Only in America… and only in a Walmart.
A coordinated terrorist attack saw three hijacked planes flown into prominent American buildings, murdering 2,996 people and leaving countless others injured.
The rest of the world watched on the television as the tragic events of that day unfolded and its causal effects are still felt today every time we go to an airport, cross a country border or read the daily headlines.
Every individual affected by the events of that day, 15 years ago has found their own way to cope and move on with life.
To “Never Forget” can be honoured in several ways admirably but perhaps a Florida Walmart missed the memo.
The store had a 9/11 display made out of boxes of pop cans that portrayed the twin towers within a flag of the United States and a sign hanging above reading: “We Will Never Forget,” sponsored by Coca-Cola.
They say it’s the thought that counts… but this time, Walmart and Coca-Cola’s thought sucked!
