They keep making these documentaries... It's like they need to get the story of every single person on tape. When they see it over and over again, the pain from five years ago, they get sad. Then they get angry. And that's how they justify what their government does. To make sure it never happens again.
The US goverment has managed to scare Americans shitless. Then it spread across the pond and Europeans got scared shitless too. There's no easier way to control people than to scare them. And that's what they did.
Some Americans say they need this annual reminder of what happened five years ago. Once I told a guy it's the past, it's time to move on and learn from what happened and not live it over and over. He said it's not the past, it's the present, it will never be the past.
Others feel the pain over and over because they are never allowed to let go. Every year they are reminded of this day and they can't get away from it.
What was America's tragedy has become the day when they portray their pain for the world to see. Tomorrow they'll find a new country to bomb and what can we do - after all, they're still suffering the loss of the 2,997 people who disappeared that day.
How many more have died because of that day? The number doubles just by counting the American and coalition soldiers alone.
I hurts. Of course it does. But a present without a past will never be a future. If you can't move forward, the pain will never go away.
It's not a bad thing to remember. But scratching a wound before it's healed, over and over, will only make it worse. Either way, the memories will never go away. The future will be faced with scars. But even they fade. If you let them.
