This was a disturbing moment in our history that shook the very foundation of America. This is the first terrorist attack that we have experienced in the 21st century. President Bush spoke out to the American people to empower and soothe them in a vulnerable time. President Bush reassures citizens and the victim’s families that America and its people are not only strong but are safe and will rise up again.

In the readers’ perspective, Jackson Jackson is model of the anti-hero character, and the believable and relatable character is one of the enjoyable stories to
Rhetorical Analysis The fear that was created from 9/11 was no doubt over whelming. Charles Krauthammer argues in this article that we as Americans created this fear ourselves.

Throughout his article he presents a lot of research and then analyses what he finds. In the article Krauthammer is trying to convince Americans, the reader that we freaked out to 9/11.
The discourses given by each person were written after a devastating disaster broke out. In one, a terrorist act was committed, in the other disastrous military event and both in different countries. Nonetheless, both were extremely devastating and impactful. Due to the state of sorrow and anger in both events, the writers took advantage to create persuasive speeches that were more likely to affect people. Winston Churchill was a prime minister.
Luke Weiner The bombing of Japan is a day that we shall never forget. Some people believe that it was necessary to drop the bomb in order to end the war as quickly as possible while others believe that it was unneeded and completely immoral. The question will always be asked, does the pros of the bombing outweigh the cons? Would it have been morally responsible to invade Japan instead? The morals of the bombing are in the eye of the beholder.
Historical calamities like the Holocaust, and terrorist attacks like 9/11, are two examples of when the outcomes and actions taken took too much from humanity to just be looked over, and that’s why whether or not you had good intentions should be something we know ourselves by, but in the end we should be judged according to the results of our actions and who, or what may be affected in
America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come.

In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.
National Security needs to know that torture only increases the number of terrorists because they want to be able to seek revenge. Torture victims usually tell National Security what they want to hear, this view is not only shared by many people but by John McCain, a victim of torture himself. Not only does National Security not hear the truth but using torture jeopardizes their safety. It removes the shame of torturing prisoners and it creates new enemies.

The spiritual greatness of Cleansing the world and their lives to a holy battle. In some cases, radical groups use benevolence, suicide, and martyrdom to spread word that suicide bombing is a Godly act. Terrorists frequently have an end of the world anarchy worldview and see the world as a simply example of good and evil. They also think through their actions, they can use their values of family, religion, and race to bring triumph of the good. Acting on the lord's behalf to defend these values is seen to be way more important than life.
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall,” Confucius states. Whether it was the collapse of two monumental giants in New York City, the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary or the Boston Marathon Bombing, the United States has witnessed countless, unfathomable acts of terror. Despite all of the recent tragedies, the events of September 11, 2001 will remain a memory in the hearts of all people who watched, in disbelief and fear, the collapse of the World Trade Center. On that fateful day, the terrorists believed they had won the battle by carrying out catastrophic devastation. However, their actions would unite America and create a movement of patriotism.
In the midst of potential war and terror many are worried of what the future holds. This is how the American people felt after the terrible terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The government had to think fast and make brash decisions to protect our country, and The Patriot Act (during the time) was the best solution. The Patriot Act was one of the fastest acts passed, many government officials were only thinking of the present, and ways to prevent foreign attack. The act has been edited several times over the years due to many mistakes of violating individual’s rights.
This event was a test to show if the new country could take the violence current countries had to take. Shays Rebellion showed the American government was weak and needed a change soon. This event was so tragic that this led to the destruction of The Articles of Confederation. In current day America we are now governed by a stronger government under The Constitution that is why the event is so important in American history and that is why I chose this event.
Evidently, some had predicted the events that took place during this period as analysts had indicated that New Orleans was sitting on a time bomb.
