The hijacking on Sep. 11, 2001 led to the most catastrophic event America has ever seen. The sabotage of the twin towers left America in despair.
After twenty years many Americans are still facing the effects of the bombing on 9/11. The world today will never be the same after this event but many Americans are trying.
The younger generation is called the children of 9/11, they have been taught about the events and how to honor our fallen.
With honoring our fallen, we strive to remember what happened the day of the attack. The survivors of this day faced the ruble and smoke of the world trade center, this left them with health and mental issues from the trauma.
First responders such as firemen, policemen, and paramedics all ingested the chemical toxins from the air. Leaving all responders and citizens with respiratory, lung, and heart conditions that gave serious health declines.
Since the fall of the twin towers were attacked, America has not been in the state of power in which they were before the towers fell.
Patrick Buchanan from the Columnists gave insight on how America has changed since the attack.
“Our country is a changed place from 2001. Gone are the unity, confidence, and resolution. “He said. “Looking back and looking ahead, the trend line is not good.”
This brings the question of where the current status of America is and how citizens have lived since the attack.
Civilians said their last goodbyes through the phone as the planes crashed into the trade centers, this left many families in despair.
After the attack and goodbyes, many Americans have been able to cope with losing family.
As citizens Americans have pushed and strived to never forget this faithful day. Now twenty years later, our world has changed yet we still will always live in fear of attack.
