The World Trade Center And The Pentagon

- True stories that get told so often that people mistakenly begin to mix up words eventually start to become a myth, not like a fairy tale myth but a myth no one really knows how it all started. That’s what 9/11 is. Everyone knows the basic outlines as to what happened on September 11, 2001, but no one is quite sure as to what really went on inside the four hijacked planes. With the help of cell phone contact from friends and relatives on the ground, the passengers figured out the hijackers did not want to negotiate but were rather on a suicide mission just like the ones that had crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon....   [tags: September 11 attacks, World Trade Center]

The World Trade Center

- September 11th, 2001 will forever be etched into American history as one of the worst terrorist attacks against the United States. To memorialize the victims that perished on this day, an official memorial was built in the footprints of the World Trade Centers (WTC). While the goal of this memorial was to be peaceful, some debates have arisen about the memorial. Some believe that they should have something different for the design and others dislike components of the winning design. Even with the many debates that surround this memorial, it is still a valuable piece of art to the public that provides a place for families and others to remember those who were killed on that day....   [tags: September 11 attacks, World Trade Center]

The World Trade Center ( Wtc )

- When September 11, 2001 comes into mind, many people only think about what happened on that day.

With this being said, a lot of people remained focused on the North and South towers, mainly because they were the main focus; but did you know, the World Trade Center (WTC), building number seven, burned for seven hours straight (history.com)....   [tags: September 11 attacks, World Trade Center, Al-Qaeda]

Terrorism And The World Trade Center

- Terrorism, as destructive and heart breaking as it is has helped the United States as a country because it has forced the United States to enhance security to better protect the people who reside here.

First, I discuss the war on terror generally and how terrorists can be found among any type of person....   [tags: September 11 attacks, Al-Qaeda, World Trade Center]

- The two primary non-human objects that I engage with at my field site are the north and south pools. These pools are about an acre in size and are built on the same footprint that the twin towers once stood.

At the same time, several questions were aroused by terrorist attack: Whether our safety is threatened. Whether we can completely eradicate terroristic organization.
