Despite not ever having setting foot in NYC, what happened on 9-11 has impacted me greatly, and the events of that day remain a very clear memory.
Now, I personally know that I could not stomach any jokes about that particular day, but I do remember when, a couple of months later on 'Saturday Night Live', they did some spoofs regarding Bin Laden et.all and how I was so relieved to finally be able to laugh at something, that I almost wanted to cry...in gratitude.
...Well, there's MY emotional moment of the day.

Humor is a great way to release stress - it's touchy and its easy to say something wrong, but laughter releases stress. I understand what you are saying.
