Never Forget? Annual 9/11 'Tribute in Light' Canceled Over Coronavirus Fears

It’s like some of the bad “forces” out there are deliberately using this pandemic in order to subvert our American way of life. Even if that isn’t their aim, the communist Chinese government needs to pay — in more ways than one — for their countless treacheries. Someone needs to be held responsible for this virus that has plagued American society since it first entered the U.S.

According to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum’s website, the “Tribute in Light” ceremony that has become tradition in lower Manhattan in remembrance of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 will not be held this year due to concerns over workers contracting the Chinese coronavirus.

The museum released a statement about the cancelation:

Tribute in Light, the world’s beloved twin beams of light, will not shine over lower Manhattan as part of this year’s 9/11 commemoration. This incredibly difficult decision was reached in consultation with our partners after concluding the health risks during the pandemic were far too great for the large crew required to produce the annual Tribute in Light. We hope to resume this iconic tribute for the 20th anniversary. In a spirit of unity and remembrance, the city will come together for a “Tribute in Lights” initiative to inspire the world and honor the promise to never forget.

So people can all come together to protest, riot and loot, but we can’t commemorate one of the darkest days in the history of this country?

One of the things Americans do, or at least used to do to a large degree, is remember those Americans who came before them, remember people that lost their lives needlessly in tragedy and come together to celebrate the country we all live in. It’s getting sad at this point.

What was it every American said once upon a time? Never forget? Whether intentional or not, making moves like the one above helps people keep a poor memory.

Here is video of the "Tribute in Light," as shown on the museum's YouTube channel:
