During the week of September 11, certain news outlets concentrate on the run-up to the terrorist attacks and then chronicle the events that unfolded on that Tuesday morning and the many anxious days (and weeks) that followed. Still, other organizations choose to ignore that evil incident and reference it as a footnote to other breaking news of the current day. 9/11 is mentioned, but it is just a past tragedy — a horrible day of destruction that occurred in the past. Never mind that the past is only 17 years old, and still very much in the present for many Americans and other citizens of the world.
