I read today's poll and almost punched the screen.
"Is it time to scale back on ceremonies that commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks?"
- 54% Yes
- 46% No
To read the comments is just insulting. I'm insulted by the question flat out.
People that weren't affected, just shut the fuck up and turn off the tv or whatever else you wanna do. Act like it's another day where America is wonderful and nothing has happened.
I'm all for freedom of speech and freedom of differing opinions, but Some of us still remember
and in response to the first comment, I'll add this:
if 'they' were there, then 'they' should be celebrated. 'Their' lives were/are important. I flat out don't agree with stopping the rememberance of whomever was involved with the 9/11 attacks, directly or indirectly (victims, survivors, workers, heroes, etc).
It's like scaling back Martin Luther King day. Hey, he's been dead a while. The blacks have fully integrated into the white world. Lets move on.
- see how fucked up that sounds?
Or how about this: Lets just move on from the Holocaust. It's been like 50 years, many more than 6 and I think it's fine time that we tone down on remembering that tragedy. 'They' have a memorial and museums and kids learn about it in schools. What else do they want? Lets tone it down.
- no, that's not fucked up or anything
