It seems like 9/11 is used every year as a vehicle for a lot of nasty political rhetoric, which is disrespectful to all who were (and are) affected by the tragedy. I'm afraid this year, with the 10th anniversary, we'll only see more of that.
It's not a day to forget, but it is a day to quit celebrating like a holiday of sorts? Just for the pure and simple fact that it continues to bring hardship on those who lost loved ones and prevents them from moving forward.
It's not of any comfort, but at least the man behind it is no more...
My thoughts are with all those who lost family and friends.
There wasn't a time on Earth without war.
People die every day. Losing a loved one is somebody's story every day. Life goes on whether you're ready or not. Nobody's celebrating, just remembering and giving respects.
I'll add an adequate movie quote here:
"If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever." (The Crow, 1994)
People are already unable to forget the event. Remembering and giving respects?
Is going to be announced or remembered again in 10 years? And, if so, for what purpose? None whatsoever.

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