Remembering 9/11 the Wrong Way

Posted By on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 at 5:00 PM

There are all kinds of truly wonderful events happening to honor the upcoming 9/11 anniversary on Sunday. Stories that have been circling the internet for weeks have made me remember what it was like as a 14 year-old to watch the second plane fly into the second tower live on television.

The following is an attempt to fall in line with engaging in those feelings and falls so short it falls flat on its face.

via Regretsy:

One of the most awesome things about Etsy crafters is the way they leap on human suffering with a hot glue gun and a bag full of bottlecaps. I like to call it, “Tragicrafting.”

We’ve seen Amy Winehouse death crafts, a Liz Taylor pile on, some super fun hurricane swag, and perhaps most tastefully, a Casey Anthony payday! So is it any wonder that Nine-Elevenailia has been steadily creeping into The World’s Most Vibrant Handmade Suckhole?

A cynical person might suggest that this is just another crappy way to make a buck, but by now you know that I am not a cynical person. I’m a God damned Pollyanna, is what I am. And I will tell you right now that Tragicrafting™ is not about money; it’s about healing.

Yes, closure is just a click away. And it only takes Paypal.
