In Breezy Point, usually an outdoor mass on the evening of 9/11 is held at the 9/11 Memorial, Tribute Park (Rockaway Point Blvd and Beach 218th St), but I haven't been able to confirm this year's. Parking is possible at the church across the street, or else farther east on Rockaway Point near Beach 209th. Even if there isn't an event, the Breezy Point 9/11 Memorial at Tribute Park is a profound place to visit and remember. - John Roleke

You suicide bombers and terrorists
have been lied to by your "leaders".

Paradise and 7 virgins aren't reserved for murderers
only the gaping jaws of hell.....
from which there is no return trip.

You'd better check your plane tickets next time !

We'll send you some marshmellows.
