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. The National September 11 memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center has been established to honor the dead and respect the historic site of America’s tragic loss. The memorial was opened on September 11 2011. It consist of two huge pools with the nation’s largest human=made waterfalls located on the site between the two fallen towers.

Tuesday morning, September 11 of 2001, referred to as a day to remember, the twin towers were attacked by terrorists in a hijacked plane. Thousands of lives were lost and it was a day that brought great sorrow to America. George W. Bush, the president at that time, addressed his speech to America as a nation, giving them hope that the events that took place earlier that day would not shake them but that they would come back stronger. In this essay I will evaluate Bush’s formal 9/11 Address to the Nation and discuss the speaker’s appeals to pathos, logos and ethos to convey his message that America can stand tall as one.
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
Among one of the most famous symbols used in Ground Zero is the Ground Zero Cross. It represents the spiritual and physical healing this country desperately needed. After the attacks on 9-11, Fr. Brian Jordan OFM, a Roman Catholic Franciscan priest, said it was a “symbol of hope... [a] symbol of faith... [a] symbol of healing.”
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.
A bright, yellow sun smiled down from a picturesque blue sky, as a slight breeze made its way through the maze of skyscrapers in New York City on a cool Tuesday morning. Who could have guessed a morning as benevolent as this could be a source of such inexplicable cruelty? This particular day in September of 2001 would change the world forever. Without warning, an explosion rang out. A puff of black smoke bellowed upward from the north tower of the World Trade Centers. An unpleasant silence ensued. As the bystanders below tried to make sense of what they had just seen, a woman let out a bloodcurdling scream, then another did the same, and then another, until the sounds of the individuals blended together to create one indistinguishable cry of fear.
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
The 9/11 Memorial is one of the biggest man-made waterfalls in North America. The 9/11 looks like a square pool with another pool but smaller with water running down the walls, to make it a waterfall. There are two pools that look identical that are in the same spot where the towers were. The twin towers, and the memorial are in New York City. The walls of the pools are made out of black granite. Each pool is about an acre in size and holds up to 480,000 of recycled water. 9/11 Memorial is not only a beautiful pool itself but is also surrounded by trees.
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

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum was located in the lower Manhattan at Greenwich Street. It was already packed with people starting from the Cortlandt Street, where I got off from the subway.

"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America.
