The New York City ‘Tribute in Lights’ to remember 9/11 is back on after the previous cancellation by NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Controversy surrounded the cancellation of the ‘Tribute in Lights’ when officials said it was canceled due to ‘concerns over coronavirus.’ New Yorkers had seen huge protests in the city with violence and looting, so when this memorial was canceled, the silent majority spoke out in a big way.
Eric Trump made a great point!
This says it all. Our Mayor can play arts and crafts in front of Trump Tower but he can’t shine the Tribute Light Memorial at the World Trade Center in memory of 9/11 https://t.co/lufzfWl2RF

Fox News Anchor Janice Dean tweeted out her disappointment in the cancellation and questioned the reasoning for it:
As the wife of a surviving member of the @fdny during the September 11th attacks, this is a disgrace. If you can have "peaceful protests" and the MTV music awards, you should be able to find ways to remember those who died on September 11th, 2001. https://t.co/DeWTQzVa1W

Barstool Sports made a great argument questioning why the memorial lights can’t go on:

Governor Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor de Blasio heard loud and clear that this tradition MUST go on!
