Thank you for posting that link. We can never forget what happened that day. That wound is still open in my heart, as I almost came to tears just watcing that video, realizing the pain is still very much alive.
I have seen this in an email a friend sent me a month ago, thanks again for posting this.

Okay, I'm probably going to get grilled for this, but it has to be said ...
Honestly, I'm all in support of remembering 9/11 ... but most of this stuff is just overkill. Yes it was a terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE thing ... and it's something that we could/should never forget.
My Brother In-Law was in tower 9 (the 3rd building to fall), he made it out but as far as his life is concerned, we lost him that day. So I'm not speaking as somebody who has no personal link to 9/11.
But for these day long things to be going on ... it's ridiculous.
Also ... is it just me or do most of the news reports on 9/11 only focus on the WTC ... as do most of the documentaries, etc. Uhm ... HELLO, there were 2 other incidents on 9/11 where people lost their lives.
EVERY news report I saw today was from ground zero, when they showed the events in Shanksville and the Pentagon there were no reporters on the ground, no live reports, no rememberences with those people that were there ... only in NYC.
WTH??? Has everybody else bought into this "We suffered more than everybody else because we are New York" mentality???
Again ... I'm fully in support of memorials, a moment of silence, etc, etc, etc. But for the past 2 or 3 days it's been non-stop 9/11 coverage. Enough already. Please!!!!
