#NeverForget what may be forgotten, including Tower 7, the 47-story building next to the Twin Towers that was hit by no airplane yet nonetheless collapsed at 5:21pm on September 11, 2001.
#NeverForget that 9/11 led to the deaths of tens of thousands of U.S. civilians and soldiers, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi’s and Afghani’s, $2 trillion taken from ordinary Americans via taxes and given to the U.S. defense industries and led to record profits for their investors, and the Patriot Acts that secretly stole American freedoms.
#NeverForget that before 9/11, media news outlets rarely used red breaking news banners, but now they seem to use them everyday for everything, no matter if the news is actually critically important or not, perpetuating an endless feeling of anxiety, fear, and a perpetual addiction and hunger for destructive content.
Last but not least, let us #NeverForget all those that passed and sacrificed for us, and to thank those selfless United flight 93 passengers and New Yorkers who are the real heroes of 9/11 like FDNY, NYPD, and everyone involved in the clean-up, and all the heath-care workers and first responders. Let us #NeverForget that they are the best representation of all of us.
