I'm with Peter.
Yes I know it was a tragic event, yes I know we should remember those who were lost, but we can't keep bringing this back up, we need to let it go.
Like what Never Enough said about the tributes and what not, they can't keep milking the shit out of this every year.
An interview with a person who got out of the towers alive, but lost his fellow co-workers said he hates how he has to be reminded of this every year. It's alright if there's a mentioning about it, but all of these programs with pictures of the towers, tribute music, and films playing are just way too much. If I were this man, I would be horrified if I had to relive what happened back in 2001. I don't blame him for lashing out against the networks that air tributes and the sort.
Fuck you for the disagree.
You don't hear anyone saying "remember Vietnam".
This touches on what brett said. Ive heard stories from old war vets, and they were never good. They would rather not have it even mentioned to them because of terrible memories of what they did there. Not only that but also lost friends and war buddies. Nobody wants to be reminded of death.
Surviving 9/11 for them is all the remembrance they need. It's like opening old wounds. They won't go away if you don't leave it alone and let it heal.
To be completely honest, I thought I hit agree D:
Same for Never Enough
People do remember vietnam.
Yes this was a tragic day, yes ~3000 people died from it, but it's been 10 years since this happened.
Time to calm down about this a little, cold as it may be, but I don't need to be seeing "Remember 9/11" whenever I turn a city block like I did the year after the event.
11 not 10 .
You are entitled to opinion, but you aren't in the same country and probably don't take it as personally (unless you knew someone there of course). A lot of people likely either lost friends/loved ones, or almost did (like myself). Something of this scale and of this devastation will always be mourned.
There will always be some survivors or the family of those who didn't survive who don't like the memorials. But there are also those that find comfort that their loved ones are being remembered.
You guys don't have the day off or anything do you?
This single action changed the world North America.
Remember when America invaded Canada? We lost so many men, who's wives and children were waiting for them to come home. Thanks a lot, assholes. xD
Pretty much this.
Remember Pearl Harbor
Remember Kennedy Assassination
Remember Lincoln Assassination
Remember Lt.| on velocity
Remember Hurricane Katrina
Remember 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami
Remember 2011 Japan Tsunami w/ Nuclear Radiation disaster
I could go on and on with this. I understand that people want to "mourn" over these incidents, but really all it's doing is reminding the actual victims of those horrible days. Memorials are OK, but flooding the media world(tv) with documentaries is just sad.
No @Kyle there is no day off on 9/11. But flags are usually at half mast during this day to show respect to the falling.
No, we don't get work off or school off or anything like that.
Damn you Badgriuel.
We did twice, after that, it's been treated more as a thing. Oh well, glad you guys have healthcare now for the first responders.
Cleaned up the thread, hopefully people can remain on topic.
How about we just remember all of history less we be doomed to repeat it again?
