It'll always be news for many more years yet. Even if Anniversary number 8 and 9 is missed the medial will certainly enjoy filling their pages with 10 years on sort of stories.

Nothing against Americans, but your media and to a certain extent alot of your civilians really do tend to over dramatise things and dwell on the past so much obviously hoping for sympathy.

You would know better than us SB, obviously. We can't touch the 22 years of wisdom you've aquired.

Although, this will be the 403rd year where you all, "Remember, remember the fifth of November." You might want to check my math. I'm just a stupid American.

//By the way, you might want to go mention to your neighbors that they're carrying on like a bunch of whinning over-emotional Americans.

Whoa, i think you read into my post way to much. I wasn't dissing you at all, it all goes down to how the media presents everything. I see the news and the media here ridicules the Americans, i'm pretty sure it's the same all over the world about other countries.

I also meant to add that we are no better here. I fully acknowledge that, and i personally really hate it.

By the way, something you need to know about me. I'm the kinda guy that would rather not dwell too much on the past and would rather move on and try my utmost to accept a situation as it was.

So seeing stories from 7 years ago appearing on the news more or less repeating the same thing is in my opinion counter productive. The families and friends of those who died know when it was, they know what happened and they know on a more personal level the pain they have experienced. I'd be a happier person if the media were concentrating on what is being done to learn and evolve from the situation rather than dwelling on the past and letting the painful memory drag on for many many more years.

I'm sure if you look at your original post, you can see how I was confused about whom you were addressing in your comment.

Yeah, people are still all worked up over this, but we have a good excuse. Being one of the more influential and seemingly untouchable nations in the world has kind of gotten the citizens everywhere thinking that nothing like this could have ever happened and couldn't possibly happen again. I almost hate to say it, but us Americans kind of have a bit of an ego. I am somewhat outraged that so many thousands of people had to die just because of another person's own beef with our government, but at the same time we just need to deal with it and move on. It's been seven years, and the sun will rise tomorrow so lets just continue our daily existence.

And as a side note, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the bad news. I was in science class in my freshman year of high school, and the teacher would often go to this one website to use as a teaching aid for his class. He opened up his browser and MSN was his home page where we saw the big headline telling about the tragic accident of an airplane hitting one of the world trade center buildings. This one dude in my class was an airplane nerd and a licensed pilot (at the ripe old age of 14!) and right away he said that was no accident. He said airplanes don't just run into buildings without warning. Not long after we got word of the second, third, and fourth airplanes.

Some time ago (early 1900's) that was known as Yellow Journalism and was used to aid America to start the Spanish-American War. The power of media :roll: ... That is called exaggeration :lol:
