You have a point HS.

But it could take much longer and perhaps still reman to some genrations down the line- since {until/if the cuture/USA dominance changes} NYC is "the Capitol of the World" certainly one of the Capitols of The World, thus it's buildings and memorial will be more in the general population's minds & sight than way off in the Pacific Blue {no offense hope to visit some dayy} Hawaii.

a true new yorker speaking

The difference between the two should not be the "locations" - because in both instances, many Americans were killed.

9/11 was an attack on civilians.....Pearl Harbor was an attack on military - and THERE is the difference.

I live 50 miles from Shanksville were the plane went down in Pennsylvania. I have been there before, and to pay my respects for the innocent people who lost their lives. There is going to be a service starting at the exact same time the plane when down. I would really like to go, but it is my Saturday to work.

I'm sure New Yorkers would not forget, at least not for a long time. Those who were old enough to remember the attacks would not, but those born afterwards would because they never experienced the shock, horror and grief of that day. It waters down over a period of generations.

But I'll never forget. I will always be haunted by this day.

Who do you mean by using the pronoun "we" ? I mean, I personally will never forget such an event. We have to live with that nightmare even if we don't think of it every day. Maybe it's our duty to avoid such events to be faded into history books. Our future children will have to be aware of the past atrocities.

I agree here.

I can still see this woman from one of the photographs. I've called her Lorraine. She haunts me. She's in the mosaic somewhere.
May she and the others be at peace.
May those who lived through it find comfort.
May the world never see another Spetember 11.

9/11 was like a nightmare but it didn't change the world. There was terrorism before - what was new? It was in the US and there were more dead people. But the reasons and the need to fight terrorism are still the same.
