There are, however, situations in which betraying one’s country is unjustified. When a person or group violently and disrespectfully breaks a law, such as the Weather Underground did in their protest of the lack of attention being given to the Vietnam War, their actions are unjustified. Now let us distinguish between an unjust action and an unjust cause. The Weathermen were in my opinion morally justified to go against the government and protest the war in Vietnam (obviously protest is very different than betrayal, but for the sake of an example …). This was their morally justified cause. By bombing buildings and bashing glass, they proceeded to act unjustly and were at fault. Nevertheless, the Weather Underground was right in placing their personal beliefs over their country.
Many People are still affected emotionally by September 11 2001 today. A huge number of people are still facing mental health issues. They are trying very hard to forget about the past and move on with there every day life. Many still fear that there might be another terror attack in the United States. The American psychological association found that people living in New York who have experienced the World Trade Center attack are showing more mental health problems more than any other place. Many people feel that we should honor our love one and the police and fireman that lost their lives because of 9/11.

Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups act is an act designed to stop the contact between children and vulnerable adults who may have been harmed. These people who have harmed them will then be on a barred list and will be barred from going into contact with the people that they have harmed. This is where CRB checks come into place when entering to work with any vulnerable people to ensure that they are safe working with them and not putting danger towards the vulnerable people. This links to people with dementia because they are vulnerable therefore they will be to be safeguarded. Anyone caring or working with the dementia sufferers will need to have a CRB check carried out to ensure that they are safe working with them and aren't going to harm them.

The 9/11 Memorial has about 300,000 people visit it each year, you should be one of them to. If you go to New York the 9/11 Memorial is becoming one of the top tourist attractions in the city, and I can’t see why it's not at the top already. The 9/11 Memorial is a beautiful pool with gushing water running down its sides, and within the pool there is a smaller square pool that still has water running down to it. Just to top it off, it has trees that surround the pools, just imagine it when it’s in the fall and all the leaves turn colors and the leaves may float down and into the pool. The best part about visiting the 9/11 Memorial is that it is free! You should be one of the 300,000 a year.
New York: 9/11 Memorial and Museum: This memorial and museum of 9/11 was my favorite site in New York and it also taught me a few life lessons. When you first walk up to the sight there are these two breathtaking fountains in the shape of the square buildings that use to stand straight up. Then around the squared fountains the names of all the victims are written. Just by looking at the fountains it taught me the first lesson, to never take life for granted no matter the situation. Realizing that the victims arose that morning not realizing that it would be their last morning getting out of bed, it disturbs and rattles you a bit. When I sat back and just watched the water flow in the middle of the fountain, it truly hit me that these were all
When the twin towers were destroyed in New York, Manhattan, the people with an all american dream became devastated. The survivors of the victims lost the hopes and dreams, and the security that the United States provided for its nation. We were left not only devastated, but also vulnerable. We were no longer the beacon for freedom, but rather the nation of chaos. Over 3,000 people were killed in this attack. That’s not to mention the thousands that were not killed, but left with injuries for the rest of their life, disabilities they would later die from or suffer with. For example, when the twin towers were destroyed, the debris left over caused plenty of problems for the first responders or those who lived anywhere near the towers. “Those exposed to WTC-related dust were more likely to develop respiratory symptoms, sinus problems, asthma or lung problems. One in 10 Registry enrollees developed new-onset asthma within six years of 9/11, three times the national rate. New cases were highest during the first 16 months after 9/11”. (NYC resources.) We like to believe that the people affected by this tragedy were given the proper help but the promises made by our nation were not completed. We also have been affected psychologically, for every person five people at least one of them had Posttraumatic stress disorder, even if they were not in the building itself. We were left
Jo Ann Davis once said, “The terrorist attacks upon our country changed the way that we live forever and provided us with a cruel reminder that freedom and liberty have a price.” When a tragedy happens most people don’t think that it will ever happen to them until it actually does. I think that when major events happen in the United States it shocks Americans because they did not expect anything to happen. From a personal experience, I am just like most people when it comes to a tragedy; I freak out! Through out my seventeen years that I have been alive, three major events have happened that have affected me: 9/11, Barack Obama being elected as President, and the war in Afghanistan.
On September 11, 2015, the nation shared a moment of silence remembering the terrorists attack 14 years before. In lower Manhattan, families of those who were lost on this tragic event came together for a touchstone of the annual remembrance. The ceremony took place, for the first time, in the new World Trade Center, built less than a year ago. Roses were set at the memorial inside the letter of the names of those who were lost, and everyone remembered how the attacks changed the course their lives. The memorial was reserved for families in the morning, but was open to the public later. Last year, about 20,000 people visited the memorial to remember the events that occured September 11, 2001. Even the president, bowed his head in silence at
The Importance of the 9/11 Memorial Everyone remembers where they were when they first heard the news of the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. Since this traumatic day, many memorials have been made to honor the people who lost their lives. The memorial in New York City at Ground Zero has become a popular place for many people around the world to come visit. More than 21 million people have visited this memorial since its opening in 2011 (National September 11 Memorial & Museum). It especially allows for a place for family members to come and remember their loved ones that passed on this day. The National 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero provides the history of what happened on that horrific day through its location and design, but some view it as controversial.
The 911 memorial is a very thought-provoking place to visit, along with many other places in New York. It makes you want to think about what the people have been through. If they survived the attacks, or if they were sadly one of the many who died. Almost 10,000 people visit the site each day. I have never been the the memorial but I have read that people say it is “breathtaking”. If you ever visit New York, this should be on your to-do list.
The National September 11 Memorial is a place of remembrance honoring those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The creation of the memorial allow people to come together to reflect on what happened there, not alone but as a community in a public space where people gather and congregate. My experience there was over all a very moving one. I believe every American should visit the memorial and take time to remember the women, men and children that lost their lives at ground
In 1984, written by George Orwell, betrayal is a recurring theme throughout the whole book. Betrayal is defined as being false or disloyal to someone. Betrayal is widespread in the Oceania society through the government, known as Big Brother, and the characters featured in the novel. Two of the three main characters, O’Brien and Julia, betray the third character Winston in the novel. Winston is dedicated to his hate against the government but after Winston is betrayed by his “friend” and his lover, he ultimately betrays himself, and admits his love for Big Brother.
The news is on in the background while I'm eating dinner with my family. The conversation eventually lulls, and I begin to hear every word the journalist on the television utters. She's reporting on a far-off tragedy that I view as not particularly applicable to my life. I feel some kind of instinctual empathy for the party that is facing such adversity described on the news. I wonder what it's like to lose everything.
On restless nights I have the best memory. The memory of unadulterated betrayal. A betrayal that cuts deep like an oil drill. Slowly edging deeper and deeper into the soil. Cutting through the thickest layer, until at last, the drill is fully submerged in the ground. Then, the worst. It begins by sucking every ounce of oil from the well until, nothing remains. Just a barren cell, that once, had so much to offer. It's sort of like a memory I recall. Have you ever watched an incoming storm? I have. You see the signs, the darkness encroaching on all light, the wall of steady droplets plummeting to the ground. You see so many warning signs, yet, the darkness is inviting, almost sensational. It drags you in regardless of better judgment, and you
