What Happened on 9/11 Again?

Thursday, June 16, 2005

Neil Cavuto reminds us what we're supposed to be memorializing:

The whole issue of what belongs in the Sept. 11 memorial at New York's "ground zero" forgets this basic fact: It's a Sept. 11 memorial.

It's not an American slavery memorial or "what we've done wrong in the world" memorial. It's meant to remember people killed on Sept. 11, period — end of story.

There are plenty of museums dedicated to other issues. Let this one focus on "this" issue: nearly 3,000 innocent people slaughtered. Doing anything else disgraces their memory and makes lunacy of their loss.

It would be like asking the Jews to build a museum dedicated to better understanding the Nazis — why they hated them and why they ended up gassing them by the millions.

Stop it and wake the hell up.

You may want to have tea with Charles Manson and understand why Chuck thinks the way he does. But I don't. Sometimes evil is evil and a monster is a monster.
And how. This effort to PC-inize the Sept 11 memorial is similar to the plan to make one of the firefighters from the famous photograph in the statue black. For once let's not bring political correctness into something. The memorial to 9/11 should be about that and nothing more.
