Some interesting wired comments:

A European friend of mine said something interesting about America and memorials — ‘If Europeans built memorials like the US does, on every location everywhere something bad had happened, there would be no room left for anything else’.

I don’t think she meant don’t remember, or ignore the significance, but that the US almost seems to obsess over things like this in a way that’s not necessarily constructive.

We should leave the wreckage of fatal car accidents, permanently, on the side of our highways as well – because cleaning up the mess, and repaving the scorched holes in the pavement is equivalent to erasing the victims from history.
