I believe we should honour the people lost at 9/11 but not kitchify it for political purposes. (listened to the best radio show the other day.)

I guess in my opinion, there were other options for those who did not want to watch 9/11 rebroadcasts. But we are free to choose and remember how we want. I always want that memory fresh in my mind, so I watched the rebroadcasts. My wife becomes very disturbed by the rebroadcasts, so she sat in the other room and watched other things. I am not saying a person who watched is wrong, nor am I saying the person who didn't watch is wrong. We are in America and we need to be willing to celebrate the fact that we have the option to watch a rebroadcast or not watch it. To me it was amazing to see how sureal it was the first time I watched it compared to watching the rebroadcast. For example, after the first plane had hit and they were stating that it must have been a smaller private aircraft, I was looking at the hole in the building thinking how could we have thought a small plane would do that.

I did/do watch it. I think there is value in looking again without the shock, and remembering what has happened since that time with a better perspective.

Most adults have "done" something with those events in their minds and hearts. Some have done good things, most have done other. For those who were children when it happened, it may not hold as much personal growth value, but certainly in the future it will have historical value.

For those who were adults, we need to remember and learn.
