11 years since the fall of the WTC. RIP the ~3000 persons that tragically perished that day.
But also:
39 years since the heinous murder of Salvador Allende, President of Chile.
47 years since the day on which the 1965 Indo-Pak War started
93 years since the invasion of Honduras by US Marines
so on and so forth

Milan Kundera said it best in his "The Book of Laughter and Forgetting": The bloody massacre in Bangladesh quickly covered over the memory of the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia, the assassination of Allende drowned out the groans of Bangladesh, the war in the Sinai Desert made people forget Allende, the Cambodian massacre made people forget Sinai, and so on and so forth until ultimately everyone lets everything be forgotten.”
