SOUND OFF: Has America Gotten Tired of Commemorating 9/11?
While we haven’t forgotten have we moved on?
Did you know today was the 11th anniversary of the attacks on America on September 11, 2001. It is a day we will likely not forget but will we continue to commemorate? Last year we recognized the momentous ten year anniversary by celebrating the opening of the 9/11 reflecting pools memorial at the World Trade Center. But this year the anniversary seems rather anticlimactic. No politicians speaking at “Ground Zero,” no fan fare and even the media, while covering the events, has decided to mix in a few top stories for the day.
While the country is forever changed by the attacks, we seem to have accepted our new normal. For those who live in New York City, the outlandish security around the city has become a fact of life we’ve accepted and for those who don’t, life has gone on. We haven’t forgotten but have we moved on? Sound off: Has America Gotten Tired of 9/11
