oh, well said

vyoma has declared this September 11 International Enough Day.

This is, as I hope is obvious, not meant to belittle anyone's mourning. It's a reaction instead to the jingoism and "we in the US are unlike anyone else in the world" flavor to much of the discussion of the tragedy.

I probably won't fly a flag.

I will certainly burn a candle.

Knowing the way my life has been going lately, I'll probably completely forget just WHAT day it happens to be.

Thanks for that link, Claudia. It's nice to know other people out there think similarly to me, but not being American, it's often hard to voice my opinions without getting misunderstood.

Yep, I am so with you on that one. I take it as a personal point of pride that, because we never flew a flag before 9/11 we didn't feel we had to jump on the bandwagon and fly one after 9/11 just because everyone else was doing it.
