On September 11, 2001 there was a major occurrence that changed New York City. It all started with four hijacked planes that took off at 8:45am on a Tuesday morning. As those planes took off, and were hijacked, they took down a major economic building, The World Trade Center. The Twin Towers were the key success to The World Trade Center complex, the North Tower stood at 1,268 feet and The South Tower stood at 1,362 feet high. The tallest buildings in New York City held 35,000 people each, along with 430 companies. This created an economic target, as each building represented economic power and freedom. The attack on the World Trade Center created an impact on the financial standing of America, a loss resulting in billions to the airline industry, increased spending due to domestic security and the constructing of a federal agency, Homeland Security. All of these were results of the tragic attack on September 11 on the US economy. The World Trade Center was a sign of freedom and economic power in America, there were many companies along with workers that suffered a tragic loss on this day making them lose their company along with workers as well. As the aftermath of September 11 progressed the US economy began to suffer as a result.
The story is about a boy, named Oskar. Who is trying to cope with the loss of his father, who died in the attacks on 9/11. He discovers a key in his father’s belongings and tries to find the matching lock.
The most obvious change sense 9/11 is U.S airport security and regulations. One of the biggest reasons why 9/11 was such a success for the Al-Qaeda group hijacking of the planes was 100% the airports unsuccsessful security. They were able to board the planes and go through metal detectors at the checkpoint. Thats why just a few short months after 9/11 occured the United States declared the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) is improving public safety while traveling through major transportation areas like airports. Many major airports have TSA, meanwhile some not so large airports have private agencies that are similar to TSA. Americans have had to undergo significant changes in their travel habits and this change seemed to be the
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. What really hit the towers? Where they commercial jet liners? How does a 747 leave that small of a hole in the Pentagon? These are some of the questions surrounding it. What it all comes down to though is what makes these theories so fascinating to Americans. What makes these so believable and to think that our own government would do this to us is just crazy, or is it?
9/11 plays a big role in American history. It commemorates a date for those affected by this traumatic event. Many can still remember the day, just as if it was yesterday – what they were doing and where they were. The vast majority of our sophomore class had not even been born, or old enough to recall this event. This date in American history unified us as a country.
•One of the historical day in the United State of America is 9/11 one of the horrific incidents. The time prior of 9/11 was unheard of in this era due to the lack of experience in terrorist organization in our country. Mostly, in the 80’s terrorist activity during this time oversea bombing and airline hijacking. The World Trade Center was bombs by the violent terrorist extremist that cause serious injuries and even deaths. The Oklahoma City bombing was the most deadly attacks during the 90’s on the United States soil. There was a lack of intelligence prior to the 9/11 for the government, first responders and law enforcement. The United States was unable to plan, implement and coordinate vital information and to organize the various agencies.
As we all remember and recognize 9/11 today, please remember that the day started just as many of our day's today will start.
Not only did 9/11 impact America physically, but it also took a huge toll psychologically. People responded to the terrorist attack with fear and started developing feelings of intolerance for immigrants, specifically immigrants who were or appeared to be from the Middle East. For example, people known as Sikhs, who
As we get older and more evidence is presented, the significance of 9/11 becomes more clear. In one moment, an entire nation was shook. The planes that crashed into the Pentagon, Pennsylvania, and the World Trade Centers where carefully planned by a group of terrorist. I coincide with you when you stated that it should have been a wake up call to America. Tons of events have happen before and after 9/11; however, America is still un-woke. Tragedy is suppose to bring a nation together but our tragedies seem to always divide and conquer us. I pray that America wakes up before it is to late.
The attack on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001, had negative health consequences beyond the staggering loss of life. The James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act, signed into law by President Obama in 2010, established the World Trade Center Health Program that ensured those affected by 9/11 received monitoring and treatment services for 9/11 related health problems up until 2011 and reopened the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001 to new applicants. The act was renewed in 2015 which included the reauthorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, and over 72,000 responders and survivors are allowed to get medical monitoring, treatment, and compensation for their injuries. However, while federally-funded health care and medical monitoring for injured and ill 9/11 responders and survivors has been made permenant, the compensation program will expire in 2020 even while expecting thousands more cancer cases from exposure to 9/11 toxins in the coming years. The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund has to be renewed to continue to honor the injured and ill responders, survivors and their families for their heroic act and how their health is being punished for it.

What I think is the most significant historical event that has happened during my lifetime is 9/11. Even though I was two years old at the time, it still took a giant toll on America as a whole with its sense of security and the affect it had on the economy. 9/11 was a series of 4 adroit terrorist attacks by Al Qaeda, an Islamic terrorist group, on the United States on September 11, 2001. The attack targeted symbolic United States landmarks such as the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In total, 2,996 people had died and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.

9/11 What event or day could change how the United States citizens go about their everyday activities? Life has not been the same after that fatal day in September of 2001. The day is known as 9/11. This attack may have knocked the United States down briefly, but it has caused us to stand stronger for the freedom that we cherish. You may expect terrorism to happen places like Pakistan, India, the Middle East or South American but not here on American soil. This is not the first time that the United States has been targeted for terrorism. The United States has been the target for terrorist attacks more than you know. 9/11 helps us to remember that the United States is vulnerable to attacks just like other countries. Could 9/11 have been prevented? Did government agencies share information freely? Some people think that if the different government agencies would have shared information instead of having barriers that this terrible event may not have happened.
