We will eventually forget

9/11 was a terrible day, but it is not going to always be on our minds. Most Americans alive today have no memory of when the Japanese bombed pearl Harbor and although we do commemorate the day it is not the same as before. The same thing will eventually happen with 9/11. Especially as the widows, widowers, children and parents of those who died age. Eventually we'll just have plaques and memorials. But they won't mean the same thing and eventually 9/11 will just be an event from the past to most people. Don't misunderstand me I know that for now people need to grieve and have closure. I am just saying that in 20 to 40 years from now it will just be another day.
