"No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
I have question, not just for Anja but for everyone who says they could not watch news coverage of the 9/11 event, did you at least try to learn the facts of the matter and think about what led up to such an event and how impacts our government and the implications for the future and how things ought to be changed or fixed? Forgive me for being curious about this but I am.
I'm not American but I did spend some time thinking about those issues after 9/11 (no research, though).
Memorial days are helpfu in terms of processing tragedy and helping to heal, I think. I'm speaking in general terms, not of this particular event. I don't know enough about how it's seen in the US to be able to make any comment on it in particular.
I know two people who don't know the foggiest thing about the timeline of what actually happened that day and who never read any of the 9/11 report. They don't want to know, but they do all the soundbite type things like "Never Forget" how can they never forget what they've never truly known?
How many of you have noticed that when you merge 9/11 you get 911?
I am not claiming anything,
Yeah, that was part of the "reason why the terrorists chose that date" dreck. It was also supposed to be First Responders Day or something like that to appreciate the folks who work for 911 and the first responders who deal with the calls.
