Yesterday was my mom's birthday. I've always felt bad for her having her birthday on 9/11 ever since, well, 9/11/01. It's a really crappy day to have a birthday. She cries a lot, so every year on her birthday, she cries all morning (even though we don't personally know anyone that died). But when you think about it, the whole thing is overrated. It's fucking ridiculous. I heard on the news a few months ago that all of the victims families are getting about $1,000,000. They're set for life. I, on the other hand, get nothing. Sure, a lot of people died and it was sad and all, but it's been 9 years - I think people need to grow up. But I know for a fact that that definitely won't happen until after next year, the 10th anniversary.
