There are countless times in life where I have found myself asking my parents for advice on what to do in certain situations. They have always helped me out and led me to the right decision along the way. I never thought that I would be put into a situation, at just 18 years old, in which I wasn’t able to turn to them in person for help, and the only way I could contact them was through a phone call. The night of June 11, 2015 was the night I learned a very important lesson. I learned that all of my actions have consequences whether they be good, or in this certain situation, bad.
It was a hot summer night in South Carolina and all of my friends and I were getting ready to go to a Waka Flocka Flame concert at the House of Blues. We had all bought our tickets at the beginning of the week because we thought it would be a great way to end our senior trip. With all of us piled into cars, went out to eat and then arrived at our friends’ house to hangout before. We were all having a great time and finally decided to leave the house to go to the concert. Once we pulled into the parking lot, I remembered that I had forgotten to use the restroom. I had to go so badly and the thought of waiting in line for an hour made it even harder to hold it in. I quickly searched the surroundings and sadly, I didn’t see any porta potty’s, there were no restaurants in close walking distance and the security guards at the door weren’t letting anyone through. At this point, I was on the verge of

Throughout American history and still today these conspiracy theories always come up about any major tragedies. Some have been true but until someone within our own government comes out and says that these theories are true, they will continue to be all make believe. 9/11 is one of the biggest attacks on American soil and it also has a lot of conspiracies surrounding it.

The 9/11 attacks opened the avenue for a scrutiny of the performance and ability of the intelligence community to detect any threats to the safety of the United States. The media, politicians, reformists and other interested parties would not comprehend how such an attack would happen without the knowledge of the intelligence community. However, it is important to consider the fact that the attack was one of its kind and could not be approached with the resources and expertise used in other initiative such as the cold war. Therefore, the need to restructure the intelligence community arose from the view that it was still operating in the mindset and spirit of the cold war even in the modern era that had seen a revolutionary change of warfare

America has faced so many tragedies in its time that have helped shaped who we are today as a country. A few of examples are The Holocaust, The Black Plague, World War One, World War Two, The Slave Trade and Sandy Hook Shooting. Many other major events have occurred in the United States. All of our major events have somehow brought us together to be united again after the tragedy. I think a major event that has shown that tragedy bring Americans together is the 9/11 attacks. They were definitely hard on America, but the end we all became more connected because of it.
The tragic events of 9/11, have drastically added to the myriad of recognized risk types and threats as well as the security recommended and required to counter those threats. The Security Manager must be aware of current threat trends, as well as mitigation strategies for the risks identified by the stakeholders. The mitigation strategies vary depending on the type of asset, location, threats and level of risk. These risks can include the spectrum of natural events and disasters, human-caused events as well as the secondary events spawned by primary events. This paper will examine special event security, its purpose, and when such security is recommended.

The setting was september 11th 2001 therefore the name 9/11, but besides that it was the world trade centers of New York where two planes crashed into it resulting a little bit under 3,000 casualties which killed police officers, firefighters and civilians. The new media sites I use were around at the time of the terrorist attack of the twin towers and pentagon in 2001.

Of particular interest was the association of various racial groups, especially those from the Muslim community with terrorism. Therefore, security agencies invested in isolating these racial groups as suspects of terrorism due to their associated connection with terrorism. However, this racial profiling cannot be justified as a counterterrorism measure since it is a flawed line of reasoning. For instance, it is not always the case that some racial groups are always responsible for terrorism. In fact, the 9/11 events would not have been possible without collaborators inside the United States who are not necessarily
On the aftermath of the 9/11 Terror attacks by Al-Qaeda, The US declares "total war on the evil forces" and invades Afghanistan, but Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda remain elusive and undefeated.

Within this pretext the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein enters into the equation as the "Axis of Evil" instead of the real enemy - Al Qaeda, and is announced as the main Military target by the US government.
