“All these planes and crashes keep replaying in my mind everyday, that day will always be remembered as one of the most tragic attacks on America” (“Aaron Tveit”). September 11th was a very horrific day filled with sadness and grief. Terrorism then became a main priority to keep an eye on and making sure the United States stays safe. On this very date four planes were hijacked and forced to crash in specific locations. September 11th has changed the landscape of America by improving National Security, conducting better immigration laws, and the rebuilding of the community after the whole massacre.
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world.

Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
All of this took place near Aramil in the Soviet Union. The objective behind, what you call a successful mission, was to intercept America’s U-2 spy aircraft, basically messing up their mission. An American U-2 spy plane is shot down while conducting espionage over the Soviet Union. The incident derailed an important summit meeting between President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev that was scheduled for later that month. The U-2 Incident is very significant, not just to the cold war, but to the United States of America because Nikita Khruschev wanted to wreck relations between the two countries, Eisenhower was president at the time, and Khruschev announced that he would no longer deal with the United States of America until Eisenhower was out of
I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship. And I just went to Tennessee for a football tournament with kids that were a grade above me. Everything was going so well for me, but the one thing I was missing was a touchdown. That was the one thing I needed in order for me to say to my 10 year old weird self “I am one of the greatest football players at my age.” Now at that time I was starting cornerback on defense, but on
