Just because people don't want to watch people burn-up or jump from 80 + stories, does not mean they have forgot.
I watched Discoveries 'Inside the Twin Towers'..... good movie, but all it did was left me hateing muslims..... Hell, I already did that.
Some people can't remember what happened yesterday......
The media won't let that happen either.....Sweep week has to be coming soon. Sad that they play that game....If you don't watch then you are Un-American.....Heir Goebbels would be proud.

While I have been doing some serious studying of the Qu'ran and the Muslim culture in general, everything I really need to know about Islam, I learned on September 11, 2001.
I still need to avoid watching specials on our being attacked for fear that I will leave 7-11s with no employees.

Some choose not to watch any coverage on it.And then again some will.I wish everyone will remember and have the fortitude to actually pause and reflect. Now people who could not be bothered because it gets in the way of their ignorant lives well.... I've got a problem with that.

I choose not to watch anything on the subject - does that mean i will forget - NEVER. I saw it live on television when it happened. I don't need to relive the horror night after night on television. My wife on the other hand watches everything. She was unaware of what was happening as she was working and had no access to the media until the end of the day.
I will go to a memorial service for all those that lost their lives 5 years ago as well as those fighting around the world for our freedom from terrorism - a war I'm afraid will never be won.

Do I remember the events of September 11, 2001 as they unfolded? You better believe I do. I was scared to death that we were in the beginning of WWIII, which of course turns out we are but with the battles taken away from our homeland.
At the time, my son and I lived about 20 miles from DC. My son was working a job in Virginia, just west of DC, and had to travel the DC beltway to get to work.
I was in the middle of PA farmland heading to a jobsite inspection, listening to NPR. After hearing the live conversation with the NPR guy talking to someone in the Pentagon about the two planes hitting the towers, and then having the Pentagon hit while that conversation was going on, I went into panic mode.
I called my son and told him to stay home. I told him to get a few weapons we had ready for whatever might happen, that I would be picking up additional ammunition. Fortunately, I have used that ammo only for target practice.
I for one am not able to handle too much input of the atrocities that occured on that day. Even more, we should never...ever...forget what happened on that day. We should never allow any faction to breed and grow to a force that is capable of doing what was done to us on that day.
Had we been more proactive in our dealings with the Muslim world prior to September 11, 2001, there is a good chance that thousands of American civilians would still be alive and the world would not be in the chaos of WWIII that it currently is.
More then likely I will be dead from old age before this conflict ends. We have just scratched the surface of what the Islamic world has plans for the rest of the world.
