I'm with you Jay! As someone who had family members survive the holocaust, 9/11 bothers me more as well.
It might be because it's current, but that's certainly not the thoughts I have. Of the 40 family members rounded up and sent to camps, only 2
survived until their liberation, my great-grandmother and her brother. She recounted stories to me about the times and why/when they should have
known to fight back or run. One of the main reasons that stuck with me is about the disarming of the Jews (as well as other "undesirables"). She
said, by the time word got out about families secretly being encamped, as opposed to just being "kicked out of Eastern Europe" they had no means to
fight back and no other nations would believe them that this was going on. Made sure to mention that the U.S. even turned away Jews on a boat fleeing
Germany . . . btw - no nation would receive these refugees.
All that said, since 9\11, our government has been enacting many of the same laws. Only this time, it is not a few segments of society that have
been restricted in these ways it is all of us. Time and time again this nation has shown a complete disregard for history and sticks to the "this is
America, it can't happen here" mantra. When presented with evidence that our gov lied about WMD's or Iraq's involvment, no one cared because
Saddam was still a "bad man" according to our media/gov and they were still an Islamic nation (the devil). Now I'm supposed to agree with these
uneducated or agenda driven individuals when they try to expand this form of facism . . . I'm half tempted to go along with it, so I can laugh in
their crying faces later. Fortunately, I'm not ready to give up my life or those of my children, so I have labled them the enemy. An unknowing,
brainwashed enemy . . . but, the same none the less.
