Quiet Reflections and the Media

The journalists are starting to set up their video cameras in front of the WTC PATH Station to catch the 9th anniversary sentiments of passersby as 9/11 nears. No more private reflections anymore, I guess. Every moment must be captured.

I skimmed the Matawan Journal for remembrances of Pearl Harbor in Dec 1950, nine years after that horrible event, but not a word appeared in print. Maybe the local media left it to the national press to memorialize those who died that Sunday morn? Or maybe it still hurt too much?

I suppose there is no way to express such thoughts. Maybe that is what prompts xenophobic idiots to try to exclude Muslims from Burlington Coat Factory and to plan a bonfire in Florida?

Peace be with you.
