I think that over the passage of time, more people will see 9/11 as just another day on the calendar.

The idea is sad, but people not directly affected by 9/11 will remember it less faithfully.

Based on the results of surveys asking people about things like who the hijackers were, etc, I'd say that most people have forgotten a hell of a lot about 9/11.

I am weary of the increasing ritual of observance.

I don't want to hear or read anyone's "where i was" story. I don't want to share mine.

I kinda think the truthers need to be rounded up into camps for reeducation. I think this would cause most of them intense bliss in knowing that they were right about how evil the government is and how badly it wants to silence them. Plus it might silence them.

I mourn the attacks, and i mourn what our nation did in response to them.

I just wish Bush would have named the day with some sense of memorializing the dead, like maybe Remembrance Day, or something. Instead, he had to come up with something as shallow and jingoistic as Patriot Day. Really, Patriot Day - - instead of solemnly recalling the murders of three thousand people, it makes one think of marching bands strutting down the street, singing at the top of their lungs: "It's a grand old flag, it's a high flying flag!! !!" Had Bush given the day an actually serious name, befitting remembering the murderous attack, people might be more inclined to recall the day.

Yeah, and it's become a day when people try to show off how patriotic they are.

It's sickening.

Nobody cares anymore, we killed Osama in 2011 vengeance has been made and justice has been served, yet we forget the crimes we have done with Hiroshima and Nagasaki which dwarf 9/11 for us!

I am skeptical if Bin Laden was actually killed. There is no proof.

Also what's this rubbish on the video "Freedom isn't free!"? That is one of the biggest oxymora I've seen in my life.

However what happened on September 11th, 2001 was a tragedy and I wish all the best to the families of the victims.

Dresden was worse than hiroshima or nagasaki.

And we've caused the deaths of more civilians than all 3 of those events in iraq and Afghanistan.

Freedom isn't free. Somebody has to pay the price for freedom even if it isn't you. :roll:

There is nobody in a position to know who has not said that he is dead.

But i suppose not having seen it with my own eyes that maybe he is alive, and so are elvis and hitler and jimmy hoffa. Also the easter bunny is real.

Hitler would be over 125 years old by now so it is extremely unlikely that he is dead. All hypotheses cannot be deemed correct until proven true. Even though it is unlikely Hitler is alive, there is no proof.

The movie Zero Dark Thirty, which was released about 18 months after Bin Laden was killed goes through the motions in extreme detail, so if you're skeptical, watch Zero Dark Thirty.
