Some American men and women have found a special calling: military service. These men and women have faithfully and bravely defended and protected the citizens of our great country for hundreds of years.

Our veterans are well-respected figures of society, a well earned role.
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.

In the crucible on page 109, Danforth is talking to Mary Warren and states, “You will confess yourself or you will hang.” This is not the first time Danforth has said this to people in the
September 11, 2001 has proven to be one of the most horrific and diving days in American history. Taking the lives of thousands, Muslim terrorists wreaked havoc on New York City’s iconic Twin Towers, pushing citizens of the United States and surrounding countries to their limits.

I’m currently reading a book by Naomi Klein called Disaster Capitalism that has led me back to the worst terrorist attack in United States history, 9/11. I remember how CNN and Fox were being flooded with the news daily.

The United States invaded Afghanistan and Iraq on the presumption they had nuclear weapons, and introduced the patriot act.
The American Flag should be protected from desecration because it is a symbol of what this country has fought for, what we continue to fight for, and how amazing of a country the United States really is. I am very much against desecration of the American flag because it disrespects something that means so much to me and so many other people in this country.

The terrorist had a calculated plan and initiated an attack so horrible that three hundred and forty three firefighters and paramedics lost their lives. Twenty three New York City police officers and thirty seven Port Authority police officers were also killed. Could we have had less casualties if we, our nation, was better prepared?
On this day 4 American planes were hijacked by terrorists. These ¾ planes had hit some pretty important buildings that killed lots of people. The first plane had hit the World Trade Center. The second plane had hit the Twin Towers. The third one hit the Pentagon.
