On the morning of September 12th 2001, we woke up to a changed world.
Five years later, it’s another crisp, clear September sky. Miles from Ground Zero, we hear the tolling bell and the poignant tunes of pipe band. Adam Gopnik, of the New Yorker, once said, “In New York, we suffer from a Tragedy of the Uncommons.” On this day, as put by BuzzMachine, “we measure tragedy as media does: en masse. That is media’s narrative, media’s worldview.” But tragedy is personal. We would not care if it did not touch us. For those haunted with pain, we leave you with Milan Kundera’s words, “the struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.”
