Sadly, it appears that September 11th has passed into the realm of just another forgotten holiday.
I spent my day reminding people what happened 14 years ago on the island of Manhattan in NYC, at the Pentagon in Virginia, and in the skies above Pennsylvania. It seemed foreign to them that such a day should be remembered. I got a lot of “oh yeah…” and “has it been that long?”
Yes it was. Yes it has. 3000 people died in single act of violence, on our homeland, in OUR OWN LIFETIME, and all we say is “oh yeah…” and a passing story on the news?
I guess it’s become only a day of significance in the minds of those who originally attached any significance to it at all.
