We know America as the land of the free and the land of opportunities therefore many people come in and out of the country on a regular basis. However, after this event airline security had to be strictly enforced in order to prevent another disastrous event from happening again. It’s very sad to see all of the videos of people crying, running desperately and even jumping off the towers. This past Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of the
Just thinking that one of your family members could be dead right now if one flight wouldn 't have been canceled is kind of a scary feeling. 9/11 changed America forever and it will never be the same. Many people sat in front of televisions and radios listening hoping there loved ones would come home. Some even expected calls. Al Qaeda attacked the WTC for many reasons.
This was a huge help to the invasion as pilots claimed hundreds of railcars and locomotives loaded with munitions, supplies, and troops. In turn, the attacks demoralized German forces and caused them to have delayed reinforcements to the Overlord areas. With every bit of German support gone, the Allied Air Force had also suffered its losses. Many Allied pilots knew that it was tough exclaiming “we’re killing them as fast as they come at us, but [the Allied forces] can’t hold out much longer” (116). In the
George Bernard Shaw once said, “Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” Everyone is the way he or she is for a number of reasons. Sometimes things that happen in someone’s personal life majorly influences them; other times world events have a lasting impact on a person. Many things may influence a life, but in my case, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, an ongoing recession, and the legality of same-sex marriage have taken a great impact on me, my life, and my views. On September 11, 2001, many lives were changed forever when terrorists decided to crash a total of four airplanes into the Pentagon outside of Washington, D.C., the two World Trade Center towers in New York, and a field in Pennsylvania.
Our country just lost loved ones, some with bright minds, and kind hearts. In the case of flight 93, men and women sacrificed their lives that day to either make sure a plane went down in a field instead of hitting the Pentagon. New York City police officers and firemen went into the towers to help save others, without fear for their own lives. We should not forget the citizens who lost their lives in those four planes or the others that worked that day in the Twin Towers. People theses days will never forget truly the emptiness they felt and continue to feel for all these people who lost their lives to terrorists.
On page 446 it says “ Sullenberger knew that the situation was to dire for the plane to stay in the air”. This tells us that he had to make a quick decision or people where going to die. He then decided to land the plane in the Hudson river. People say that Sully was a hero that day and he was. The story Grapes of Wrath there was a big obstacle that
It was needless to say that at that point after the crash everyone was scared. There were more than just random individuals on that shuttle. The crew on the shuttle was relatable to every American citizen. On that day, husbands, wives, and children were stripped of their hopes and dreams as their loved ones died on their journey. Reagan knew that he had to mention this fear while promoting individuals to keep their hope alive and to keep trying.
A tragedy is an event that is horrific and often can be never be healed. However, with the presence of the correct type of leadership, a tragedy can progressively produce a better world for mankind. For example, the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. were horrific tragedies. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, world leaders, such as President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair, produced speeches that motivated people to prevail over tragedy and instead take the opportunity to make a greater and more prosperous future for the world. President Bush and Prime Minister Blair also had to use their speeches to turn the world from terrorism to a more positive course.
However, in the weeks and months following the attacks, I would hear stories of people that were injured in the attack, but did not let that stop them from living their lives. Not only did the injured recover from the attacks, but so did the rest of America. I saw that we could overcome the bad in the world. Unfortunately, terror attacks are still happening across the world. From the Paris attacks to the Brussels attacks, every time I hear that there has been another terrorist attack, I become very upset.
The collapse of the building can explain this is a conspiracy. In NIST’s Twin Towers Report, NIST ignored dozens of testimonies from reporters and police officers, WTC employees, even 118 testimonies provided by the Fire Department of New York. (globalresearch.ca) During a TV interview with PBS for “American Rebuilds” in 2004, WTC 7 owner and Twin Towers leaseholder Larry Silverstein made the following statement about the destruction of Building 7: “I remember getting a call from the fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and
