When Did I Become Thirty?

I made this comment last year, i'll say it again, but before I start may I say that this is not aimed at anyone in particular, it's mostly aimed at this country's seemingly ever-present need to keep tragedy in the forefront.

My post from last year:

It was two years ago...yes, it was a tragedy, but for god sake's get over yourselves...we're really not that important...

Today I say it was three years ago. Yes, it was a terrible thing, and an awful day for our country, but for god's sake, let it go! "Never Forget", they say, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that anyone who lived through that day, and is old enough to remember things from one day to the next, and isn't senile, comatose, or stricken with Alzheimer's, isn't gonna be forgetting any time soon. I don't need to be reminded once a year that, "Oh, hey, yeah, there used to be those two really tall buildings in New York, didn't there? What happened to those things anyway?"

Y'know why 9/11 is an important date for me? Because on September 11, 1918 the Boston Red Sox won their last World Series Championship. Y'know when 9/11 won't be an important date? When the Sox win another championship. It's not that I don't care about what happened three years ago, it's that I've moved on.

Think of it this way, on May 23, 1999, when I was watching the WWF's Over the Edge pay per view, and they announced that Owen Hart had died, I was crushed. I wore black for a week, a WEEK. The next year, I wore black on that day, and the year after I did as well. After that, I was over it. I don't pay tribute to him on a regular basis anymore, but every once in a while it'll still strike me, and I'll wonder exactly where he'd fit into the WWE landscape at this point.

The horrible events that struck this country three years ago are the same way. I don't need to hold tributes, I don't need to light candles, I don't need to be reminded. I KNOW it happened, I was as shaken up as anyone not directly related to anyone involved in the tragedies. But I'm better now, I've moved on.

I think that it's time for us, as a country...to move on...

I agree with you. My favourite thing in the world is how like...we are constantly bombing other small countries and kicking their asses for no reason and then when we get our asses handed to us once, everyone cries and sobs. Get the fuck over yourselves. Sure, people dying sucks, but we are constantly killing people because we CAN.

The end :]

I concur.

MOVE ON, YOU DAMN YANKS. Shit happens. Even if it was Canada that was attacked...say the C.N. Tower went 'splody. I'd prolly be over it by NOW.

Call me the insensitive Canadian here...but the whole 9/11 thing got really old for me within a week of it happening. I kinda just laugh at it now. All that patriotism and "AMURKA IS THA BEST COUNTRY EVAR!" shit just came right out of the blue. A country is accosted and suddenly, they pwn.

Hell, I'm the one who said that Hasbro should make a 9/11 tribute Jenga pack....zinggggggggg!

well said! i'm so sick of this. let it go people. my fave line from ur post.... "...but for god sake's get over yourselves...we're really not that important..."

12th-Sep-2004 06:03 am (UTC)
Right the hell on....

Except in my case, I didn't pay tribute at all ... it was more like "Ah ... towers down, planes crashed. This is why I don't fly or want to go to New York. Ah well, who cares. Back to my books and writing"

Because I'm a sadistic, soulless, heartless bitch like everyone says I am...

Though I did cry when Owen Died, and reverantly put his poster up in a key spot in my room for a long time.

A-fucking-men to that. It was three years ago, GET THE FUCK OVER IT PEOPLE!

Damn, we're bombing the shit out of half the middle east, they're dying by the thousands, we lost a coupla thousand due to some religious nutjobs, and all of a sudden, everyone's so goddamn patriotic, sobby, girly "Oh no, it's THUCH a tragedy, we must defend ourselves, bluh bluh bluh!" I remember some little asswipe in my class was EXCITED as hell that we were going to war, so he was going to go donate his gun...

Anyways, America needs to get over it. Concentrate more on things that are really important. Like, let's go help the people in Africa and Asia who are SUFFERING because of overpopulation, no clean water, etc. god...

You people are terrible and shuld be ashamed of yourselves! Have some compassion. People are dead and should be remembered for their heroics.

Hahahahahaha....okay, I almost convinced myself that I cared there for a minute! ::Sigh:: I kinda feel bad that I don't care...that counts, right?
