Alycia Essig WTNG 102.35 28 November 2006 Analysis of A Nation’s Fear of Flying Anna Quindlen, in her essay A Nation’s Fear of Flying, asserts that since the terror attacks of 9/11 “the great shock to the American system is realizing that no fortress is inviolate, no wall tall enough and no place really safe” (100). Quindlen supports this idea by presenting examples like, “Our children’s schools now send home instructions for cataclysm-families that will shelter students, ways that parents can be in touch” (l00) and using personal experiences such as feeling uncomfortable seeing the twin towers in a movie, calling them “ghosts on celluloid” (100). Her purpose is to make Americans realize they are not safe from terror attacks in order to help them be more prepared and informed. Quindlen presents her argument to the readers of Newsweek , who are generally the younger adults of America. Her argument is convincing because she uses emotional evidence, including personal experience, to support her claim.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
