matters, but the cause for which the violence is used that should concern us”. I think that this statement is very powerful in itself. When we can take a step back and look at the WHY of the terror attack, we can begin to look at different issues that our country itself might have too. Although I truly believe that the 9/11 attack on America was a legitimate act of war, I can see where the saying “It became necessary to destroy the town to save it”. We didn’t know that our security in our airports and in our country, was lacking heavily. We thought that since we had names of those who were going on and off planes and some metal detectors, that we should be good right? Wrong. Al Qaeda proved us so wrong, and it was such a hard lesson for America to learn. We hurt for so long after the attack, and there are still people who live in fear every day since then. Our trust and our security was violated, and we were not prepared. The unfathomable thought we had was who could be so evil to kill that many people, and to put our country in such distress? Was our country going back to war, and we are the battle grounds? So many men and women lost their lives that day in the terrorist attack, and we could never forgive the people of Al Qaeda.

    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.

    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.
