Throughout our young history, Americans have been admonished to “Remember the Alamo,” “Remember the Maine” and “Remember Pearl Harbor.” These remembrances — and others — were for the purpose of motivating the public to fight on until an enemy was vanquished. When victory was assured, the memory faded into history.
Now, as we approach the sixth anniversary of September 11, 2001, there are suggestions we should begin to forget the worst terrorist incident in America’s history. Recently, a Page One story in the New York Times suggested it is becoming too much of a burden to remember the attack, that nothing new can be said about it and that, perhaps, September 11 “fatigue” may be setting in.
