Only two years after the worst tragedy in the history of the United States, I’m amazed of the lack of “prime time” television coverage given to this day. There is only one sixty minute show looking at the current state of a few topics. NBC actually cancelled a thirty minutes show it was going to do! Thirty minutes? Only sixty minutes? That’s all the networks are willing to give up when all they are showing are repeats anyway? This deeply saddens me.
I remember all too well that day… I sat in front of the television for almost two days in a state of shock… numb and confused that something like this happen to over 3,000 innocent fellow Americans. Unfortunately, like the day that JFK died or Columbia blew up on liftoff, it will be etched in my mind forever. But unlike other recent events, this one we can never forget! What worries me is that we already are.
If it were up to me, this would be a holiday. All Americans would take the day off and remember those who died. Those who helped people to survive. Those who made a difference. Then, we would collectively work on how to prevent this from happening again… how ever that might be. We can never fall asleep at the wheel again!
