Today marks 11 years since the September 11th attacks. I think it is critical that we take a moment to reflect on this date and also to do that every year. There are some who argue that "they don't need to be reminded" or that they "still remember" without the photo and video tributes that circulate the internet. True, there is a lot of manipulative, tacky garbage on the web, but there is also a lot of heartfelt sincerity for who and what we lost that day. In addition, there are a lot of young people who don't even know what 9/11 is or the depths of what it was about. What if we to take the same "I don't need to be reminded" viewpoint with The Holocaust or any other atrocities that have occurred throughout history?
"He who forgets is destined to remember" - we need to try our best to take what we can from the past and learn from it, and hopefully it won't happen again.

If we don't acknowledge the real criminals? If we don't punish Bush and his administration (his closest crime perpetrators Rumsfeld and Cheney)?
