For the past year I can not begin to count the number of times I've heard the phrase "get over it" mentioned in casual conversations and the media when dealing with "our" history.
In the past few days with the anniversary of Sept 11th coming up, some of the same ones who are stauch defenders of leaving the past in the past are now banging the drum for 9-11. After all they conclude, it is part of our history and we should all remember what happened that fateful day.
Now maybe I'm missing something, but isn't slavery and the aftermath part of "our history", that should be remembered as well?
Is there a ststute of limitations as to when something is no longer revelant and should be erased from our history?
Got that off my chest, now back to work.
