The people of America were shocked by the fact that our security didn’t protect us the way they swore by oath they would. The only feeling in America’s heart was astonishment; some people had fear but most were just in shock. We couldn’t grasp the fact that they took our citizens and killed other people with them. As a whole, the American people were more separated than ever because we were bleeding.
The security of our nation was severely heightened in the few months after September. Our airline security made it much harder to get on the plane with anything capable of taking it over, rules such as; no containers over 3 ounces of liquids can be brought, knives, and many other things are banned just because of this one day, one incident. One day makes it a hassle to fly on planes, caused new technology to be researched for heightened security. One day can mess up everything.
This terror attack was the first on American soil, it wasn’t a bomb, and it was a plane of our own. That is the way this is vastly different then every other attack ever on American territory. The Al Qaeda network was like nothing we had ever faced before but now we are prepared for any card they are willing to throw at us. America has greatly strengthened every aspect of our defense to keep out any terrorist attack before it even has a chance to start.
The day of September 11, 2001...
