Of course we shouldn't forget 9/11. The people who did it, whoever you think they are, have not seen justice and faced what they have done.
What we should do, is treat 9/11 like the historic event it is, and not like a current event. It happened almost ten years ago. Young teenagers today
don't even remember the era prior to 9/11.
We should not make the mistake of making September 11 our national tragedy and a part of what defines us as Americans.
Yes, it was very sad, yes, we shouldn't forget, but we don't need to keep acting like it happened yesterday either. Time moves on. When a nation holds
a grudge, they can't recover. Look at the African American community today, how even despite decades of equality and 150 years of freedom, they still
can't pull themselves up, because many of them (not all of them) still hold a grudge. Look at the Israelis, who can't trust anyone because they
haven't been able to move on from what happened to them in Europe nearly a lifetime ago. Do we, Americans, want to be a victim
To the people who actually lost family and friends in 9/11, they can grieve as long as they need to, but the fact is that makes up less than 0.1% of
Never forget, but never sulk either!!!
