Watching the Mets/Yankees game and the obligatory discussion about 9/11 and the almost 3000 US civilians killed on that day and “Never Forget.” Well how the hell can anyone forget? But why is this a topic for discussion during a baseball game, sports should be a diversion from the real world. About 7000 US soldiers died in post 9/11 US operations, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians (think about that, hundreds of thousands of innocent people, with families, people just like you and me), in a war based on lies. When will we have a Never Forget day to talk about that?
ETA - I feel I must add that this is in no way meant to be disrespectable to those who lost husbands or wives or friends or family on that day
