You will never be forgotten.
Same here. You will never be forgotten.
I'm honoring them the best way I know how.
Keeping calm and carrying on. Time to go biking and swimming.
They shouldn't have died. Let's just hope that their deaths wasn't all in vain, and that we may have learned at least something by all of this.
It saddens me that it takes a large amount of deaths for something in the US to be remembered. Fire2box said it best, honor them by moving on, the more you dwell on the events of 11 years ago, the worse off everyone is. Just a thought.
The only thing I've learn is that terrorists are still and likely always will be the worlds biggest idiots. Because guess what, NOTHING'S changed. They just lost their whole stupid jihad right there and that's why their idiots is they keep thinking they can change the world.
(Also yes I just got back from my ride to my gym and swam for about a hour and a half. Yes it was fantastic!)
The 9/11 incident (and please, I'm speaking strictly subjectively now, I do not represent anyone else) was to me a pretty clear signal that the world isn't safe. Of course, this should be pretty obvious, but I still remember when I was a little kid and first heard of it. It took some time for it to sink in, that the nation with the most powerful war-machine in the world could be attacked, on this scale, by what in essence was just a few individuals. It put things into perspective for me. Of course, since then I've seen a lot of similar incidents here on my own continent, but still.
I like to think that the event woke some Americans up to see the world for what it really is, that you can't lull yourself into a false state of perceived safety. Also, to me, it served as a pretty healthy reminder of our mortality, how easy we all can die, and how hard it is to be protected if someone's out to get you. And I mean, as long as a single person learnt something by all of this then, well, at least *something* good came out of of the atrocity.
Of course, that's just my opinion, and I hope no one is offended by it. Touchy subject and all.
I think the issue with the racism after 9/11 towards middle easterner's is simply people wear either fearful or took "be vigilant" far to strongly.
I stand to fight those who caused this
