When we think of 9/11 we think a lot of things most of it negative because in context if not in scope it is our version of Hiroshima and maybe it is for that very reason I thought this collection as being nostalgic. Not so much nostalgia as remember those good times but like remember when everything changed. In that vein it is nostalgic in the sense that we revisit the trauma to make sense of the occurrence and maybe also to rediscover our shared humanity. This is not the first time the US of A has suffered enemy attack on our soil (Recall Pearl Harbor) but it was unique in that it was an updated intelligent approach. If Pearl Harbor was an attempt to cripple our fleet with its weaponry 9/11 was a blow to the intellectual, financial, and symbolic capitol. In this it spoke to a new type of warfare.
