I'm sick to death of 9/11!

Today is Thursday, the 11th of September, 2008 A.D. It's the day after Wednesday, the 10th of September, 2008 A.D. and the day before Friday, the 12th of September, 2008 A.D. This would be an unremarkable day except that seven years ago this morning 19 men bordered four planes, commandeered those plains, and plowed them into both towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the Pennsylvania countryside when the passengers were about to retake the fourth plane. Now, this day is called 9/11.
And I for one am sick of it. They say "we will never forget". I wish I could forget about it.
I want to shoot my TV set whenever a commercial for those commemorative souvenirs comes on. The day is shoved down my throat. I don't need (certainly not paid for with my money) some piece of metal reminding me.
It also angers me when I see people (namely the Republican party) using this horrific event to their advantage. It's an insult to the people who died and their families. They should be a shamed of themselves but they aren't as they keep doing it.
It's not to say I don't care about what happened. It has to be the most tragic human event to happen in my lifetime. However, I'm sick of its overexposure and how it has been misused.
