1. Everyone will know about it as media will continually harp on it, while other significant things are barely mentioned. Indeed, if something that otherwise would garner attention happens in the wake of such an event, it will largely be ignored. Note that this does not mean all things that could be labeled terrorism will get this attention or even be labeled as such.

Yesterday, I saw police in armor with automatic weapons on both legs of my commute. They were not near any military installation, government building, or anything like that. They were pacing aggressively, as if a serious threat could pop up at any moment (presumably not the bombers we’re warned about on the Metro every day with a recording by Janet Napolitano).
I’m OK with never forgetting.
But how about ending being so fearful.
