He was too slow to react when he didn 't know that it was a hurricane until a few hours before and told people things that got them killed. He was a hero because he let some people into his and he also warned people once he realized the storm was
Thematic Connection: I think the connection in this book was to value family. I think this was a reminder that anything bad could happen unexpectedly to a loved one. There were several horrors that day such as four plane crashes and thousands of lives lost. Not only were there thousands of lives lost but many families had to mourn over their losses. People should live their lives to the fullest and be happy with every moment.
I was out of the building just as it was about to collapse. My dad, My dad’s best friend, and the firefighter were not out of the tower. A paramedic came over to me and carried me over to the ambulance to check me out. My wrist was broken but I didn’t care because all I could think about was my dad, my dad’s best friend, and the fireman that didn’t make it out with me and the others. I saw my mom and ran to her and she was in tears and heartbroken like me.
While the nation drifted through the dog days, however, a group of terrorists was in the final stages of planning a series of attacks that would kill 3,000 people on September 11. Much of the federal government seemed to have been in a summer daze as well, missing the warning signs of what would become the deadliest act of terrorism on U.S. soil. While some in the intelligence community raised red flags, the White House had brushed off warnings of an impending attack and the CIA was failing to share information with the FBI about the terrorists ' travels. It took 99 days—until December 19, 2001—for the fires at Ground Zero to be extinguished.Cleanup at Ground Zero wasn 't officially completed until May 30, 2002. It took 3.1 million hours of labor to clean up 1.8 million tons of debris at a total cost of cleanup of $750
Which explains why the building collapsed just a couple hours after the attack.

The article “ No Firemen at Ground Zero This 9/11” written by Michael Burke and published by the Wall street journal is a persuasive piece about first responders at 9/11 who died are not being properly honored at the 10th anniversary ceremony. He uses narration and tone in his piece to achieve his goal of persuading the influential readers of the Wall Street journal that they should stand up with him and give the mayor heat to involve every person who sacrificed their life to help people on 9/11. The way Burke changes the tone halfway through the piece is an important part to this article. This article starts out as an emotional writing meant to make the audience remember an event that happened 10 years ago. He uses diction and pathos effectively drawing you in.
Planes with enough fuel were told to return to their airport of origin, and the rest was diverted to airports across Canada. Fearing the attacks may not be over and worried that other planes could be turned into “destructive missiles,” Transport Canada instructed NAV CANADA (the agency that handles air traffic control) not to redirect planes to large urban areas, such as Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. Canada was also upset because they lost 24 Canadiens in the Twin Towers attack, the youngest of these age 29 and the oldest 70. Canada 's economy also would have suffered because of the attacks as most of their supplies comes from the United States. Canada was a quiet leader in sending aid, special rescue units, and equipment.
In Campbell Robertson’s New York Times article, “Charges Filed in Katrina Inquiry”, he talks about the killing of six innocent civilians. According to documents the civilians were walking, unarmed, over a bridge to get food and visit family members, when they were shot at by officers. When Lieutenant Lohman arrived at the scene he concluded that “the shooting was ‘legally unjustified’” and they started the cover up (Robertson). In this situation the police uses their powers to cover-up their wrongdoings so they don’t have to take responsibility for their actions. Robertson’s article also claims that there are other similar situations, for example a man found burned by police to hide evidence.
did their best to defend themselves for 5 days and made many things saying that the Soviets tried warning the plane or trying to get the plane’s attention and didn’t work and many other ideas like that. The pilot that was given the mission was interviewed and talked about what he had to do and the instructions he was given. In the end the Soviets finally said in a conference that the U.S.S.R did shoot the Korean airline down and that they would do it again if they had to or needed to. After the day of September 5th, chills went down people’s spines and left people concerned why the Soviets would do such a terrible thing. The president of the U.S. Ronald Reagan called it a horrible thing.
A Muslin friend and I were discussing the fear that some Americans feel when they encounter him. He was born in America and considers himself a good citizen. I have known him for years. After 9-11 he was not allowed to play outside when we were kids. His parents were afraid that he would be bullied or even assaulted because of the attack on the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon in Virginia, and the crashed airplane in Pennsylvania.
“The JFK assassination was the seminal national event in the lives of the Baby Boomer generation.” (Donald Jeffries) The tragic incident that happened in 1963 will never be forgotten, but somehow good things came from it. John F. Kennedy was a strong man and did what he believed was right. He changed the nation before and after his death. John F. Kennedy was traveling to Dallas enjoying his day. He was on a trip to help the factional split in the Texas Democratic party.
