I think it is true. Regardless of whether you were old enough when it happened, there's a fundamental decency and respect lacking in people's conduct and observance of this tragic moment in our history. This is evidenced by what I have observed on a number of occasions of people's conduct at Ground Zero.

I wasn't alive when Pearl Harbor happened. But I know I wouldn't go to the Pearl Harbor memorial laughing/joking and taking selfies of myself there. Takes a special idiot to have this kind of disrespect at someone's grave site, where someone died, where someone was killed.

In the case of Ground Zero, it's a place where people were murdered and it ended up being their final resting place.

To add to how society has changed for the worse, this is some evidence of the cock roaches that are mixed into our species:
