“If we learn nothing from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” This quote comes from Sandy Dahl , the wife of the pilot on flight 93. When thinking about 9/11 this quote comes to mind because on that particular day, the world was reminded how short life really is. This quote also intertwines with 9/11 because it teaches us how there is no time to hate, but to move forward and help each other hand in hand. Even though I was only a year old when September 11th happened, I want to understand this horrific event that went down in history of the United States. These attacks were a changing point in American society because it increased the security in American airports, started a war in Iraq and Afghanistan,

And Then There Were None Synopsis In "And Then There Were None", the story starts with a mysterious person titled "E. N. Owen" inviting 8 different men and women from the United Kingdom to Soldier Island. The only known thing about Soldier Island, is that some millionaire had purchased it for his own entertainment. The 8 people consisted of Vera Claythorne, Philip Lombard, William Blore, Dr. Armstrong, Emily Brent, General Macathur, Tony Marson, and Judge Wargrave. Each person was sent a letter specifying a different reason to go to Soldier Island.

Towards the end of the story that thought changes and the characters realize they did survive their time at sea and overcame the odds. This didn’t happen until the men formed their comradery and worked together overcoming Nature. Teamwork and cooperation from the crew members to the Captain are all very essential. Crane’s shows that unless man works together with their own unique abilities and not try and do everything individually that the can overcome even the greatest odds. Much like the Captain who was weak and injured couldn’t survive on his own but he could instruct his crew and advise them on how to get to shore.
The first thing that struck me during the documentary was how the people involved in 9/11 didn’t responded the way they were expected to respond to a plane hitting the tower. They responded as if it were a house fire. It really exemplified how people have ordinary reactions to extraordinary events. During the 9/11 segment of the documentary is talked about the stages of survival, which I found interesting because I can relate to it on a small scale. Things don’t always go as planned, and sometimes they really don’t.
