« Unequal But Opposite Reaction | Main | American Tragedy»

September 11, 2002


I guess this is the spot where I should be writing something solemn and introspective on the one-year anniversary of the World Trade Center attack. There's nothing I can write here that will make any of it any better. I'm not American, nor do I live in the United States (anymore), so my feelings are more sympathetic than angry. I'm no political pundit, so any opinion I offer about Bush's plan to retaliate by bombing Iraq would be grossly misinformed.

I do find it interesting how people treat today with such reverence, while November 11th (Remembrance Day) goes by with little notice taken (except for all the plastic poppies). Or December 7 (the Pearl Harbour bombing). I seriously doubt many people will colour their blogs black either of those days, despite the fact those two days commemorate some of the most important (and tragic) events in the 20th century. But that's the hypocrisy in which we live, and I'm as guilty of it as anyone.

So I guess the most appropriate thing I can do is have a private moment of silence, and remember.
