I don't think I've ever understood the "never forget 9/11" schtick, I mean, it's not like there's some movement to try and actively forget it or something. It was a huge part of history, the effects of which are still being felt today, no one's gonna forget it.

I feel worse for all those countless innocent middle eastern people that were killed in the aftermath of 9/11. Just imagine your city getting carpet bombed for something that happened on the other side of the world that you had no part of, that would suuuck.

'Never forget' sounds scary to me. As horrible as the event is, being so consumed with it inevitably poses unwanted risks. Never forgetting a historical event like this one, the way they force you not to forget it, can only be a reason for unnecessary mass chauvinism and paranoia. Knowing history is only as useful as you're aware how to use the knowledge. Generations of people taught in fear and trauma are always vulnerable to all sorts of exploits.

On the other hand I don't see how or why they'd silence the echos of the event.

Went to NY for the first time this summer, being where it happened made me realise how bad it must've actually been to see.
