What Was The Catastrophe That Occurred On September 11, 2001?

In the article, “Remembering 9/11,Twenty Years Later” (McGraw Hill), I read that fourteen members of al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jets on a Tuesday morning when Americans were just about their normal day. They then intentionally crashed two planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City causing the buildings to fall. The third plane crashed at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Overall, these attacks caused 3,000 deaths, and the Bush administration began the War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

How do you think everyone felt when they observed, first hand, the occurrence on September 11, 2001?x

I believe that 9/11 should be the most important day in American History overall because it became a well-known day to remember the catastrophic events that took place. I also believe that without the terrorist attack occurring, America wouldn’t be what it is now 20 years later so I think it was a good thing so that Americans would realize what negativity can bring into the aspect of many people’s minds but I do not encourage terrorist attacks in general. I really wished I was born during that time because I then would have a full understanding of why it creates this huge impact on many Americans. With this in mind, 9/11 should always be remembered throughout every corner of the world and in the future.
