Don't even think about smiling

This begins our series of "Is It Me ... Or What?"

This weekend I went to the 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center. What is it about people who pose in front of memorial monuments and smile to have their picture taken? Is there some kind of disconnect with the human condition here? It's like wishing someone a "Happy" Memorial Day or "Happy" Yom Kippur.

Three-thousand people died in the terrorist attacks in our country on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 Memorial is dedicated to commemorating each individual who died in the terror.

Smiling for a photo in front of the 9/11 Memorial. Not. Appropriate.
