I've heard it said, the further away we get from 9/11, the closer we get to 9/10.

But as for me and mine, we won't forget. Nor forgive. You. Can't. Forgive. Evil.

I forgave them. I won't forget what they did. I still remember exactly where I was when someone came into our classroom and we turned on the TV. I can forgive them because I know they will face the consequences of their actions. If not in this life, then when they appear before God. But I won't forget, because I want to make damned sure it doesn't happen again.

I have not forgotten. I just couldn't find the words yesterday to write a post worth posting on it. You always know what to say. Great job.

If you don't forgive, their evil continues to infect our lives. Don't give them that power.
Instead, forgive them for thinking that what they did could destroy a nation.
And remember that those who involuntarily gave their lives that day serve as our angel guides to peace. Because if we don't work toward peace, we are destined to repeat history.

We can forgive without forgetting. A slight, a slap.. even something more serious.

9/11 is not forgivable. Not ever.

Oh yes, we will never forget, and never forgive. Thank you Bou for such an eloquent post.

This is kind of related: After 9/11, at least where I live, there were many many American flags flying. Before 9/11 I would tell people who were looking for my house to look for the flag in front, as I was the only one on my street flying it. After 9/11, just about everyone had one. Now, they're all gone. Sad.

I am going to be in disagreement with some of your readers. You have to forget their atrocities when you forgive them. You CANNOT have one without the other. As for me, may they burn in hell.
