Ya know I see all these discussions posted on September 11th; but I have yet to see one posted about 9/11. I could be wrong, but we are all sending e-mails about never forgetting... I see nothing! Maybe because I was there it hits me harder then the rest of you. This is our country, support us! This was the most devastating day of my life, I didn't know wether I was going to live or die, I lived. We "say" we will never forget.. but have we?.. I lost my twin sisters in this tragedy, Can't we take the time to at least give respect?

Respect has nothing to do with posting on a public forum. Not everyone shows respect in the same way. Why are you judging people because they aren't posting here? How do you know what they have done in their own homes, in their churches, in their schools, in their communities?

By the way, there HAVE been discussions started on this topic. You may not be friends with those that started them, or maybe aren't subscribed to the interest area they put them in, so you wouldn't see them.

I don't think people will ever forget about 9/11. I know I certainly won't by my own doing. Like many others, I don't see a need to keep reopening old wounds, by talking about a very sore subject in American history. Yes for some talking about it, helps speed the healing process, but for others they have chosen to heal in a different nature. It's been 7 years now, we all need a rest from these old wounds we all hold on to, being reopened every September 11th. And before anyone goes off on me about not knowing what it's like to lose a loved one suddenly, I have gone through it many times during my existence on this planet. I do sympathize for those families that lost loved ones very tragically on that day, but I don't see how my talking about it, helps them in any manner. That is why I didn't post anything about it and won't be posting anything about it next September 11th. So just because people aren't talking about it as much as before, doesn't mean we have forgotten about it. My thoughts are with you and yours. Brightest of blessings to you.

i saw dozens and dozens of posts about 9/11 on myLot yesterday. also, did you watch the news at all??? there were ceremonies all over the country from coast to coast. did you ever think some people want to remember that day in silence?.......and some people don't want to remember that day at all. after all, it's not a party, it was a very tragic event. and young men and women are still dying EVERYDAY over what happened that day. i'm sorry for your loss, but i think everybody in the United States lost something that day. we lost the comfort of being SAFE in our own country and that things like that don't happen here. so i don't think anybody will EVER forget that September morning........maybe you're just not looking in the right places.

Umm yes, I did watch the news, do you even have a clue what I am referring to? All those people lost their lives, my 2 sisters included... do not frown on me. I am perhaps NOT looking in the right places if I get feedback such as this, I do apologize. sorry

I think what brought on the negative responses was 'can't we take the time to at least give respect?'. I don't know of anyone who doesn't give respect that day, in one way or another. As a nation, we show our respect every Sept. 11th, in one way or another. If you check out my profile I'm sure you will find the discussion I began, days before the 11th.
