The attacks 17 years ago are the only traumatic event I can think of that people constantly urge others to remember.

I envy the kids too young to recall it or have an emotional connection to it.

Those who lived through it don't need to be told to #neverforget

How could they?
If you want to teach kids about something to #neverforget how about never forgetting that we're still involved in the war that sprung from those attacks, 17 years later, with no end in sight.

We've rebuilt ground zero, but we haven't rebuilt our interest in foreign incursions.
Never asking Americans to sacrifice anything other than 1% of their sons and daughters.

Never questioning why we're still there & when we'll leave.

Never paying attention to the longest war in our history once the initial invasion happened.

#neverforget turned into #nevermind
#neverforget that Bush urged us to go shopping & never asked us to do anything else.

#neverforget that we've never asked the wealthiest to help fund these wars & instead cut their taxes.

#neverforget that thousands in Iraq & Afghanistan who had nothing to do w 911 were killed.
Today is a sad day, not just for us, but the world. Innocent ppl had their lives ruined bc of what happened that day & the days following.

Yes, #neverforget the attacks, but #neverforget the damage caused trying to fix the world while giving the least amount of thought & effort.
And that's all I'll say about 911 today.
