The past week has been heavy. We have been inundated with documentaries, pictures, expert analysis, people’s stories, etc. of 9/11. I didn’t watch any of it. My partner still can’t watch that stuff. Plus, it’s just depressing. 3497 lives lost. Families devastated. I didn’t want to see the twin towers collapsing in a week-long loop on CNN, MSNBC, and FOX.
I don’t know. People might have needed this stuff to help them deal with it, so I’d never begrudge them of that. I just had to hang back.
It’s 9/12. It’s no longer the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It’s time to get back to working on the problems that plague us in 2011. We’re still in 2 wars and bankrupt from them. Our economy is in the toilet, and we’re more divided than ever. These are things that we should be working on. Maybe we can shift our focus from 10 years ago to now.
