It is shocking to me now, nine years later, the amount of hate that exists in this world. And to all the pictures and jokes about 9/11, are still in bad taste in my opinion. This was a tragedy, and I cannot find any humor in this whatsoever. Also, to these people saying we should just “get over it already”, tell that to all those people listed above. This isn’t something you can just get over. This is something we will never forget.

What hit home: 

Number of survivors rescued from Ground Zero: 11”

Never forget how very blessed and fortunate you are to be here right now, staring at your computer screen for hours on end. I myself feel like logging off right about now and doing something that the world could possibly be proud of. Or at the very least pray. 9/11.
