A thought on respect.

Can you imagine if September 11 was a shopping day? A day for sales? A 4-day weekend?

Why can’t the general American Memorial Day get even 1% of the respect we give to the September 11 memorial? Yes, the latter is a specific event. Yes, it was only ten years ago, freshly tattooed to our brains.

I guess I just would have thought that by now – ten years and two+ wars later – we would have tried to reform the American Memorial Day experience just a little bit.

    I agree. Memorial day doesn’t mean anything to our generation – but I bet to those who fought in Vietnam or Korea, or WWII, memorial day means remembering those they lost. Which, I believe is what September 11th is really all about.
