I think that the USA needs to move on from September 11th.
Now before all you pseudo-patriots come attempting to sway my opinion with your “unwavering loyalty to the country”, let me just take a minute to explain things. I am an American. I’m a female. And I was a young girl when the events took place.
The events are tragic. I’m not saying that they aren’t. But the US government and the media make it out to be some worldwide catastrophe that claimed the lives of millions of people around the world, when really, the event only killed about 2,600 people, which in the grand scheme of things for a large country like the United States isn’t a huge number.
Also, we’re Americans. Not only are we extremely self-absorbed with our ignorance, fueled by the liberally biased media, we’re hardly sympathetic for our victims. We forced unspeakable violence upon the natives when we came here, we killed almost 150,000 people in dropping the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and we’ve pointlessly murdered innocent people in the Middle East.
I understand that a lot of people died, and I should be respecting them. But while we honor the dead, we can’t have these extravagant 2-hour TV specials reading the names of all these people who died 12 years after the disaster. You don’t see Japan having these insane specials reading off the names of people who died in their terrorist attacks. Yes, that qualifies as a terrorist attack.
I honestly don’t care anymore. Terrorist attacks happen all the time in other countries every day. Just because this one happened in America doesn’t make it any different. It was a terrible thing that happened, but it’s been 12 years. We killed Osama. Why we are still in Iraq, I will never know, but that’s a story for another time. The USA is comparable to a person who still clings to their ex-spouse or significant other years after they broke up.
We have to move on with our lives. Not forget about it completely, but just move on and keep in it the back of our thoughts.
Finally someone says it.
im Canadian and I even felt gulty saying it. but this post is true as fuck.
My stepfather worked for the airlines and lost his job due to 9/11, and a year and a half later he passed away. My mother’s best friend was in the pentagon when the plane hit and had to crawl her away out of it on her hands and knees. Plenty of other things happened that resulted in a cascade of pain and sorrow on my family’s part. So before anyone says I’m just some white girl who has no idea (other than the fact that I’m not white) about the events, I know very well how tragic this event was, and how painful it was for those who lost family members or friends or loved ones, this is not minimizing their suffering.
But I also agree with everything in this post. There comes a point where we need to realize what has happened, learn from it, and move on. There are thousands of terrible attacks happening across the globe that don’t get any recognition and that are just as painful. It’s time to move on. It’s been 12 years. Don’t forget, but don’t keep holding onto the past either.
