Isn't that what writers do? They take a story that has emotional power and tell it. True stories of tragedy set themselves up for this. I can fully appreciate a New Yorkers feeling that it's too soon and too real to re-experience the topic, but for many writers it's been a long time coming. This particular tale intrigues me because it isn't about the events themselves, but about how those events reverberated to other parts of our world. It's easy to be cynical and look at the commercialization, but sometimes it actually starts with a story and an emotion that needs to be told.
