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.

For instance, “Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker on April 30th, 1945” (Axelrod 2). Adolf Hitler was a Nazi politician, and some believe he alone is to be blamed for the Holocaust, even though the Nuremberg Trials proved many others were guilty as well. When millions of people are killed, and one person that helped gets away, it is hard to be content. In addition to Hitler, “Goring was sentenced to death by hanging but two hours before his execution the “last renaissance man” committed suicide, taking a cyanide capsule he had managed to smuggle into the cell” (Catherwood and Horvitz 3). He had been tried and sentenced to death at Nuremberg, but instead of taking his punishment he rebelled.

The aforementioned article describes the debate occurring regarding the Texas massacre and the gun violence associated with it. 26 people were killed in the shooting, however the perpetrator himself soon became one of the many victims of a fatal gunshot wound and soon killed himself after being chased down.

President Donald Trump claimed that the act was the work of a disabled man and that if Devin Patrick Kelley, the perpetrator, had not been shot, there would have been many more casualties. Meanwhile, those who oppose the second amendment persist in using this situation to dispute gun rights,
