I’ll remember 9/11 the same way I remember the Gulf of Tonkin or “Remember the Maine!”, simply as reasons the United States used to go to war.
I wonder how the hundreds of thousands we killed in Iraq would remember 9/11. I wonder how the hundreds of thousands we killed in Afghanistan would remember 9/11. I wonder how the victims of drone strikes and those illegally detained and those held in secret prisons in our name would remember 9/11.
How do I remember 9/11? I remember it as a day in which America took the wrong path and just said “Fuck it. Let’s kill some brown people.” You know… just another day.
