It is 9:00 AM, American airline #11 crashed in between the 93rd-99th floor of the North Tower. 18 minutes later, the next plane, airline #175 hit the south tower. Now they are scorching into flames, and by 10:30 both towers had fallen straight down. It seems like the towers should have toppled over, but they did not, but It fell straight down. However, the planes hit so high up in the towers that the towers did not topple over, now if the planes hit lower they would have toppled over.
Similarly, time before 2001's event, the 19 hijacking men took a lot of preparation before the 9/11 attack such as years of training and much flight classes with no suspicion what so ever. It can also be compared that the two events both happened deliberately, intentionally for the United States- ubrupt unforeseen and unpredicted. The two separate attacks also did very much damage to the country. During that attack on Pearl Harbor it damaged 21 ships of the U.S, destroyed 188 airplanes, killed 2,403 Americans and injured 1,178. During 9/11's attack it damaged and destroyed both twin towers in the World Trade Center and the west side of the pentagon killing a total of 2,996 people and injuring over
Of the three planes that crashed, two of the planes hit the Twin Towers, and one hit the Pentagon. The plane that didn’t hit anything had passengers that fought back and crashed it into a field in Pennsylvania. Powell Middle School had a trip that offered any honor roll student the chance to go on a school trip to New York. I worked hard all year, and I was able to attend the trip. We went to many places, one being the 9/11 Memorial.
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. Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control.
9/11 became the day that a tragic event killed thousands, injured hundreds and changed America forever. On September 11, 2001, also known as 9/11, one of the greatest tragedies had struck America. This was caused by a terrorist attack that will forever be remembered by Americans. The attack started at 8:45 a.m. when the flight, American Airlines Boeing 767, that was holding 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center that was located in New York City. The massive explosion caused burning debris to shower over the surrounding buildings and onto the streets below, which made it clear that America was now under attack.
Many of my oldest friends share unique traditions that to the average town, would seem remarkable and even unfathomable. Being exposed to these different types of people has prepared me for relations with people unlike me in the future. I believe that my experiences with those of different cultures will lead me to be a successful cadet at the Academy. When my family moved to a post in the year of 2011, my environment drastically changed. The military post of West Point introduced me to new friends of many religions, races and cultures.
Every Once and awhile, tragedy strikes, and the whole country sits still. On January 13th, 1982, Air Florida Flight 90 crashed. An event such as this one, though tragic, is sadly fairly common. Although, on January 13th, every soul in the united states had their eyes glued on the news channels, following the crash. There are many speculations about why this crash, in particular influenced the public so dramatically.
Just Eleven minutes into the Flight the plane exploded eight miles away from the coast of Long Island then creating from that moment on a national mystery of what had caused the plane to explode (TWA flight 800 crash - Atlantic Ocean off New York:1996 2). Soon after the aircraft was submerged in water and had been seen by many as it went down in flames, water vessels in the surrounding area were able to reach the site within minutes, but soon to be discovered all 230 people had not survived with all bodies being found and 95% of the plane being recovered (McDowell-Smith 1). With all the information before the crash being easily attained the cause for the crash was unknown which leads many to wonder what had actually caused this tragedy. The misfortunate catastrophe of the explosion of Flight 800 brought grief to many which brought people longing for an answer to bring closure
Cesar Chavez has inspirational core values to accept all people, celebrate the community, respect life and the environment, non-violence, innovation, preference to help the most needy, knowledge, sacrifice, service to others, and determination. His first core value to accept all people, I was raised to not judge people based on their race or religion. Being raised this way has made me curious about other peoples backgrounds and cultures. Therefore, during my years in college I would like to spend a semester abroad in order to incorporate myself in another culture and learn as much as possible. Celebrating the community, one of the major ways that I have done this is being involved in Florence All-Around 4-H. We take pride in giving back to the community whether it is to help an elderly couple clean up their yard or volunteering for town events.
One of the positive sides of having Cohort connections whether it’s in the classroom or externally, is understanding that I’m not the only one pursuing my doctoral degree. It’s knowing others in my classroom or even those, who once took the course previously have all faced the same challenges. Take for example, I’m a fellow veteran and all veterans at the begin stages of their military career all went through boot camp. It was there that you learned the meaning of honor, loyalty, and integrity, and basically what it takes to be member of the armed forces. But knowing when I need to ask for help or if someone else needed assistance, it was always there.
9-11 influence me by all of those good Americans who died from the attack. And it also influenced me because I never got to see the world trade center in real life before it was destroyed. And the world trade center is something that I really wanted to see because of how unique it was. The world trade center is now a part of our history and will be in everybody’s hearts forever. Plus, since the attack the united states is too strict in order to do anything.
Special Agent Leonard Hatton was on his way to work that fatal morning when the towers were struck and he responded immediately. Although Hatton wasn 't tasked with responding to emergencies he still went and saved many lives. He served the country as a Marian, a firefighter, an FBI agent(Heros to Remember) and he gave his life during the country’s time of need. Ordinary people came to do amazing things on this day including Tom Burnett who was the COO and vice president of Thoratec Corporation and was on flight 93 when he noticed it had been hijacked like the others. Himself and other passengers decided to fight back and gain control of the plane.

No longer can you just get on a plane to visit your family or go on vacation or the simple business trip. The whole traveling thing has been a nightmare. The long wait that you have to be in line, the security you have to go through like the metal detectors, the patting down, the bag scanner, and the marshal that are on board with the passengers this entire thing that the security people do is for the safety of the traveler. This war has also had a huge impact on our economical funding. From the attack of 9/11 there has been an estimated the direct costs resulting from the 9/11 attacks at only $27.2 billion.
There are no words to describe how hard it is too loose someone you love, whether it is a child or a parent or a friend. They have lost body parts, their peace of mind, and kept them from achieving their goals in various areas. “Millions of people were affected by the September 11 terrorist attacks — from physical and mental health problems to financial loss” (The city of New York). The lives of New Yorkers will forever be changed because of this terrorist attack on our country, and hopefully next time we will all be more
