Reflection about 9/11
In what way(s) did growing up in the aftermath of September 11th, 2001 effect the culture of the world in which you live?
The things that happened back in September 11th, 13 years ago, changed the world that we live in so many ways. Not only started a war between USA and Al-Qaeda, it opened the doors to a world that us, as kids/teenagers, would have never seen or even knew that existed. Wars seemed like things that only happened in the past or in movies, but now we grew up seeing the news, the headlines, and the stories of the horrific events that have been happening since 2001 and now we see them as normal issues in our world, our perspective about the wars, social and political tragedies are way too normal now.
This film made me think about how twisted the mind of some people is, how they can agree to destroy the life of many innocent people, either way for the Al-Qaeda group and for the “supposedly” attack of the Americans to the Muslim people that Osama Bin Laden once claimed. It also got me thinking that the security of the airports back in those days were highly poor, maybe they trusted more or they didn’t even wonder that someone would dare to hijacked a flight, but of course it changed after all this tragedies, now you can’t even travel with liquids that are more than 3 oz. and obviously you can’t travel with knives anymore.
This film made me feel so disturbed and uncomfortable, seeing what it actually happened in those towers, the Pentagon, how people were running for their lives, how they were struggling to get out and survive the hell that they lived in, and the death of all the people that were in those planes. It made appreciate that life can be taking away from us in just the matter of 1 second, we should appreciate all the things that we have no matter what and always demonstrate the love that you have towards your family, never skipping a day telling that you love them.
