Ah yes, the real victims.

It's part of the propaganda campaign to create knee jerk Pavlovian response to the crime(s) that day. Few want to delve into what actually happened that day. And when they do they get censored or their additional information is 'pulled' from controlled media.

It covered up the massive $2.3 trillion theft of unaccounted military spending which the "airplane/missile" destroyed the day after Donald Rumsfeld mentioned it. And gave the continued pretext to ramp up $pending in war economy.

Perish the thought the American public learn what may have happened that day....
Do you remember this Art installation at the WTC?

It's hard to believe that it is 18 years since 9/11 and most the children (excluding a few seniors) in school weren't even born yet when this happened. So definitely something that should be in the NYC school curriculum.

Oh, I definitely agree. I just think that they won't get the moment of silence thing.

But, my own kid is 28 now and I don't live in New York anyway, so I have no dog in this fight.

If 9/11 never happened in 01' and happens now. I think it would be a lot more traumatic. Back in 01' NYers were a lot tougher and not as hypersensitive as people are today. The good thing is that Trump is President, he wouldn't let the Saudis run free from responsibility as Bush did.

Cuomo is trying to make the next generation not forget but they're going to forget anyways just like everyone does for everything in history.

Life goes on

I was only 4 then, so there's not much I can remember beyond the activities that occurred in my daycare.

But I must say, it's quite unnerving to see that time period, not far removed from today, covered as a history lesson. Between the emergency vehicle wreckage and the clothing store, that 9/11 Museum is literally "modern" ancient ruins.

Not to mention smartphones, which results in LOTS more and HIGHER quality footage, final calls to friends, family, 911, etc. So much content for Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, LiveLeak, WorldStar, etc it would be insane.

Poor kids today, every time they turn around this or that politician or SJW is shoving something down school's throats to teach "history" or whatever of so they "won't forget".

Used to be just American history was enough. Then they added WWII/Holocaust, slavery/African American "experience", LGBT, and perhaps others depending upon local government. If the de Vos woman gets her way religion will be next thing shoved down school kids throats.

Lots of horrible events happened in NY history (state and or city) that no one talks about much today. Draft Riots (where Irish and other whites beat up, lynched, killed, looted) against blacks is one that comes to mind.

Maybe they thought it would be downright embarrassing if someone visiting from out of town asked a question (ala interviewer on the street tryng to prove some point) and the kid said, "huh?" I know that a lot of families that experienced the devastation will pass along the stories to their kids and so forth, but to what extent thereafter, who knows.

The license plates that read, "we will never forget" . I can just imagine some years down the road, there will be some interviewer trying to prove that x-amount of people have forgotten.
