How could we forget the day that was a nightmare for our family and hundereds of others. my family doesn't need reminding my daughter hides from news and media on this day and the days surrounding it because it was the most traumatic day of her life. She has lasting anxiety from a day in september when she was just 12.

I will be saying a silent prayer for those who were lost that day, as well as those they left behind. But I won't be watching any TV programs about it. I won't even turn on the TV today. I was a reporter when that happened, and I was immersed in that tragedy 24 hours a day for nearly a week straight. It was traumatizing. I don't want to relive it, and I don't think it's healthy for people to watch images from that day every year. Never forget, but allow yourself to heal. We can't do that if we relive the tragedy in vivid images every year.

I agree it is like morbid curiosity on the part of those uneffected personally.    We have to shut down as well.

those people don't need to open this post.  Some of us will choose to open it.   Don't like a post, don't open it.

Just watched a movie related to it, and that sparked a review of history with my kids, which was a good thing.

I won't.
