I'm not saying we shouldn't remember what happened, or just let those responsible off the hook or anything, I just think the mass memorials need to stop. I understand grieving if you lost someone, or if you were in close proximity of what happened, etc etc.

I'm not saying we shouldn't remember what happened, or just let those responsible off the hook or anything, I just think the mass memorials need to stop.

I understand grieving if you lost someone, or if you were in close proximity of what happened, etc etc.

But its been over a decade. Its time to stop living in the past and start moving forward.

I'll forever remember the guys who drowned in the USS Arizona on Dec 7th (a significantly larger event, mind you), but we do not need 12 hours of crying and flag waving on TV every year.

We've found and killed the man who was leading the party responsible for it. We've decimated a good chunk of their organization. We've spent trillions on a war against terror.

Its time to stop and get on with our lives. No more halftime tributes, no more mass vigils, no more showing footage of crying mourners.

It happened, its terrible, and its important to remember it, but its over. We have to move on.

Edit: I'm at work all day so I won't really be able to respond until tonight
