the days that followed to do everything we can to keep their memory alive,” Cuomo said. “By establishing this annual day of remembrance and a brief moment of silence in public schools, we will help ensure we never forget — not just the pain of that moment but of the courage, sacrifice and outpouring of love that defined our response.” Read more: NY Post


  1. Wait a minute. I thought there was SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE?! Cuomo is a classic liberal hypocrite. Why wont the Governor state WHO committed the atrocities against innocent Americans??? Were the pilots on those planes evil white right wing Trump supporters? Were they white heterosexual Rush Limbaugh listeners (like Timothy McVeigh)? How can we have a so-called moment of silence if we’re not being told what race, nationality, religion, & what Country they were from? Was it a couple of bad people doing bad stuff, like DEMOCRAT Ilhan Omar alleges? Were the buildings blown up from the inside by the government or Israelis like the conspiracy theorists are alleging? If Cuomo won’t tell us who committed the crime there can’t be a moment of silence.

  2. The children (and the rest of the world) will soon find out the names of the US Presidents/politicians/elite who were executed or arrested for their rolls in the 9/11 attack that killed more than 3,000 of their own citizens.

  3. Hypocrisy 101: You are a real hate monger, Stick to the facts , Bin Laden et al slaughtered 3000 Americans and that is enough reason for a remembrance with a moment of silence for them!!!

    • If that is the case, why were US Presidents and politicians arrested or executed by lethal injection?

      FYI, Bin Laden died on Dec 14, 2001 as a result of kidney failure and other health problems as Fox News reported then.

      • Really? Which President was killed by lethal injection? They never touched the Bush crime family that allowed the Saudis to flee America on Sep. 12th.

  4. But yet the name of God is not allowed to be mentioned in a public school. Go figure.
    Are we allowed to give a knee instead of the moment of silence? If I’m happy that the buildings came down, can I ignore the moment of silence and keep talking?
