"Huh," I thought last weekend. "There's an awful lot of 9/11 stuff on TV this week. Why is that?"
I thought that. I've thought things like that before.
I am the problem. I can’t be the only one: I imagine someone in history forgot the Alamo, or the Maine, or Pearl Harbor. I’m know there was a day they decided Memorial Day would be a good day for a sale instead of memorializing.
I watched the 9/11 documentary to reassure myself that I did still know the pertinent details. That’s the documentary they showed on CBS six months after 9/11, the one with the French filmmaker brothers, one who filmed from inside a tower while it was collapsing, and the other who filmed from the outside. It’s remarkable.
