Is it just me?

Almost every book has to mention the attacks on 9/11. Is it just me? Or is every author throwing it in their for good measure? It's always bothered me that Izzy's birthday was stolen. It's been a constant reminder of her birthday months before her birthday. I know if I had raised her, a reminder of her birthday wouldn't bother me, but I didn't so it kind of makes me sad. Maybe it's in a bunch of books but most people don't think twice about it.

My daughter's father was born on 9/11 - in 1960. I get the issue with reminders, he died in 1985 and I found out in 1982.
