I've got to tell you, seeing this today peeves me. And here's why.
There's another event in our not too distant past for which a group says, "Never forget." The problem? It seems like today, in this country, a lot of people have forgotten.
I read this blog, YesbutNobutYes the other day, specifically, "Heil Hitler?!?" What the Hell Is Happening In Our Country and I grew sick. The "right's" use of associating our current administration with Hitler and the Nazis is outrageous, sickening and demeans "Never Forget" creating a generic presence representing anyone that happens to disagree with your opinion.
And let's face it, besides the events of eight years ago, and the events that started some 70 years ago, there are a hell of a lot of things in human history that we should "Never Forget." So many, I'd wager, that we've forgotten a huge chunk of them.
So, instead of "Never Forget", how about let's remember one thing, to treat everyone, everywhere with kindness, courtesy and compassion. Maybe then we'll finally have nothing we have to "Never Forget."
