In light of the tragic event that unfolded in the USA on September 11, 2001, should Americans host parties and other recreational on the anniversary or should they continue to carry out memorial activities. If your answer is the later, is there a time frame in which the nation should either stop mourning, remember the victims in a different way, reduce the scale of the memorial activities?

People host parties? That's weird.

I think the US has politicised the event so highly that if they tried to scale back the state sponsored memorials any time soon there'd be a national outcry. I also think that given how intense it must have been for people living in NY or Washington, and the number of people who know someone that died, it's rather soon to expect them to not mourn on that day.
There were a lot of fantastic people that died in the tragedy . Fathers, mothers, sons, brothers, aunties and so on. I believe the nation should take as long as is necessary to mourn the loss of these loved ones. This date also serves to keep in mind the need to keep terrorist activity in view.

Yes I can relate to hosting parties.
Having lost two children, I now celebrate the life of my first born who died years ago and a few of us bereaved mothers used to always meet for afternoon tea/cake on the anniversary of the deaths of our children.

It is far better than staying deeply depressed all your life and something no one can understand unless they have been through it.

September 11 will always be remembered by much of the World -with sadness and despair.

If someone chooses to honour those people who died, I say, good luck to them!

As for it being a National Day -no, i do not think that should be as there are already services etc each year anyway.

For Americans Sept 11th should be a National Day of Remembrance.

Come Monday they started to move back in!

It took 13 very long years.
Some things in life should never be forgotten.

In the USA, definitely!
