FWD:FWD: Tomorrow is 9-11 thousands of ppl lost loved ones...i hope to god i never lose u. Send to everyone you dont want to lose
from a 440 phone number

I'm always of a mixed mind when it comes to forwards like this. Like the one I got last year about that teenager who had died. On the one hand, a misspelled, mis-punctuated, three-sentence text message seems to undercut the seriousness of the September 11th attacks to an extent that's almost insulting. On the other hand, text messages are THE WAY in which kids communicate, and maybe it is a positive thing that they're using their medium of choice to commemorate such a significant event. Yes/No? Opinions?
