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.

But it was the start of what’s now the Twenty Years’ War between the United States and al-Qaeda a conflict that both sides have lost.

The 16th Street Baptist Church bombing marked a turning point during the Civil Rights Movement. Intended as a meeting place for civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., the the attack created an uproar. The bombing took place in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963, and it was an act of white supremacist terrorism performed by the Klu Klux Klan.

The Boston Massacre is an event that will continue to live in infamy for many years to come. The events surrounding the shot heard ‘round the world will forever be clouded in mystery, however; the examination of these events is critical to a larger understanding of the British and Colonial relationship.

This may have been how these British guards actually felt. However, I believe that the British guards shot colonials on March 5, 1770 because they felt as though their life was in danger.
