Do we perhaps go TOO far ??

Does 'commemorating' a specific event
have the same connotation as 'memorializing' said event?
Do people go too far with regard to sensationalizing certain kinds of TRAGIC occurrences ?
Painful , Horrible CALAMITIES....
indelibly etched into their souls,,,,
 regardless of POMP or CIRCUMSTANCE....
When does DRAMA warrant its own 'sacred verarcity' ?
And when is ENOUGH ENOUGH ?
Is there a 'statute of limitations' on pain ?
Do we WANT to REMEMBER the details ?
Does remembering make it BETTER ?
Does remembering PRECLUDE it from RE OCCURRING ?
Should we build MONUMENTS as a reminder of the TRAGEDY  ?
or,,,
Are TWO, STOIC  BEAMS OF LIGHT so much more POIGNANT and POWERFUL ?
Of course, the people who perished should be
MEMORIALIZED and CELEBRATED and MOURNED....
But...
Should the EVENT be treated in the same PROFOUND manner ?
Do people simply go TOO FAR ?
