I feel like I should make some sort of obligatory 9/11 post.

So I guess this is it.

Posting pictures of the Twin Towers blowing up might help us remember.

But I'm not for remembering for the sake of remembering.

Time to make a change, America.

Last year's post. More memory-ish

not to be argumentative but...
Why bother making the "obligatory" post? I'm not against remembering an event where a lot of people died; I'm just against remembering this particular event when there have been other instances where lots of people died. What makes 2,750 more special than the thousands that die in Darfur?

I don't think we need pictures to help us remember. We are constantly reminded of what happened on September 11, 2001. It runs through our lives. It dominates domestic and foreign policy.

I think it's time for a change. I think one of the best things we could do is stop calling it "9/11". Stop giving a nickname to a horrific event. Stop acting like we're in awe of the government's response. Stop backing down as politicians take away our civil liberties. Because if we don't, all "9/11" will stand for is the day Americans decided their civil liberties and freedom weren't worth fighting for anymore.
