9/11 Fading Faster Than The Kennedys?
I recall seeing on television within a year or so of 9/11, a drawing that reportedly was made in a Middle Eastern land that depicted the attack on the twin towers, complete with palm trees (as to suggest the painter was unaware that palms don't grow at New York City latitudes). I couldn't google that image up, but eerily similar is a prayer card given to me in Penn Station on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.
Having high security at airports etc. is "normal" for many young people today.
Is 9/11 fading faster in the public memory than previous major historical milestones?
Nowadays, November 23rd comes along and you hear next-to-nothing about the day President John F. Kennedy was murdered in Dallas, TX.
December 7th comes and goes - you don't hear much about Pearl Harbor Day anymore. Or World War II. Not as much as once was.
Some people are suggesting we're "forgetting" September 11 in the modern internet age where everything is so accelerated.
What do YOU think about that?
I'll be posting a major 9/11 article around 6pm.
