College Students Unaware Of 9/11, But Can Name Celebrities Whose Nude Photos Were Hacked
We asked the following questions to randomly selected students around the GWU campus:(Hat Tip: Weasel Zippers)
The results are stunning:
- Next week marks the anniversary of a major national event do you know what that is?
- Do you know what ISIS is?
- Did you know that ISIS is responsible for the beheading of two American journalists? If so, could you name one?
- Are you aware of the celebrity "nude photo" hacking scandal? If so, could you name any of the celebrities involved?
The reason for conducting this video project was to bring awareness to our 9/11: Never Forget Project which is designed to remember those murdered at the hands of radical Islamists more than a decade ago. (Source)

Unfortunately, concrete and steel doesn't last forever, memories fade as the old pass and new generations take their place.
Who will be around to remember in 50 or 75 years from now, oh sure, some will remember, but will they still come to the monuments and memorials? Will they still exist?
Yes it hurts, hurts many, but over time, all that remains are the memories of that day.
When property values go higher, need for more living space as population rise, these memorials may be the first to go.
