    Eh, no. You can't compare thousands of deaths that launch a decade long war to the burning of a church. It sucks, but it isn't similar.

    Meant it, too. I didn't try to take it back then, and I'm not trying to take it back now. It's not an unreasonable thing. It doesn't diminish the importance or devastation of 9/11 at all to say that some people, myself included, are as emotionally disturbed by the loss of a significant, unique, and important historic site almost as much as they were on 9/11, a significant regional event.

    You don't agree. That's fine. It didn't happen to you, or a thing that you cared about. If the Rwandan Genocide had happened in your back yard, as 9/11 did, you would give the same emotional weight to that event too. But it didn't, and I don't know your mind, but I would wager you don't. You, like the rest of the world outside that region, said "Oh, how terrible that is", and went right back to eating your dinner. And of course I don't mean you specifically, as we were mostly too young to understand that event, but you as in the general populace.

    Fun. You're a person that never lifted a finger up to do anything about this.

    On the contrary, I've dedicated the better part of my life to the preservation of knowledge and historical sites. I wasn't involved at all in the restoration project that was going on at Notre Dame, no, for a number of reasons including that I'm not in academia anymore and projects like that are the Anthropological equivalent of being accepted into the Astronaut training program at NASA.

    In the past two years alone I've donated half a dozen recovered artifacts to the (Local Native American) Nation Museum and mapped part of the original 17th century structure of the Jesuit Mission erected on what's now the reservation. I'm more than happy to let you know the specifics of it if you want to send me a PM, but this is a very small town and I would rather not publicly state which it is. I've also donated one likely Maritime Archaic find to the Labrador Heritage Museum.

    I've done that largely with my own equipment and monetary investment, and the occasional loan of a GPR cart from a local university.

    While I was directly in the field (at least in school), I was part of a team from Bates College that excavated and catalogued a Byzantine bath house sat beneath an Ottoman glassworks in Istanbul. I was on the cataloguing end of it; I wasn't never on site. It was more or less a bottom level internship for job experience. I didn't attend Bates. I have an associate who did.

    I've been involved in other projects, but just about everyone's eyes will have glazed over several paragraphs ago.

    TL;DR - What I'm trying to convey is that I care deeply about the preservation of knowledge and history, and I very much do everything in my power to further that cause, on my own dime despite the fact that I am now outside of the academic field.
