[i would first like to apologize for the typos i WILL make, its 2 in the morning and im drifting to sleep,]
i know this might be a bit late, but i just started thinkign about it and it got me steaming mad.
people usualy tend to remember where they are and what they are doing when somethign important in the world happens, for instence, on 9/11 i was in 6thgrade art, making potery. a teacher came running in and turned the radio on to listen in, she was crying, and i also noticed many of the other teachers were botherd, we left school early that day, they keept talking about towers... i didnt know what school had to do with towers but i was glad i was coming home. i walk into my house and my mom is watching the tv, the video of the planes hitting the towers showing over and over again, she had a blank face and didnt say anything to me,
my point is. most people today dont remember that, they dont remember where they were, they dont remember the 343 brothers we lost that day, they dont remember seeing the sight of those two towers falling... well i will tell you soemthing, i remember.. and to this day, when i see a video of the towers falling, a tear comes to my eye.
Did you know that at my school we didnt even have a moment of silence on 9/11/08? there was no speaches over the speaker of the men lost, no prayers, no videos of it, nothing.. and tell me, why? did people forget or do they just not care anymore?
A buddy of mine that i met at a fire academy lives in NJ, and he told me they did have a moment of silence at their school which made me feel better, but what he told me next made me furious, a girl actualy asked "what is so important about 9.11?"... how does someone so close to New york not remember something like that? did they forget or is it shear ignorence?
Did these people forget about 9/11 because they dont live in NY?
did these people forget about 9/11 because they didnt know anyone who died?
maybe they just wernt affected?
or maybe they just dont care...
someone please tell me why people in this world dont come to notice something as important as that...
because i dont get it,
i just dont,
do they not remmeber?
or is it that they just dont care?
