Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
So, it's been two years since 9/11. It seems in light of recent conflicts and political rumblings in the Middle East, the world seems to be moving on slowly but steadily. With the exception of the media, who still seem to be deeming it necessary to bombard us with footage of the planes slamming into the towers, the towers exploding and eventually crumbling into the ground.

Could they give it a rest? If they show this footage enough, then we will risk becoming desensitized to it. And that can't happen.

That said.....I'm thinking of American citizens on this day and my prayers are with all that lost loved ones.

Current Mood: contemplative contemplative

Risk becoming desensitized?


I think I was probably desensitized to it by the end of 2001. And I don't watch much TV. The media here are a bunch of flaming morons.

I don't know -- I rather feel it would be nice if people were desensitised to it. Otherwise they'll never let it go, and we'll keep getting people like that person who wanted Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers renamed because it was 'highly offensive'.

Forgive me, my opinions on the entire matter are fairly dim.

Mike Moore (I think that's his name), the one who did "Bowling for Columbine" wrote a book called Stupid White Men or something like that. I saw it in Book World just the other day and read the intro to it. His book was due for release 12/9/01 but wasn't out of respect to the American citizens. However a few months later when he said, "hey, I think it'd be alright to release it now" the publishers said NO! because it was to offensive and needed to be rewritten. The Kill Whitey chapter was actually a letter for mr Bush. Ha! The country that prides themselves on Freedom of speech.

My sympathy to all Americans though. I'm greatly sorry it happened.
