America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come. Shortly after the attacks on 9/11 the Government acted very quickly. As stated in an article by Jaeshin Kim, “The Bush Administration launched the bombing of Afghanistan, and Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act allowing law enforcement powers to detain foreign nationals or immigrants suspected of terrorism” (Kim 1). In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.
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.
When going to war it is in everyone’s mind to get scared. It doesn’t matter, either men or women, everyone has a right to get scared whenever they hear that they are going to war. However, General Patton gave his soldiers confidence by giving a speech in front of all the soldiers about what will happen at war. Hope to go forward and reach personal conquests exists in every man, and this often navigates the hero into a state of tragedy involving suffering. World war two was the most vicious war in history.
He knew that many good men had done good things during the war, far greater than him yet the country had latched onto Dorrigo and made him into some larger than life man who could not possibly exist. As he moved up to the lectern, a rush of adrenaline passed through him and as the applause died down to a murmur, Dorrigo started to speak.
There have been a number of effects on the everyday lives of Americans made by the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. First of all, United States troops invaded Afghanistan less than a month after the World Trade Center attacks to release al-Qaeda’s grip on the Middle East. In 2003, the United States troops invaded Iraq, which was not directly related to the attacks but was an important weapon in the War of Terror. The United States stepped their game up in many departments around the country. They upgraded the airport security, had a lockdown on immigration and deportation, and many more things that could ever be a threat to the U.S. and its
This attack exposed the vulnerability of the United States as a nation. The 9/11 attacks changed the country forever; some lost family members, friends, and those who survived are forever hunted by the events of September 11, 2001. The entire country was in pandemonium including my family. I remember the day like it was yesterday. For me it was no different from every other Wednesday.
My great-grandfather, was a hero because he fought in world war 2, after many other hardships in his life. A big reason for that statement as a hero is the reason stated prior to this. He wasn’t forced to fight, he signed up for it. Even though he lived in Italy, the tension in Germany in the mid 1930’s was too much for everyone, including his family. The issue was that they wanted to go to America, but they couldn’t afford the expenses of taking
The act of President Bush accused Osama as the main actor of the attack, we could see it clearly that his ‘intelligence’ which because they can know who the real enemy is in just few hours of the attacks. It is very paradox, while America was under attack, they did not even know that they were targeted to be attacked. But, in a few minutes, they can now that the attacker is a Muslim. It is not logic. But, powers makes people
In Ernst Jünger’s book, Storm of Steel¸ this passage captured his attitude about war: confusion caused by inexperience. This confusion surrounding war comes from the fact that he is an experienced soldier. He and his fellow inexperienced soldiers had shown up to fight with a yearning “for the experience of the extraordinary” and on their first day of the war, they got that experience (Jünger, p. 5). A violent shelling caused Jünger to rethink his initial thoughts of war. He had been sure war would supply him with “the great, the overwhelming, and the hallowed experience” (Jünger, p. 5).
Those brave men and women paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect their country from being reduced to ashes once more. America became a nation who questioned the intentions of every Middle Eastern person. Today, there are Middle Eastern men and women who are pulled over for “suspicious activity.” Some people will even walk a little faster or in a different direction when a Muslim walks down the street. September 11, 2001 will remain the day when children became orphans and parents became childless. As those giant towers collapsed, so did our sense of security and the “safest place on Earth” became a home of fear.
Understandably, it 's a way to express semantically the feelings of gratitude and admiration that a large portion of the population holds for the few who have endured years the many horrors of war. No doubt these military men and women are all brave, selfless, and commendable people who are dedicated to service. But, lest they perform some heroic feat, I would argue that they likely fall short of being true heroes. Dakota Meyer is a true American hero. Four consecutive trips into the kill zone of an enemy ambush to save the lives of 36 marines and soldiers
The country found itself in utter terror and a sense of paralysis immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on American soil by the al Qaeda network. “In the aftermath of the first attack on the American continent since the War of 1812, and the deadliest in the nation’s history, the country rallied behind the president” (Milkis & Nelson, 2012, 445). During this heightened time of support, the Bush Administration worked to expand the presidential powers. One of his most immediate decisions was to work with the National Security Agency (NSA) to monitor communications traffic between the United States and foreign countries in an effort to catch unknown terrorists before they acted against the United States again. According to Eichenwald,
Joe and his teammates, who he became very close and good friends with, had to work together precisely in pursuit of winning the gold medal. His teammates also struggled with life in the past, outside of the Olympics. Some of his teammates included working class men who were in poverty, just as Joe. I believe Joe and the others who were on his team won because of the dedication they put forth and how they all related to each other in similar ways. The fearful beginnings they all had motivated them to do their very best in the end.
