A Somber Anniversary on 9-11

I'm at a loss as to what I could possibly say on this anniversary of one of our nation's dark moments.  I'm sure there will be plenty of "remember when" moments over this.

I have a few more questions to add to the many: Where is the outrage when December 7th rolls around?  Is there less outrage because the sneak attack was directed, mostly, toward military targets?  Is there less outrage because a lack of current memory has dimmed the vile spirit of the attack?  Do our citizens not care because most media outlets don't tell them to?  

On this anniversary of the largest attack on our nation's homeland since 1941, I haven't lost my anger over the one that happened before my birth.   I doubt that I'll lose my anger over the newer attack, despite what hollyweird and news outlets tell me to do.

This is not an occasion for celebration, but it is an important day.  Where are those flags that were flying on almost every house nine years ago?  Put 'em back up!
