Everybody who has posted to this forum today was affected by 9/11. I was in lower Manhattan that morning, and I was a Ground Zero this afternoon. This tragedy is something we will continue to carry as long as our memories hold.
In the aftermath of 9/11, I couldn't turn on the TV for fear of being taken back to the horrors of that morning. "Survivor" was the only TV show that felt safe to watch. And when the rest of the pop culture vultures were declaring the end of irony and the death of pop culture, Sucks was a place where it was possible to experience a bit of the pre-9/11 snark. It helped to open the possibility that we might be able to find a new normal.
Now, people seem to have forgotten a lot of the horror. People who weren't personally affected seem to have an easy time making it through this day. Thank you for continuing to provide a forum for those of us who are still in the process of healing.
