I couldn't agree more with This.

Seriously. Now, I don't want to come off as a terrible person here (which is why it's here and not on Facebook or something) but honestly, I think it can stop now.

No, I'm not saying we should forget. I know I never will.

But I think rehashing the same thing OVER AND OVER is ridiculous. Oklahoma was finally let go after 5 or 6 years. We're finally hearing less about Katrina. Can't we let this fade a little too?

Yes, it's the anniversary of a tragic, horrible terrorist attack. But does everyone need to re-live the exact time and place when they heard the news? do we need to hear about it ALL DAY on EVERY radion station and TV channel? Do we need to listen to the crappy music that was written to 'commemerate' the day (or just make money off of it, in most cases)?

I hear '9/11' and I remember what happened, I remember where I was, I am quiet for a moment- I don't need to hear about it, or talk about it, or read about it all day long. A Moment is all I need.

I know I'm probably in the minority here. Really, that's fine. I just need to vent about this. I didn't know anybody who was there. I'm not even sure if I know someone who knew someone was there. I know people who know people who knew someone...but that may be as close as it gets. I know that the people who lost loved ones still hurt- that will never go away. But reliving it every single year certainly isn't going to help.
