The Way It Is, Like It Or Not...
I would just like one 9/11 to pass where I’m not appalled at the utter incompetence in rebuilding the site. Just one. *sigh*
Yeah, this day depresses me. Not so much because of what happens, although that really does carry a lot of weight on its own, but more because we don’t have the stomach to put aside our petty bullshit, put the building up, finish the museum, stand next to it and say “Fuck you!” to the people who knocked it down.
Instead, 11 years later, we don’t have the towers, we don’t have their replacement, we don’t have the museum, and we pretty much have changed from urgency in building it to apathy about whether it gets built at all.
How about instead of saying “Never Forget” we change to “Get it done already!”
How about it, New York? Do you have the stomach for it?
