Never forget! These powerful two words will be highlighted, yelled, and displayed ubiquitously throughout the country as we remember Sept. 11. Never forget the terror that was inflicted on this country. Never forget the day America was changed forever. Never forget the day that America’s innocence was lost. Never forget!
One thing you won’t hear is “Get over it!” And yet, that is what black Americans have heard repeatedly and casually over and over in regard to our home-grown terrors . . . .
