Seriously, do we need to be reminded anymore. Can't we just use our own untainted memories of that day instead of having propaganda distort them?

I provided the links. Whether you click on them or not is entirely up to you. I found them interesting so I shared them with the others here, as I would with any piece of news, a joke, an interesting website, etc. If you don't want to read them, then don't click.

I think although it is good that there are rememberence sites and it is still being remembered, i think that on the actual anniversary, with the event still being so close, we should just reflect in our own way.s

thats not so weird, i bet a lot of people have some morbid curiosity about it. not to sound like an insensitive dick or anything, but i was fairly excited last night that something was going to happen.

omg that was horrible! fucking showing the passengers on the flight, which is all fine, but followed by an image of the plane feet away from slamming into the building along with a almost laughable image of a woman surprised by what has happened. And then again, showing the people on one of the flights followed by a picture an explosion? [sarcastic]Oh, and what lovely use of pictures of people falling to their deaths from the top of the towers.[/sarcastic] And this kinda happened a number of times more.

This seemed more like a sick joke then a remembrance and dedication to and for those who died. Actually, it seemes like it was made by someone who had no flash experience and just slapped a buncha images together, added a Enya song, and BAM! had a popular 911 flash animation.

The script:
1) Here's the people
2) and here is them about to die.
3) here are some more people
4) here is them after being blown up
5) here are some other people dieing. make sure you remember them. don't forget.
6) oh, here are some people jumping to their death.

*THE END*



[edit] OMG! did you see that 'message to the terrorists' at the end of the movie?! looked like an elementary school student wrote it. It was basically nothing more then "I’m rubber, your glue, whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you"

-------------------

ok... sorry... it's just that that was just soooo bad! lol

To me, it was very moving, an excellent tribute, and quite fitting on this occasion. I think you somehow missed the message, which was the important thing. And, I find nothing funny about it.....
