CHANGING PERSPECTIVE 2 Changing Perspective Diverse situations can be interpreted by different individuals in many ways. Religion, culture, personal beliefs can influence a person’s perspective on what they are seeing. Additionally, an individual’s, personality or situation can influence how he or she interprets an event. For example, the September 11 th attacks were a series of coordinated suicidal attacks upon the United States by Al-Qaeda. On the morning of September 11 th , 2001, four commercial passenger airliners were hijacked by terrorist. The hijackers intentionally crashed these airliners into the Twin Towers killing everyone on board and many others in the buildings. Additionally, the hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon and a fourth plane crashed in a field of the State of Pennsylvania.
