America was the first country to use nuclear warheads, 9/11 was just karma.

((I guess I'm in a raw mood today, sorry Erin...))

I realize you did this because you care more than other people do but it still kind of feels like you're minimizing it, because everyone's been kind of trained to use some words and not others.

It wasn't really "unfortunate and sad"...
... that's the kind of thing people say when they see a cat get hit by a car and die...

9/11 was horrific and terrible and infuriating and stupid and disgusting...
... a level of violation that can diminish your life forever.
And I didn't even have any family or friends who died there!

I wish everyone would just agree that religious truths are so unknowable that no one should go out and kill someone because of a religious dispute or because some pastors or imams or even presidents have demonized them

Im so mad that our school didn't even mention it. I sadly forgot what day it was then i asked my mom for the date and she said 9/11 and then I had realized what the day was. Our school is stupid. :I I think its very sweet for you to post this and that even though your british you remembered this day and saw how the date was important. thank you.

Gotta say that the whole idea of "never be forgotten" thing is not right. Who remembers the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing, or the DC Sniper, or Pearl Harbor? I say give it a max of 50yrs and it will be a relatively small cliffnote in history, something that only the elderly will care about.

That may be true , but since it only happened about a decade ago , we might as well reflect on it because it's very recent . Also , I'm sure to people whose relatives who have died in 9/11 will never forget them .

Um, quite a few people remember Pearl Harbor. There are also similar memorials for the Oklahoma City Bombing as well. The DC Sniper ordeal, was very much a domestic murder spree as opposed to a terrorist act. The only people that do not remember or commemorate Pearl Harbor are those that do not care about 1) their history or 2) anything outside of their own existence.

Yeah but you gotta remember that people these days don't really care about history, and much more people are becoming more self-centered as well. I know plenty of people that don't think that anything outside the US matters in the least because it will never affect them. But once a generation or two has passed only scholars and those who lost loved ones in any violent act will miss/remember them, but outside of those people many will forget fairly quickly. And as a minor note while the DC Sniper thing is debatable as being a terrorist act, I would think it qualifies as it happened to random citizens over a fairly long period of time. People were afraid to leave their houses to fear of being the next victim.

I do see your point. I think that eventually the self-centeredness will subside and a new wave of points of view will come into focus. America seems to go through this natural flow of attention and self-centeredness. Look at America pre and post WW1 and WW2 and look at America today and it is eerily similar.

I remember watching the news story for this in day care that day. My mom was freaking out because my dad was working at the Naval Air Station here, and she thought that they would try to attack there too. The saddest (is that a word?) thing to me though, is that not many people think about the two other places attacked that day as well.

I like this photo though. You executed it well :)

Your school never mentioned it? o: My school had a minute of silence for it. Despite the fact that I barely remember what happened on that day, considering I was very young at the time, I still think it was a very tragic and unfortunate time. On Tumblr, there was someone who was talking about it and they kept getting asks from people saying "Who cares about 9/11?" and stuff like that. It really sickened me that someone would say that, especially to someone who was affected by 9/11.

I know right ? That's very true , I absolutley hate people who are all like 'ungh who cares' . But you're american so it's right for you to have a minute's silence , but even though i'm british it should've at least of been mentioned even if it didn't happen in our country ..

Oh I see, well they could of at the very least made some type of mention of it. It just seems like it should be where everyone cares about it, not just people who live in America.

I'm really glad that upset you! Not the fact that you were upset, but that you cared enough to think about it. There was a girl in my grade who posted on facebook on 9/11 "I was so confused why everyone was talking about 9/11 today until I saw the date." It's like my god! You can be as ignorant and stupid as you want but don't go on facebook and tell every one about it! I bet there are people you know who lost family members or friends that day! Show some respect! Love this picture! :hug:

Aww thank you (: and I completely agree with the ignorant and stupid people thing . In fact , when I mentioned it was 9/11 last tuesday , this girl was like 'omg no one cares about it , it's american and it's in the past move on' and I was like 'well the holocaust was in the past but we still reflect on that !' argh she made me so mad .

I hate stupid people... Seriously if you're gonna be rude, keep it to yourself. next time someone says that you should say "Oh! Well you know what? I had an uncle (or other family member) that was killed that day! So keep your opinions to yourself!" THEN see what she says!

May I say I adore the fact you're British and you still stopped to remember victims. Not just for America, but I have a hunch you think on this as a general whole: from any disaster (attacks, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.) that hit another land/nation/providence/country.

It's a shame there isn't many comments on such a strong statement. Even though the statement can be linked to daily basis even; those you love that may have passed will never be forgotten. ♥
