Most Americans remember the hardship from the events that took place on September 11, 2001. It was a very hard time for many families; loved ones were passing or saying their last words over the phone. It was hard on more than just those people though. Through it, all heroes stepped-up and terrorists were overcome. Damage was done, but memorials were built to remember the good, not the bad. September 11, 2001, is a day that terrorists tried to bring America to its knees; however, heroes arose to act as true patriots to save hundreds of lives including Flight 93 and the Pentagon.
In 2001 on September 11, there were attacks that were made at the two world trade centers in New York City. These attacks led to things America has never seen before. The attacks of September 11, 2011 forever change security in the united states as well the American people’s thoughts of immigrants
The morning of 9/11 I wasn’t going to go to work because I had an allergy appointment,
"A plane just crashed right into one of the Twin Towers!" Someone yelled. People were screaming because they were on fire. Others were fleeing for their life, but all I could do was stare in awe at the smoking hole in one of the biggest towers in New York. September 11, 2001, one of the most devastating days for me, and for all of America.
September 11th 2001 there was a surprise attack on the United States by terrorists. The terrorists allegedly hijacked four airplanes. One was meant for the White House, one was meant for the Pentagon and the other two were meant for the twin tower which fell and many lives were lost. However some say it was not terrorists and that it was the United States government and that the government set a bomb and that they had several motives to do this.
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 were either groups sponsored by governments or militants trying to create governments (i.e. Palestine Liberation Organization). As a result, the tactics used for fighting terrorism were centralized mostly in the Middle East and were restricted to
September 11, 2001 is the day four planes were hijacked and three crashed into important buildings, while the last crashed into a field. And today all the grief, devastation, great sacrifice, and total annihilation will be remembered throughout time as 9/11. To tell you everything would take forever, so instead I will tell you how my mother saw it. It was on a day we all know as 9/11, there was a house on Quimby Way in Sacramento, California. And in this house, my mother was going throughout her day as usual, which most likely involved laundry, dishes, and watching two children by the name of Alanna and Christopher, when she saw the news. “Is this really happening? This can’t be true! Was it an accident? Oh my god, both towers! What would ever make someone do that? This is terrible, why is it even happening in the first place? Why? Why?
You’re a fireman ready at any moment for the walls to collapse, you don’t know when but what matters is the 2 men you are carrying on your back to safety. You have lost all communication but know that you are in a life and death situation, you think of your family and all the people who are counting on you to stay alive. On September 11th, 2001 terrorism struck America. This event became a nationally recognized day and remembered by all Americans. Many people and even children can tell you exactly where they were when the tragedy occurred. On this day many men and women stepped up and became heroes. September 11th, 2001 was a devastating and tragic event in the history of the United States of America by resolving all the affects America became much stronger and turned fire fighters into American heroes and left a legacy that is to be remembered for generations to come.

9/11 was one of the most important events that has ever taken place in American history. Almost everybody’s lives were affected one way or another because of the terrorists attacks that took place that day. After the news got around that the first plane had hit one of the towers, there were thoughts going around that it was only an accident. A person that was working within the North Tower said “I just assumed it was a terrible accident.” Some people that were lucky enough to escape the towers have also been interviewed. The survivors that have been interviewed have told stories that the people in the towers were not panicking, instead they did their best to stay calm because they knew it would help them find a way out. I have decided to interview my mom, Angie Grant, about her thoughts and feelings on the events of 9/11.
Not many events during my lifetime are as memorable as September 11, 2001. Al Qaeda attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon to spread fear for the terrorist group. This act of terrorism is why or one of the major causes for the Afghanistan war. September 11, 2001 will leave scars on people’s memories that they will never forget.

It was just a normal Tuesday morning on September 11, 2001 and my brother and I could have never guessed what would happen that day that would change the world forever. The city of New York was just waking up and the men and women were making their way to their various jobs. South tower, my brother, and I held most of those people in our strong, glorious, and tall structures. They started to settle in and we stood there proud and glorious for all to see in New York City.
As most Americans know, for over 10 years already, we have been in a war with Afghanistan due to the World Trade Center attack on 9/11. The war had a stated goal to dismantle the Taliban and a terrorist organization called “Al-Qaeda,” as well as to end Al-Qaeda’s use of Afghanistan as their base for making facilities such as terrorist training camps and secretive underground bases. The War on Terror began on October 7th, 2001, as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks where nearly 3,000 innocent American citizens lost their lives. Many people do believe that the terrorist attack was a “false flag” operation on America by the Elite who run the country with a goal to run oil pipelines from the Caspian Sea through Afghanistan all the way to
February twenty-third 2010 was just a regular ordinary day. I was on my way to class on this cold February afternoon, when my phone rung. It was my cousin on the other end telling me to call my mom. I could not figure out what was wrong, so I quickly said okay and I hung up and called my mom. When my mom answered the phone I told her the message but I said I do not know what is wrong. My mom was at work and could not call right away, so I took the effort to call my cousin back to see what was going on. She told me that our uncle was in the hospital and that it did not look good. Starting to tear up I pull over in a fast food restaurant parking lot to listen to more to what my cousin had to say. She then tells me to tell my mom to get to
