A.M.Holmes' Music For Torching, Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy, and Tony Kushner's Angels in America The social progression of America in the 20th and 21st centuries has been arguably advantageous.

attacks on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001 (as referred to as September 11th, or 9/11).

Both horrific events have many similarities and many differences in regards to who carried out the attacks, what the objectives were for the attacks and the American response after these infamous dates occurred. In December 7, 1941, the nation of Japan audaciously
