Syosset, NY – In honor of the ninth anniversary of the most destructive terrorist attack ever on American soil, Tom Grant has decided that the best way that he can show his support is through updating his Facebook status. “I’ve got 350 or so friends, this is a good way to let them know that I’ve still remembered this tragic event,” said Grant. “I figure it’s literally the least I can do.” Grant has been unable to decide between a number of status messages that he thought would be appropriate. He said they’ve ranged from the simplicity of just “USA” to a longer heartfelt narrative on his appreciation for the troops. Grant isn’t sure which would garner the most ‘Likes’ and comments from his friends.
“I figure something short and sweet is easy. I’ll probably go with ‘Never Forget,’ that’s concise and everyone will know what it means.” Tom told a group of gathered reporters. “I just hope at least three or four people click the ‘Like’ button and at least one person comments. I’m not putting this out there for nothing!” As we went to press, Tom was considering changing his profile picture to an American flag, a bald eagle, or the Twin Towers to elicit a bigger response.
