On September 11th 2001 the world was eternally changed. The horrific events, which appeared at the World Trade Centers in New York, the Pentagon in Washington and on Flight 93, which smashed into in Pennsylvania, have eternally changed the way Americans outlook their safety. Every house in the U.S. tuned in to the report on TV, wireless, or Internet to glimpse how the world was being rotated in front of their eyes. These events dramatically verified that the United States, the greatest territory in the world, was no longer protected from outside risks.
The stock market crash of 1929, which commanded to the despondency, the Japanese strike on Pearl Harbor, and the terrorist attacks of September 11th were all unforeseen events that no one could have predicted but had such dramatic consequences that they can not ever be forgotten. All three events seem to be categorized together for a few simple reasons. To the average American citizen these horrendous events were unforeseen, but noted historians would beg to differ. They believe in such instances as Pearl Harbor, The stock market crash of 1929, and September 11th, that the government and many political figures were forewarned. If they had taken their admonitions more seriously and acted upon them, historians believe that they could have at least made the consequent effects minimal. There were several proceedings that should have elicited American retaliation. It is said that Bin laden himself declared war on America in 1996. In the early 90's, The World Trade Center was car bombed, and Osama Bin Laden was the primary suspect for this assault. Even after that incident no one saw Bin laden as a serious threat and didn't think his dangerous ways could jeopardize our countries well being as a whole.
After the attack of September 11th it seems the unification of the American people became so strong it's virtually indissoluble. Our previously fragile society became a link so strong we believe it can't be touched by the outside perils of the world. The rise in Nationalism came about in a wave of red white and blue colors. It seemed every face in America was painted with the stars and stripes of our grand old flag. Our countries banner was now the latest fashion; closets were overflowing with the celebrated colors of our patriotic nation. Every news station put American flags on their lapels, and waving red, white and blue graphics were put on most channels. Many well-known Hollywood figures and successful businesses put together charities benefiting the victims and families affected by September 11. September 11 mended our nations pride and restored our dignity. Such a strong sense of nationalism can easily be compared to that of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, when East and West Germany celebrated their reunion as one, after being isolated for so long.
Subsequent to September 11, the United States faced many abrupt transformations as far as pastimes, lifestyles, and entertainment ...
