This attack exposed the vulnerability of the United States as a nation. The 9/11 attacks changed the country forever; some lost family members, friends, and those who survived are forever hunted by the events of September 11, 2001. The entire country was in pandemonium including my family. I remember the day like it was yesterday. For me it was no different from every other Wednesday.
What do people individually recall when it comes to 9/11? I remember the images of the bodies falling from the burning buildings and the sound when they hit the ground, or the voices of terrified and shocked people in New York crying, running, saving themselves. As I mentioned before, living in a multimedia culture is both a blessing and a curse. People caught in the Twin Towers knowing that there is no way to survive, called their loved ones before the buildings collapsed. Passengers on United 93 were even longer aware of their impending death, so they took the chance to say a proper goodbye to their loved ones; a “haunting privilege” as Seidel calls it (94).
George W. Bush’s “9/11 Address to the Nation” was a speech given after the tragic event that occurred on September 11th. He addressed this speech to the people of America on the night of the tragic event, highlighting how Americas freedom was attacked. Bush sent out special forces to find out who was responsible for this, so they can give them the punishment they deserve. The speech was to commemorate the lives lost in the incident, as well as to show that the United States is a strong, bright country. In the speech president Bush used metaphor to compare how the United States is a strong country.

It was a scorching 100 degree summer day. It was the start of the 11 year state championship baseball game against Albert Lea, I still remember that game like it was yesterday. It was miserable out we played three games that day before reaching the state championship. When the game started I kind of forgot about how hot it was out. We started fast scoring 2 runs in the top of the 1st inning Dylan and Reno each crossed the plate that inning.
Dane Kutnick is in right field , Tanner Smith at first, and Jason VanDenLangenberg is catching.

Since 1926 the Cardinals have won eleven World Series, and they make the playoffs just about every year. The last time the Cubs have won a World Series was 1908, they only won it twice, and there are many theories on why the Cubs have not won it since like the Billy goat curse. Another difference is the teams mascots. The Cardinals mascot is a cardinal named Fredbird which was introduced on April 6, 1979. The Cardinals have a second mascot called the rally squirrel, which showed up in the middle of a postseason game which the cardinals were losing, and after that they won the game, and went on to win the World Series.
It affected people because a lot of people died that day and some got hurt really bad. People loss their love ones in that day. Till now people still can 't believe 9/11 happened.

Not only did they lose someone they loved or almost lost their lives, this event affected them long term. Some have medical issues, mental issues, and emotional issues.

Out of the 2,606 people that died in the World Trade Center, 1,762 were residents of New York (Statistic Brain Research Institue). People not only died from the explosion of the airplane crashing into the twin towers, but had to make the decision to jump because there was no way out.
The story hasn 't changed of late, Jeff Locke continued the strong streak of Pirates ' pitching in a 3-2 win over the White Sox yesterday; Gerrit Cole will look to do the same tonight against Jeff Samardzija and the White Sox. Last night, the Pirate bats exploded in the first inning by putting up three runs in a hurry, but that 's all they could muster throughout the night. If Locke and the Pirates ' bullpen wouldn 't have been so good, the Pirates -- more than likely -- would 've added a tally to the loss column. In an attempt to generate more offense tonight, the Pirates will have to go through veteran right-hander Jeff Samardzija. Samardzija is no stranger to the Pirates, as he has plenty of history against them.
