Before you call me un-American, and everything under the sun, stand back and think.
Why do we even remember this day? Because it affected this generation? Pearl Harbor had an effect on our Grandparents, and we barely remember the date, yet, we still can't get over 9/11.
It was a tragedy, it was a depressing fucking day that we felt helpless and scared. Why do we bring it up? To raise patriotism briefly? To remind us? What's it reminding us? We lost over 1,000 civilians and then we began invading countries left and right? Fuck, noone even remembers the plane in Pennsylvania that the people over powered the hi-jackers.
And labeling everyone as "heroes" who died on 9/11. The guys on the plane were heroes. They saved hundreds of lives. Were the people in the WTC or Pentagon heroes? If you told those people if they went to work that day they'd die, would they have gone? Maybe they're martyrs at best, but not heroes. The word "Hero" should be saved for heroes.
