  •  I wasn't in NYC or DC that day (11+ / 0-)

    but I really don't like the remembrance stuff either.
    I usually hole up in my house with a pile of videos on 9-11.

    That said, for those who need it or feel it eases their grief, I'm all for it--I just really don't like it for myself.

    To the extent that I can do anything in honor of the people who died, I try to fight for a better and freer America whenever I can.  Mostly on the other 364 days a year.

    •  I WAS in (2+ / 0-)

      DC that day, and I don't want to relive it.

        and don't really want to (no offense).

        I completely understand why you don't want to relive it.

        •  I was working at Ft. Belvoir (0+ / 0-)

          when it happened.  All the MPs, were called out in full battle rattle, with their rifles locked and loaded to repel any possible threat.  The post was at Threatcon Delta, and I thought I wasn't going home that night.
