Do I Need to Remember what I Haven't Forgotten?

Jeff Harrell puts into words something that's been lurking in the attic of my brain, but just I couldn't put my finger on it:

[W]ith all due respect, you can blow your memorials and your big-screen movies and your documentaries out your ass. Remembering 9/11 isn’t the problem.

I started watching "The Path to 9/11" last night, but then stopped. It's TiVoed in case I change my mind at some point, but I don't really need a movie to reenact the events. Who does, at this point? If someone is living so outside of the events of the world, that they need a refresher course on this stuff- well, I Just don't know what to say about that.
