They’re Still Missing

NYT - 9-12-2012

They did it again.

For the SECOND YEAR IN A ROW.

I speak, of course, about The New York Times and the absolute lack of coverage that they give on their front page to the 12th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

It is appalling that there is no mention of this today.

It is doubly appalling that this is the second year that the New York Times saw fit to slap the families of those who were lost on 9/11 with their indifference to that loss, one that still resonates 12 years later.

We all lost something that fateful day in September.

I wrote about this issue last year in this post, you’re missing

You can make the argument that this year, Syria is the big story.

Which is even more reason, in my mind, to keep 9/11 front and center in our minds.

Today, especially, but always.

“They took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it’s too disturbing for you and me
It’ll just breed anger that’s what the experts say
If it was up to me I’d show it everyday….
….Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell….
….Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Yeah, some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
All the loved ones that we lost and those left to carry on….
…Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten?”
