Fatigue

Isn't anyone else suffering from 9/11 fatigue? I mean, c'mon people. It's been three years. Yes, we need to watch out for signs of terrorist attacks. But do we have to constantly beat the same dead horse about how tragic everything was and how we all have to feel guilty that we didn't die that day in someone elses place (which isn't a legitimate stance in my view anyway)? It's time to move on, America. Act like adults and let go of your paralyzing grief. Live your lives in the present again. Our continually bemoaning of the fall of the towers will not make us stronger, and it doesn't honor the memories of the dead. It's just moaning and wailing and no longer serves any useful purpose.

Y'know, until I read your post, I'd completely forgotten that tomorrow was 9/11. Huh.

It must be my news sources...Listening to NPR too much, I guess.

A big yes here. It's almost like they're trying to milk a tragedy, which is just beyond tasteless. Which is just compounded by the fact that I know at least some of the 'conspiracy theory' stuff surrounding the event is true.

You couldn't be more right about folks living their lives in the present again...

What's almost?;)...The Republicans appear to believe it is a way to reelected..
