TO THE EDITOR:
When I grabbed a copy of The Daily Tar Heel on Friday, I was positive I would see a tribute to 9/11 as the feature story.
Instead, Michael Jordan covered the front page, leaving only a small section for an article about the anniversary of that terrible day. Don’t get me wrong, I love Michael Jordan and the fame he brought to the University.
But where is the DTH’s patriotism? Instead of a reflection, the only article the DTH ran about 9/11 claimed that most people have moved on.
Almost 3,000 Americans were murdered, the country was brought to a standstill for several days and now we are engaged in a war in Afghanistan to bring justice to the organization behind those hijackings.
Doesn’t that deserve to be the feature article on at least one day of the year?
There is a blurred line between “moving on” and forgetting the scope of the past. It was a disservice to everyone affected by the 9/11 events to not pay more tribute to that fateful day in history.
