September 11, 2001, Tuesday, people were doing their daily lives and some people were traveling by plane maybe for pleasure, to meet their family, or maybe for work. But workers and travelers were not the only ones who entered the plane. There were also 19 terrorists under Al-Qaeda led by Osama Bin Laden.
They soon hijacked the plane and killed stewardesses and pilots and ended up killing around thousands innocent peoples. The hijacked planes were eventually crashed into World Trade Center, the tower that symbolize America’s economic power. A hijacked plane also crashed into Pentagon, the headquarter of U.S military. Another plane was directed into the White House but protected by its passengers and fell into an empty field.
The attack on America was not an attack towards its economic power or even USA’s foreign policy. It was an attack towards the values of USA such as freedom of speech, human rights, and tolerance towards diversity.
If by one in thousands chances that America fell to the hand of terrorists group, then there would be no other safe place on earth where freedom was guaranteed. And the western civilization and its unique value in the name of democracy will slowly disperse.
The 9/11 attack was an attack toward freedom of speech, democracy, and all good things of western civilization values have given us.
