Now that the bandwagon patriots have put away their American flags, we can get on with life.
I can understand those who lost a loved one in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 when they say that their lives have changed due to the terrorist attack... the loss of someone close to you always changes your life. But, I think I speak for the rest of us when I say that for Americans as a whole, life hasn't changed at all.
As typical Americans, we can now get back to our daily routine of waking up, going to work/school, complain about how everything sucks, come home, complain some more, and go to sleep. September 11th hasn't broken this daily cycle.
For those who think that September 11th will become a national holiday, oy vey! The Japanese attack on Peal Harbor wasn't made into a national holiday. Before 2001, it was the bloodiest attack on American people.
December 7th is a day of mourning for those who lost someone, a day of rememberance for those who actually remember, and a day of irregularity for everyone else.
Why should September 11th be any different?
