I always cringe when I hear stuff like "We Will Never Forget". Its almost like an admission of guilt and ignorance, suggesting that under any other
circumstance, we COULD forget.
How on Earth could anyone possibly forget Sept. 11th, 2001? Has anyone forgotten Pearl Harbor? NO. Has anyone forgotten the Holocaust and Hitler?
Tsunamis? NO. Those are just as strong as ever!
"We Will Never Forget" to me, is another example of how many Americans gravitate toward a Victim-like and violent-minded media driven attitudes. If
1,000's of people die outside of America, who cares right? I feel We need a more global viewpoint of what the value of human life is.
We lost 3,000+ Hard Working American Citizens that day. But I value their memory because they were human beings with families and lives, not just
because they were Americans.
Almost 500,000 humans killed in the Tsunamis and recent disasters around Burma. You hear any Americans saying "We Will Never Forget" for them? I
As long as the majority of Americans and American Media generally only value life that is American, we will most certainly continue down this path of
ignorance that guarentees more war and strife.
You have a choice: You can focus on the problem, or be part of the solution.
