Sometimes Twitter provides a reality check:
9/11 is now as long ago as the fall of the Berlin Wall was on 9/11.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. If you want to be precise, it is actually now longer since the September 11, 2001 attacks than the attacks were to the fall of the Berlin Wall on Nov. 9, 1989. There were 4,324 days between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the September 11 attacks. There have been 4,438 days since the attacks.
