    Why would you want to remember it? :confused:
    It happened, it's over. We can pray for the families of those lost or harmed, do things to stop it from happening again, but the obsession with memorabilia and the fascination with video of it is weird to say the least.
    If you lost someone there, would you want to see the scene played over again everywhere, reminders everywhere, emails about it, links to videos of it, seeing it shown on television over and over, people talking about it all the time?

    There are lots of significant events that we remember. To pretend it never happened is wrong, we need to deal with the grief, the emotions and the justice issues. September 11th is one of those events. But to a considerable degree i agree with Gina, sometimes too much is made of the obsession with the event and moving forward with the rest of life is forgotten. And I'm sure lots of other things happened on September 11th - many of them good.

    Incidentally, in Australia the event actually happened on September 10th .... and we write the day/month different so it does sometimes get confusing. can be read as 9th November ...

    Regards

    Wow....I knew this was coming.
    We Americans seem to have a short attention span.

    We were attacked. On our own soil.
    There are people in the world who would do it again tomorrow, if they could.
    I want my family safe from those people.

    Never Forget.

    I saw the smoke rising on the horizon. My unit went on alert within an hour. Living on base, but my kids were at an off-base school. It was their first experience with armed guards coming on the buses to search them and their school backpacks - just so they could get to their homes on the base. A friend of mine stayed home sick on the morning one of the jets flew right into his office space and took the lives of many of his friends and coworkers. I suppose he continues to deal with feelings of guilt - even though I believe it was God that preserved his life.

    No American should ever forget what happened on that day. Remember every detail.

    It's ironic, isn't it? Before that day, we complained about how the Russian government was treating the problems in Chechnya. Now they complain about how we handled our terrorist problems, and they get hit again.

    To be honest with you it's like remembering the revolutionary war, Civil war or the 2 World wars. They had a significant impact on how we lead our lives. I don't think one american was left unchanged by the events of 9-11. To be honest, who hasn't changed? Who has remained the same against those who wish to destory us because we favor peace and freedom for everyone, not just ourselves.

    We sit in a country that guarantees freedom of any kind of expression. We sit in a country that will not kill you for not agreeing with the leaders. It is our right!

    I don't think we could ever ...... ever ....... FORGET!

    Debate and discuss all you want. No one disagrees that 9-11 changed every single person living in the US, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, political party, or economic background. In fact, I remember the days following. It seemed for a moment like there was no age, race, gender, religion, political party, or economic background. For a brief moment, we were all one. I don't wish to relive 9-11. But I don't wish to forget that day, or the days following.

    Everyone, remember to fly your American flag on the weekend of 9-11. Lay down politics. Lay down your religius affiliation. Lay down your race, age and gender. Lay all these down. Then, without agenda, pick up your American flag, and fly it in front of your house. Proudly. Humbly. Quietly.

    The difference one day makes.

    On 9.10.01 there were people fighting against praying in schools.
    On 9.11.01 you would have been hard pressed to find a school where someone
    was not praying.

    On 9.10.01 there were people who were trying to separate each other by race,
    sex, color, and creed.
    On 9.11.01 they were all holding hands.

    On 9.10.01 we thought that we were secure.
    On 9.11.01 we learned better.

    On 9.10.01 we were talking about heroes as being athletes.
    On 9.11.01 we relearned what hero meant.

    On 9.10.01 people went to work at the World Trade Center as usual.
    On 9.11.01 they died.

    On 9.10.01 people were fighting the 10 commandments on government property.
    On 9.11.01 the same people all said "God help us all" while thinking "Thou
    shall not kill".

    On 9.10.01 people argued with their kids about picking up their room.
    On 9.11.01 the same people could not get home fast enough to hug their kids.

    On 9.10.01 people picked up McDonalds for dinner.
    On 9.11.01 they stayed home.

    On 9.10.01 people were upset that their dry cleaning was not ready on time.
    On 9.11.01 they were lining up to give blood for the dying.

    On 9.10.01 politicians argued about budget surpluses.
    On 9.11.01 grief stricken they sang "God Bless America".

    On 9.10.01 we worried about the traffic and getting to work late.
    On 9.11.01 we worried about a plane crashing into your house or place of
    business.

    On 9.10.01 we were irritated that our rebate checks had not arrived.
    On 9.11.01 we saw Palestinians celebrating people dying in the USA.

    On 9.10.01 some children had solid families.
    On 9.11.01 they were orphans.

    On 9.10.01 the president was going to Florida to read to children.
    On 9.11.01 he returned to Washington to protect our children.

    On 9.10.01 we e-mailed jokes on the Grif.net.
    On 9.11.01 we did not.

    So three years later, what do we do?
    On Saturday 9/11 pray, remember and be thankful.
    On Sunday 9/12 pray, remember and be thankful.
    On Monday 9/13 pray, remember and be thankful.
    On Tuesday 9/14 pray, remember and be thankful.
    On Wednesday 9/15 pray, remember and be thankful.
    On Thursday 9/16 pray, remember and be thankful.
    On Friday 9/17 pray, remember and be thankful.

    You get the direction . . . Keep it going . . .

    As president Roosevelt said concerning the attact on Pearl Harbor; "This is a day that will live in infamy." I don't think we should forget 9/11, but I think we each need to examine ourself and see what we can do to make this a stronger nation. My parents , and wife are all dead, and have been for a while; I love them dearly but I wouldn't want to have them forever laying in an open casket for me to constantly review.
    With the love jesus gave me,

    Innocent lives were taken on the 11th. Heroes gave their live to save others. Why would anyone want to forget this? I'll never forget.
