I am a conscientious objector to all the  9/11 celebramemberence stuff for the same reasons I think Valentine's Day is stupid -

1) 99% of the decorations are gratuitous and tacky

and

2) it shouldn't be a one specific day thing - it should be something that's acknowledged or remembered every day in your own way

And if feeling that makes me a jerk, well... it's certainly not the first thing to make me a jerk and I can pretty much guarantee it won't be the last.

  • I was thinking this as I clean out my RSS feeds this morning. Seems like a chance for people to talk about themselves: "on 9/11 I was..."

  • I was thinking the same thing!!!! And then I was thinking "no one gives a shit/is paying attention to your story because they're waiting to tell their own story... which isn't going to be interesting unless they happened to be a firefighter in NYC, in which case, your story seems pretty dumb"

  • You are not alone and not the only blogger who posted such an opinion. You should take a look at Joe the Peacock's 9/11 blog. I love his closing statements.
