9-11 As our classroom sat and watched the horrifying video of 9-11, I never fully grasped that day into detail until seeing the actual footage. People screaming, running, shouting for their loved ones. I can’t even image what was going through those bystanders’ minds. Watching thousands of people being burned every second, and hundreds making the decision to jump to their deaths. So many questions with no answers were asked that day the twin towers burned to ashes.
Response to 9/11 The Event On 11th September 2001, four planes were hijacked by Al-Qaeda. One of the planes flew into the North Tower of the World Trade Centre in New York City. 20 minutes after this horrible event, with camera crews sending pictures all over the world, a second plane crashed into the South Tower. Both Towers collapsed, killing 2,752 people. This number includes the innocent people on the planes, firemen, policemen and medical staff who had all gone to assist the crisis.
18 minutes after the crash as the news cameras broadcasted live images of what initially appeared to be a freak accident, a second Boeing 767–United Airlines Flight 175–appeared out of the sky and flew into the south tower of World Trade center near the 60th floor . The collision caused a massive explosion that showered burning debris over surrounding buildings and the streets below. It was now clear that America was under attack. At around 10.00 a.m. the south tower of the World trade center collapsed and at 10:30 the north tower collapsed killing close to 3000 people including 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 New York City police officers and 37 Port Authority police officers who were struggling to complete an evacuation of the buildings and save the office workers trapped on higher floors. Only six people in the World Trade Center towers at the time of their collapse survived.
The 9.11 attacks were such catastrophic disasters that the terrifying images still cast a dark shadow of grief and terror upon the world even after 10 years. The attacks were well planned out, from the selection of method of attacks to the target buildings. The plan was plotted with high level of intelligence, but it was brought into effect by the evils and caused a nightmare for the world. First was the date. 911 has been the emergency telephone number since 1968.
Approximately 3,000 lives were sadly lost during this horrible attack. Not only did the people on the planes die, there also was many firemen & police men terribly lost. During the attack many people volunteered to help save some lives & lost theirs instead. Innocent children were brutally murdered & punished for a stupid war. Those people paid the price for other's crimes.
| 1 in 5 people lost their jobs because many buildings were destroyed, Haiti’s large industry clothing was one of the worst affected, and were a lot of people lost their jobs. | 250,000 homes, 30,000 other building were either destroyed or badly damaged this included the presidents palace and around 60% of the government buildings. | Because of the large number of deaths the hospitals reached their capacity and bodies had to be piled up out on the streets. | Transport and communication links were badly damaged and destroyed, things like bridges. | The amount of bodies out on the street caused a lot of diseases to spread, diseases like, cholera.
Just remember no one said this was going to be easy, it’s not something that can be picked up quickly; it requires the balance of fun, cleverness, and skills. It’s always nerve-racking being a “first time” sitter, maybe you just haven’t had enough practice with your younger siblings or the idea of being responsible for someone else’s kids is overwhelming. Have no fear! Babysitting should be fun not scary; the only people you need to make a good impression on are the parents. They are looking for a straight edged, fun and responsible kid.
So having tour license and driving would completely eliminate that. Having your license and driving young will only make you a more experienced driver; leading to fewer accidents. They will have a way to and from school and if you’re a parent that takes the kids to school and works early, that’s a very big deal. That would help not only your kids, but you as well. But we can all see some good reasons why kids should wait.
In the article Smart but Silent, Thomas Sowell states a very common problem that happens among parents with children that show no progress in speaking and communication at the age that they are supposed to. He gives example of very smart and famous people who also started to talk at very late like professor Stephen Camarata, Albert Einstein, Edward Teller, professor Richard Feynman. He argues that children start to talk at the older age does not always mean that they have mental problems. This can mean both the extremes, either the children are mentally retarded or outstanding smart. He says that most of those children who have problems in speaking have at least some relatives in their family that possessed intellectual minds.
The secondary effects include the fires that broke out all over the city of Kobe, the congestion and chaos on the roads, the closure of businesses and the problem of homelessness. Many more people died in the fires that followed the earthquake. Problems were made worse by the large number of aftershocks (over 1,300). Many of the older, wooden houses completely collapsed. Fire, triggered by broken gas pipes and sparks from severed electrical cables, caused a huge amount of damage, destroying at least 7,500 wooden homes.
