Ever since 9/11, Americans have felt vulnerable to another 9/11-type attack. Even today, all that is on the news are terror groups wreaking havoc all over the world. Susan Faludi wrote The Terror Dream that outlined how America came to the impression that manly men are needed to protect our nation/women. After 9/11, America needed heroes, someone to look to for inspiration. As 9/11 played over and over on television for weeks after, America found that the first responders were the heroes they were looking for.
1 Both “T.S.A” by Amit Majmudar and “September 12, 2001” by X.J Kennedy reflect how 9/11 negatively affected people differently. “September 12, 2001” by X. J Kennedy was written past the 9/11 attacks and tells the story of a young couple experiencing tragedy that would change their lives. Another post 9/11 poem “T.S.A” by Amit Majmudar gives the perspective of a young Muslim man facing racial profiling through airport security.

The huge attack of Iraq on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 left an everlasting impact on the US. On this day many fatalities occurred and much sadness fell upon the world. The first plane of terrorist flew into the North Tower, with a couple of minutes between the second plane flew into the South Tower. The effects of this disaster on the United States were many, including the immediate aftermath/roughage, the airlines, the economy, and the ongoing wars. In the immediate aftermath of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers, the city became known as a dust city.
On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, a terrible tragedy occurred, resulting in the twin towers of the World Trade Center to collapse. The towers were stormed by two Islamic planes that were participating in a suicide attack and were burned down in daylight. This attack was believed to be carried out by an Islamic terrorist group that goes by the name of al-Qaeda. During this massacre, there were over 3000 casualties and a huge number of first responders suffered irreversible health complications. Raymond Alexander and his son Robert Alexander were first responders during 9/11.
September 11th, 2001, a date marked by history. A day where thousands of Americans would wake up to their family, their friends, and the world one last time. Over 3,000 lives taken away because of the actions of a few terrorists who wanted nothing more than to watch America fall to the ground. Suicide Bombers cause global terror, and their motives and strategies are all part of a complex system of sacrifice and glory. Justifying the actions of these terrible people is almost impossible, but learning the origin of suicide bombers, examining their tactics, and discussing their motives will provide a better look inside the mind of a bomber and possibly give an explanation as to why terrorist attacks occur.
Terrorist Attack On 9-11 All of us have heard of the event “9/11”. In September 2001, when Osama Bin Laden decided to attack symbolic targets. He made the decision to attack the Pentagon, and the world trade centers (twin towers). The terrorist attack on 9-11 is one of the most known attacks because of how many people died, and mentally/emotionally hurt. My interest was sparked because, I always wanted to know about how many people died, and what caused this tragic event.
Causes and Effects of 9/11 September 11, 2001 was a horrific day for all American citizens. Four American commercial flights were hijacked by Islamic extremist that would soon crash into some of the most important structures in America. From that day on we will remember the ones we lost and the ones who gave their lives to save others. This was the first major attack since Pearl Harbor in 1941 on American soil. Nineteen militants who were suicide bombers crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field which had a central and global effect on the world caused by global terrorism increase and the spread of the group Islamic Extremist.
Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001, United States awakened to the tragic events occurring in New York City. The nation came to a stop as hijacked planes collided into the country’s beloved Twin Towers, crumbling down within the matter of seconds. 15 years ago, the United States faced a major terrorist attack, with over 3,000 deaths and evidently bringing out the rage within the citizens. However, targets of revenge for this situation are faced by Sikh Americans, who still experience discrimination with their physical appearance in the nation today. Within the United States, the media limits the coverage Sikh Americans experience on a daily basis, and essentially undermining the discrimination that many of them still face today.
