9-11: eight years later

It's been eight years already since the murderous attack on the WTC in 2001, yet has anything improved? It's clear that very little has. And there's problems arising, if the following article (via A Blog For All) is any indication:
On the morning of the 9/11 anniversary, it's expected all the local stations will once again go wall-to-wall with coverage of the name-reading ceremony at Ground Zero.

They'll do as they have for the previous seven anniversaries, tossing out commercials and carrying the coverage until the last victim's name is read.

However, there's a growing reluctance to do so, one partly driven by money.

"This is crazy," said one station insider. "Nobody wants to be the first to pull out."

From a moral standpoint, station officials know well that airing the ceremony is the right thing to do. The ceremony is New York, and it has been an emotional event each time before.
The sad thing is that sooner or later, they will stop giving the serious coverage they are to the 9-11 Memorial, and the public's memories could fade even more. All because of money.

The tragedy has continued to take its toll on people in the NY area:
More than 800 World Trade Center rescue and recovery workers have died since 9/11 -- and cancer has killed at least 270 of those heroes, new data show.

The figures also show that 33 WTC responders committed suicide.

State researchers have tallied 817 deaths of workers and volunteers who toiled at toxic Ground Zero or the Fresh Kills landfill, where rubble was sifted.
This is simply terrible, and that's why everything must be done to remind all future generations about this. It cannot be forgotten.

Others on the subject include Atlas Shrugs (plus, another one and another one), Michelle Malkin, Jihad Watch, The American Thinker, Hot Air (plus, another and another one), Bookworm Room.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
