It's not the coolest tragedy, it's so lame in comparaison to the fallout that happened because of it on all aspect; economical, humanitarian, social, etc…
The war that erupted in response to this TOTALLY not premeditated government ploy equal those that died in 9/11 hundreds of times, countless women and children, and entire country and region buried to the ground. But what do I know

I think it's because it signified a shift in the Western world regarding safety and future perspectives. What happens close to home is always going to have a larger impact than elsewhere, especially if it happens on soil that's supposed to be safe. I'm European btw not American. When I was in school they made us watch docus about this every year on 9/11.

I remember my teacher saying "Does anyone know who Mr. Bush is?" Nearly everyone said no. He said "Okay, does anyone know what the president of the united states is?" Somehow more people said no. He then told us about 9/11 and I never heard about it again for a few years. I'm amazed we can now vote, fucking rural retards

I'm European as well but 9/11 was only talked about in passing, most of people need a minute to figure out what I'm talking about when I mention it

Fucking zoomers. This was a major horrible event that changed the whole course of the world. Don't use it for edgy points.

Were you not online during the 00s? People who actually lived through that time made 9/11 jokes constantly. Yeah it's edgy, but it's nothing unique to zoomers.

Factoring in the USAs reaction to the event yes it did

It's worse when you know these people weren't even born when it happened so they really have no clue.

The late 90's were looking up, it was a new millenium, it was all about hope, then it happened and everything was shitty war again.

That's kind of an asinine way of determining significance.
