With tears and emotion, Americans mark Sep. 11


America mourns Sept 11 dead with somber ceremonies


"Children yearned for lost parents and grown men and women sobbed in raw grief on the brass bearing the names of nearly 3,000 dead as America commemorated the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
The name of every person killed in al Qaeda's hijacked plane attacks was read on Sunday in the nearly five-hour-long centerpiece of a heart-wrenching ceremony where the World Trade Center twin towers stood.
"I haven't stopped missing my Dad. He was awesome," said Peter Negron, a child when his father, Pete, was killed in one of the towers. "I wish my Dad had been there to teach me how to drive, ask a girl out on a date and see me graduate from high school and a hundred other things I can't even begin to name."
There were smaller ceremonies in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon, the other sites were 19 men from the Islamic militant group al Qaeda crashed hijacked airliners on the sunny Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001.
The attacks led U.S. forces to invade Afghanistan to topple the Taliban rulers who had harbored al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and Washington began a "war on terror" that ousted Iraq's Saddam Hussein and persists on several fronts to this day. (...)"

Meh, I know it was a day to mourn, but how much mourning do we need? Let's put it to rest! Time to move on! Stop dreading in the past and move ahead. It's like being depressed during a dead parents birthday instead of being happy for the time you had with them! What bothers me most is the people that feel they were so affected by what happened you would have thought they lost someone they loved in the attack!

I'm just glad nothing happened yesterday, after all the hype of a new attack.
