|Hundreds of people choose a quicker death over the smoke and fire when trapped at the World Trade Center on the attack of September 11th, 2001. Imagine. Imagine. Imagine.|
Never ever forget.
Talking Ed Note 9-12: Some complaints have come from the picture depicting some of those who perished on 9-11. It should be noted this is not new, in fact the same picture appeared here last year. It’s not being removed as it’s part of the factual reality of those murdered. There was not one complaint last year about it. Not one.
So tell me, what’s changed?
Honoring those who were killed in the largest attack on America appears to be now considered insensitive even when their identities are completely anonymous. Some in the media have proclaimed it uncouth to even show images of the attack on the World Trade Center itself. This is a disturbing trend and MSV is not agreeable, not in the slightest.
The horror along with the savage destruction needs to be remembered exactly for what it is, not musical exposition with “Imagine” by John Lennon, verses of Kumbaya and lectures from elected officials to Americans about tolerance – especially not on 9-11.
This nation is at war with mounting casualties in Afghanistan. Whereas in the last administration there were complaints about the media’s inability to obtain pictures of soliders in coffins, today you don’t even get a picture of the heroes who have fallen or even a mention of their names anymore. If I’m wrong, show me the mainstream media links of the names and pictures of the last dozen who have died defending our nation.
In my humble opinion, those who have died can not be honored enough. Honoring them means not glossing over their murders, no mater how grisly. There are pictures available of a far more graphic nature. That wasn’t the case here. You mourn in your way and please respect how I choose mine.
I’m very sorry if you or others are offended. And there’s nothing I can do to take it back.
Neither can 9-11.
It will not be the last attack.
