It must be hard for the victims of 9/11 to gain any kind of peace when the media and everybody are ramming it down their throats.

I might be in the minority but I think TV and retail stores are still milking 9/11 for any money that they can make off it. It makes me mad to go into a place like Wal-Mart or somewhere like that where they have millions of T-shirts on racks that say "9/11 we'll never forget" and the shirt is made in bangladesh or some other p.o.s. country a million miles away and none of the money even goes to a charity or anything like that for victims of 9/11.

I remember also when Snyder put out the 9/11 Commemorative Redskins Hat that had a little flag on the side of it and it was like 40 bucks or something. I thought it was deplorable that he would try to make a buck off all those lost lives.

I agree with patriotism, believe me, but it has its place. And I dont think on the anniversary of the nation's worst tragedy everybody should be all rah rah rah with the red white and blue. People should wear black, because it is a time of mourning, IMO.
Nail head. Meet Hammer.

110% agree. <-----kinda like those 60/50 odds on the giants/redskins.

Yup. Very well said.

As to the red, white and blue, my thought is that it should be red, white and blue with a stripe of black - a reminder of the attack on us as a country, as a symbol of the unifying effect it had us as a country and as a remembrance & mourning for those who were targeted & died for no other reason than they were Americans.

I also agree with you on your points. Having to see those attacks again and again are horrific, and whenever we are a month or so away from 9/11 you will see the shows on CNN, AnE, History Channel, Discovery, and so on that chronicle the day from every different perspective. We will never forget, and we don't need a reminder every year. This one is different as it is the 10 year anniversary.

It's only 10 years from the event, but in 10 more years, 15 more years, 20 more years etc. I suspect the shows will be as much to educate those who never lived through it, than remind those of us who did

Re: NFL says players can wear red, white and blue on 9/11

I don't agree with sweeping the event under the rug like it never happened. This past week I've seen some fascinating programs about 9/11... I say keep them coming.

Unfortunately the commercial aspect comes with the territory. But it's more important that we keep a clear picture in our minds of what happened, and learn as much as we can about that day and those involved so we can remember and honor those that lost their lives that day. If someone wants to buy a t-shirt or hat so they can honor that day, so be it.

I wasn't referring to SS, but more the argument going back and forth.

I wouldn't be surprised if all or a percent of sales goes towards 911 victims.

Ah okay. I just assumed you were referring to SS since that was where the thread was headed.

Agree 100%

Pearl Harbor happened in 1941, but we still commemorate it as a day that the unthinkable became thinkable. That will be true for 9/11 as well.
