9/11

Discussion: Ethical Imperative of the Time Traveler

Do historically weighted tragedies such as The Holocaust, the Columbine shootings, or September 11th (just to name the ones on the top of my head) impose any kind of moral or ethical imperative upon time travelers?

As writers, how do we deal with such events in a responsible manner without sacrificing our plots?

Should we bother, and if so, why?
