8 thoughts on “9/11

  1. Pain fades with distance. I think the only way to make sure it doesn’t become another faux holiday is to make sure we talk to our kids about the realities of the world. We took the kiddo to the towers last time we were in NY. Talked about what happened and why it happened.

    Worse would be to just forget. Not much is made of Pearl Harbor Day.

    • True and assuming the world is in a good place 50 years from now (big assumption) probably much won’t be made of it other than the brief mention that Pearl Harbor gets. But what Pearl Harbor started ended with US victory in WWII whereas the war on terrorism seems as though it will never have an end.

      At any rate, I just don’t want to see like 9/11 commercials for sales and stuff like that, just as I wouldn’t want a store to have a “Come on Down for our Pearl Harbor Day Sale!”

  3. The commercials were disturbing, but at least they were pulled as was the Walmart display. What bothers me more is politicians using it for their own benefit.

    • The commercials just struck me as a sign that so much time has passed that people just think of it as any other “holiday” to use to sell coke or mattresses or what have you. I can’t believe it has been 15 years. It goes in the blink of an eye.

      Somehow I thought I’d be doing better than owning a blog with 3.5 readers. At least I have 3.5 though. Also, I didn’t know what a blog was then.
