Upon further reflection, "forget" was probably too strong. Conversely, having a story about a race horse as the primary effort wasn't nearly enough.
Having members of the Kings' family die in the terrorist attacks made it personal for many of us. A simple first screen with the AM patch and a very short statement of remembrance once a year IMO isn't too much to expect.
...but at some point people do try and continue on with life.
Normally, I would agree with you. Had they died as the result of an accident, it would have been tragic, but continuing on with life would have been the appropriate response. Instead, their deaths came as the result of an event that has radically changed all of our lives forever. IMO, that justifies the difference.
Luc also acknowledged Mark and Ace prior to the start of the rally.
While a remembrance thread is certainly appropriate on the anniversary of their deaths, slighting the Kings in the process was not when they in fact did take time to make note of the occasion in a couple of different ways.
Next time, let's keep it reverential and not use someone's death as a launch point to take a shot at the Kings organization, who has certainly treated Mark, Ace and their families with the utmost of respect over the years.
Keep Mark and Ace as well as everyone else who lost their lives that day in your thoughts and prayers. Onward and upward.
