NEW YORK (PIX11)—
As 50 carefully selected families prepare to join President Barack Obama for a ceremony at the World Trade Center site Thursday, one of the invited 9/11 families have decided to pass on the Commander-in-chief’s visit.
Although many consider it to be a once in a lifetime invitation, the Vigiano family of Deer Park, Long Island have respectfully declined.
50 carefully selected families, I wonder what kind of criteria had to be met for the 50 who were selected.
Obama said he didn’t want to “spike the ball” but it looks like he’s dancing around with it instead.
UPDATE: Here’s what some families of 9-11 victims had to say.
