It is about everyone's rememberence. My experience included. Look at it this way Cheif, both are anniversaries. Both are on the same day. I have a unique perspective about 9/11 that no one else on this website can share. Try to imagine yourself having to drive from Las Vegas to Dallas in a UHaul with only luggage and your wife's wedding dress in it. Imagine yourself going to Hoover Damm, and the police telling you to turn around b/c you are in a non passenger vehicle. We had to go to west to go east (made us go through Needles Cali.) We were in that vehicle, btw, b/c the airports were closed and noone knew how the hell to get out of Vegas. There were no shows, the gaming tables were empty. This was to be the happiest day of ourt life. Instead our honeymoon was cut short the day of our marriage, thanks to the terrorists.
Fast forward to you ... now tell me that 9/11 impacted your life more. I don't think you can. If we hadn't set that date, She was to be in the Marriott WTC that week for business. Thank God we told our employer to screw off, otherwise she woulda been in one of the towers that day. Now agian, Cheif, tell me, was my life impacted by 9/11?
Now that you have read this, I think I deserve to write anything about 9/11 that I want to. Peace be with you as you worry about what I should and should not type.
And I might add that 9/11 is as sacred to me as Christmas and Easter.
