anniversaries, in general

Today is the 31st anniversary of the Attica prison rebellion. Tomorrow night, or rather early Sunday morning, is the 32nd anniversary of Jackson State (never heard of it? a similar thing happened 11 days earlier at Kent State, only Jackson State didn't get any press because it's a black college).

The point? Well, apart from the conclusion that I'm glad this isn't the 1970s, the point is that every day is an anniversary of something horrible, and ultimately we need to get past that in order to live.
