Just as everyone else has done, so will I

A year has passed since that tragic day. I read a newspaper article on September 1, 2002 that I kept meaning to mention. This article said it perfectly. It is about whether or not America is taking this tragedy too far. I particularly liked this part of it:

"In other words, it's not about the words the politicians say on Sept. 11, not about how many hours Katie Couric broadcasts or how many pictures this newspaper or that one publishes. Rather, it's about the choices you and I make, about what we do with what we've learned. And whether our pain binds our resolve.

Because healing the wounds of Sept. 11 is not a sin. But forgetting them is."

so true...

Hmm...there is also another thing that I heard today that is an incredible song, not to be played all the time, but today seemed appropriate. It is called "She didn't know (she kissed a hero)" by Kristy Jackson. It is about the wife who's husband lead the group on the flight that crashed in Pennsylvania. He was on a business trip to LA and she kissed him twice before he left and how on the plane he called her and told her that he loves her.

I know I am too sensitive, but I can't help it. It comes with me being such a damn romantic. I can't help but cry when I heard that song. I value love above all else and it makes me feel bad when someone loses someone in a tragic situation. There is a difference between someone dying of natural causes, then someone who was murdered, mugged, or accidentally caught in the line of fire.

I have also gained a new respect for the Seattle Times. If you get one of their papers you are greeted with a drawing of the Twin Towers and below the picture it says, "In Rememberance of September 11, 2001, a moment of silence." When you open the paper, there is nothing. The Seattle Times chose to print nothing on this day...

Though I feel that people all over the world has scaled the events of September 11, 2001 too far I do believe that it is a time for us Americans to never forget. After all, we are not the first country to have been attacked by terrorism, nor will we be the last. The most important thing for everyone all over the world to remember is to keep fighting back and live your life without regret.

I think that all the media wants to do is continue scaring the American people. They dont want people to go on with their lives. They want us to remember this and not move on with our lives. This is why I have chosen not to turn on the TV. Because I am no longer scared. It is not that I dont care or feel bad that this happened it is just time for the American people to stop being scared.
