11 September 2011

Uncommon Commentary #210

A decade after the terrorist acts of 11 September 2001, our land (as opposed to those individuals in this land who were actually affected by the events) does not, in my opinion, still need "healing"; what it needs is to grow up.  To pronounce the date of those occurrences to be the day when the world changed forever, simply because they happened here rather than in some country where a suicide attack is almost routine, is to have a parochial attitude and an exaggerated sense of our importance.
