i don't 'do' sappy 9/11 remembrance posts for a reason. i feel that a brief moment of silence is appropriate to acknowledge loss but that anything more is not moving forward. it is unfortunate that over 3,000 americans lost their lives 6 years ago- but we hit the 4,000 mark (officially) in iraq. who is more important? of course, the 'tally' doesn't include the foreign folk who worked in the towers- or the thousands of iraqi citizens killed. here's the deal- the families of the 9/11 victims remember their loved ones every single day- but most have moved on. that's life. isn't it about honoring the lives and not wallowing around the deaths? we can remember without the propagandist displays by our current leaders- and most do. that's honoring the dead.
