Lights Out: Jon Stewart’s first day back on The Daily Show after the events of September 11, 2001. Even if you’ve seen it before, it’s worth watching again.
Thank you, Jon.
sometimes I honestly forget it happened, because I was ten and I’ve never really lived consciously in a world without the loss of the trade center, without the wars this sparked, without the Islamic/Arabic hate this established in my country
and I forget what it was like for everyone who was around before and did have to adjust to the aftermath
I forget that this was reality changed
and if I’ve heard someone be more optimistic right after the attack, I’ve forgotten that, too, so I’m just gonna say Mr. Stewart takes the cake.
I was 16 and I remember when this aired and I was just sobbing and laughing and had no idea what my feelings were doing but I’m pretty sure I stood up and clapped by the end of it
