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. Four passenger airlines, all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California, were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda members. One plane hit the Pentagon just outside of Washington D.C., the second plane crashed in a field in Pennslyvania, and the last two planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Within one hour and 42 minutes both 110 story towers were completely on the ground, with debris filling the air and fires starting to spread.
In Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ short story “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings”, Marquez writes about an unexpected outsider and how people deal with that outsider or how they deal with the unknown and unexpected. In this short story, what they first assume is a “lonely castaway from some foreign shipwrecked by the storm” (51) shows up but after talking to their neighbor “who knew everything about life and death” (51), they then assume that he is an angel. Immediately the whole town rejects him, “they did not have the heart to clob him to death… before going to bed he dragged him out of the mud and locked him up with the hens in the wire chicken coop” (52). Pelayo and Elisenda, in addition to the rest of the town, reject the old man and begin treating

However, the rebellion comes a lot earlier than the animals expect because the men oppress the animals by forgetting to feed them. After many hours that lengthen into the evening, “the animals were still unfed. At last, they could not stand it no longer” (38).
Pelayo and Elisenda, the family, the very old man with enormous wings is staying with are the first to disregard the golden rule. From the beginning they mistreated the angel by making him stay in a unsanitary environment like the chicken coop. “..before going to bed, he dragged him out of the mud and locked him up with the hens in the wire chicken coop”.(363) Instead of helping the angel they used him for their own personal gain. They took advantage that everyone in town knew there was a flesh-and blood angel at their place to make money. “...Pelayo and Elisenda were happy with fatigue, for less than a week they had crammed their rooms with money and the line of pilgrims waiting their turn to enter still reached beyond the horizon.

In the film there was a scene where the birds attacked a small part of the town while many citizens where at a restaurant and nearly killed half of the towns people which supports the belief of the town being too small to survive the birds. With the arrival of the birds it causes such a good living environment to become a dangerous horror scene and with the city being so small there is nowhere to hide and take cover. Also, it makes it easy for thousands of birds to invade and take over their city. With there being nowhere to avoid the birds and isolate yourself from them it causes the situation to be impossible to overcome. With no one being able to find safety readers become worried and scared which is why this is reflective.
