September 11, 2001 marked a devastating day in the history of the United States. Four passenger planes were hijacked by terrorist. Two of the planes were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact of the two planes caused large fires that led to the collapse of the two tours merely two hours later. One of the other planes was crashed into the Pentagon in Washington D.C. The last plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, but was believed to be headed for another important landmark of the United States. The last plane never made it to that last landmark because of the brave passengers that showed true courage by intervening in the attack. I remember the day the tragedy happened; we were all in school when the news came. Teachers were all in a panic, but only being in kindergarten I didn’t really understand what was going on. They talked about an attack on the twin towers, how they were coming down and there would soon be nothing left. We watched it on the news in our classes and you could see the confusion on all of our faces. We knew something was wrong, there were bad people in our country and they were burning our buildings. However, we did not know the extremities of what was going on or how many people had lost their lives. When we here the “9 11” most of our minds go to the twin towers. 8:46 and 9:02; those are the times in which our nation was changed by two planes devastating crashes. The first tower stood for 56 minutes while burning and the second lasted the waves of destruction for 102 minutes. They took a mere twelve seconds to fall and from there began to ripple out. The numbers of this day are unbelievable; there were 2,810 people who were killed in the attacks, 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 NYPD officers, 37 Port Authority police officers, 22 soldiers in Operation Enduring Freedom, 1,402 people in Tower 1, 614 people in Tower 2, the ratio of men to women that died was 3:1, there were 289 bodies found intact, 19,858 body parts were found, 1,717 families got no remains, 1,609 people lost a spouse or partner, 3,051 children lost a parent,

organisations became more vulnerable to public opinion due to their large size and semi-monopolistic
As Keynes envisaged, it is a fact that large corporations, with their considerable concentration of
private power, participate in a form of democratic process whereby they are increasingly subject to
the vigilance of public opinion and consumers' force.11 However, it is also arguable that large

To apply it in current times and specifically to the new and less known form of war- unconventional terrorist war post 9/11, it has shifted global status quo to a certain degree and definitely shifted regional status quo in areas such as North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia.

In our world today almost every thing that happens is influenced by something more than just yourself. People our influenced by society and what others around them think an do. In Doris Lessing's passage Group Minds it shows us how we are influenced by society and the people close to us. Many people know what they are being influenced by or who is influencing them but still do nothing about it.

On September 11, 2001 the horrific tragedy happened in the United States. 19 militants associated with Islamic extremist hijacked four airlines and carried out suicide attacks against targets in United States. Two planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade…
There are anniversaries for 9/11 but why are they called anniversaries? When I think of anniversaries I think of happy times, not a sad time where our country had a terrorist attack. It’s one thing to remember what happened every 9/11 and do something about it. It’s completely different to call it an anniversary and have street vendors selling trinkets about it as if it was a good thing. Our country was attacked for no reason and many people died because of it. The people who…

The north tower collapsed at 10:28 a.m, after burning for 102 minutes. 1366 people died when the north tower was attacked. At 9:03 A.m the second plane crashed into the south tower. Hundreds of people were killed instantly, while others were trapped and many died after the tower collapsed. Genelle McMillan was ‘the last survivor’, often wondered how and why she survived that…
The attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001 were the direct result of the failure of US agencies, ranging from the White House to airport security, to recognize vulnerabilities present in the various symptoms. The reason why these vulnerabilities were not acknowledged and repaired is that these various agencies were trapped in a cognitive dissonance cycle of thinking. After the Cold War, terrorism was seen as a regional problem (9/11 Commission, 92). The majority of terrorist groups…
On September 11, 2001, I was attending Roosevelt Roads High School, a DODEA school in Ceiba, Puerto Rico. I was outside getting a few books from my locker when I heard my gym teacher shout as she ran toward the quad. She yelled that an airplane just hit one of the Twin Towers. I looked at one of my friends and said, “Maybe it was one of those small private planes that a pilot is learning to fly.”
I went into the classroom and as I was walked in, our teacher turned on the TV. That is when we saw…
I know that we all have distinct memories of the exact moment when we realized what was happening on Tuesday, 9-11-2001, but driving to work today (I didn't take the bus/metro), I was struck by all the American flags hanging from each overpass bridge on I-66. It reminded me of all those flags that organically appeared and stayed up for months following that horrible day 12 years ago. I then remembered that horrible feeling sitting at the kitchen table in our old row house on Capitol Hill only 10…
Pearl Harbor and 9/11 are two days that American history will always remember.
These two days, remind American society how every United States citizen needs to love
and protect this country. Though these two tragic days are many years apart, the
parallels between the two days show how the United States goes into war, increases
patriotism in America, and creates stricter laws of racial intent.
