That being said, I definitely remember where I was when it happened, and it was extremely sad. It's odd comparing the mood of the nation immediately after that with the mood immediately after the most reason shuttle explosion...far, far different.
callous? maybe a little. and whether or not people agree with you, you probably won't have to slow down to let people jump on the bandwagon.
As for me, I was... oh, that's right... not alive. Sad nonetheless... and again with the Discovery (if i recall correctly) when that happened.
