Angry New Yorker

Tuesday, September 11, 2007
When I was a kid the big question in NYC was, "where were you during the blackout of '77?" In the 21st century the generational question now is, "where were you on 9/11?"

I'm sure each of us remembers vividly where we were that morning, though, as to be fully expected, some in America have either unconsciously forgotten or decided consciously to forget. Time has a powerful way of healing all wounds and wounding all heels. And every disaster that in its time "changed everything" eventually faded, regardless of those who'd prefer they didn't. Memories were designed to fade, and it's probably better they do, else much of life would be unbearable. Who today even knows about, let alone actually commemorates or remembers, the General Slocum disaster in NYC?
