Never Forget. Never Surrender

Today marks the 13th anniversary of that dark day, when Islamic jihadis killed 2,996 of our friends, neighbors, and loved ones. Two years ago, the USA Today is wondered if 9/11 is becoming just another day, similar to Pearl Harbor Day. Based on the tiny coverage by major news outlets, which feature tiny stories on their front pages, if at all, it just might be. NY Times, the “paper of record”? Nothing. The Washington Post? Nothing. CBS has an article wondering if we’re any safer. NBC? Nothing. ABC has a brief story about changes to the commemoration. Good for them. LA Times? They actually do a good job, with 8 articles for a look back, including 9/11 in pictures. CNN has a few tiny graphics. Good for the Daily Kos, about the only liberal blog that mentions 9/11 that I’ve run across.

People wonder why we should Remember the day in an overt fashion, unlike, say, Pearl Harbor day. Well, we defeated the Japanese within a few years. It was a different type of war. 9/11 was when we were attacked on our continent by people who will not stop anytime soon, an enemy that is not centralized by a nation, who spread according to their religious tenets.
