My 9/11 Tribute?
Is it wrong for me not to want to see anything else today about 9/11? It's a rhetorical question so don't answer. I know it's the 5th anniversary of the event, but I don't want to hear about it today. This is nothing negative against those who have suffered more than I can imagine. I guess my problem is all of the media seeking to make a buck off of everyone's sorry. How much sad music can we play behind Matt Lauer? How many movies, shows, documentaries, and interest stories can we put on the tube to exploit people's sorrows? How many times can we re-live the grueling video and pictures of the crashes? How many more times do I have to look at those photo shopped satan faces in the smoke? My heart is with those who hurt as a result of 9/11. My prayers are with soldiers all over the world and their families. My time will be better spent staying away from the reminder that our love and compassion for a broken nation has gone beyond tribute to over-kill and exploitation. Have a nice day.
