    Dear Mayor Bloomberg,

    We, the electronically undersigned, are appalled that a statue of three brave firefighters, raising the American Flag at the WTC disaster, would be altered in any manner.

    What Firefighters McWilliams, Johnson and Eisengrein did, inspired the people of NYC and the nation in one its darkest hours. This inviolable photograph, taken by Tom Franklin of the Bergen Record, has shaken national patriotism to the surface.

    The statue of this historic event is not necessarily meant to honor our fallen heroes, and to misrepresent that moment in history is disgraceful. Just as the sculpture of the flag raising at Mt. Surabachi (also from an actual photo) stirred patriotism, it was never meant to honor fallen soldiers.

    We respectfully request that you reconsider making any changes to the sculpture of this historic photo.

    We suggest that another sculpture, depicting every category of hero, including civilians and rescue workers, would be welcomed by all.

    Statue should remain as originally intended. You cannot change history, however, another separate statue depicting different races would be appropriate
