Some people mourn in different ways. Commemorative clothing is just one of many things done to remember that event.
I think this goes to the heart of things. I'm somebody who wouldn't put a flag or other patriotic diaper on my baby, because I'm just not into patriotic displays (not that there's anything wrong with that, just not for me). Same with these commemorative diapers.
While some people mourn by avoiding things that recall their memory of something bad, others mourn by approaching or holding onto their memories. It is this later group who tends to like commemorative clothing of any kind, whether it is of positive events or negative events.
If I had lost family or friends in 9/11, I would be touched by the availability of these diapers even if I personally didn't want to buy them. I would also be touched by the donation of all proceeds to a 9/11 charity. I think many survivors of any tragedy feel that most people have forgotten what happened to them and/or their pain, but things like commemorative clothing, even if it's not one's personal style), remind them that people haven't forgotten them or their loved ones who were lost.
So, kudos to Linda, for not forgetting.
