How 9/11 and The Patriot Act affected America What happened on September 11, 2001, will never be forgotten and is now considered one of the worst terrorism tragedies in American history. Consequently, it had made Americans grow closer together in the wake of the tragedy. Ever since the beginning, America has faced many significant changes, but ever since the atrocity of 9/11, America has made many changes that made an impact to most Americans. For instance, the events of 9/11 may have had a greater impact on our economy, but it also affected the lives of ordinary Americans. In this paper we will examine the impact of 9/11 on Americans and the U.S. economy and why the U.S. responded to the terrorism by enacting the USA Patriot act to “protect” America, which had become a big controversial issue to Americans.
Can you imagine how that would feel? It's was truly a devastating day for thousands out there. As I've said above, 9-11 was truly a devastating day for thousands of people & troops out there. It made an impact on many people's lives. It changed everything in the United States, from buisnesses to local markets.
Event Analysis Can terrorist attacks impact foreign policies? Terrorist attacks such as the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States became a revolutionary shift in how the world collectively viewed ways to fight against terrorism on the of international politics level.

Due to the September 11 attacks, America has changed for the worse. The everyday, average American life is now plagued by fear, animosity, segregation, increased dependency of social assimilation, and increased Governmental manipulation. Ever heard of the expression: “Too much of a good thing can prove just as bad”? Well, sadly enough, this saying couldn’t be anymore true! After the great tragedy of 9/11¾as I already tried to explain¾an
People around the world are and have been for many years stereotyping 1/5 of the world’s population. What is worse is that these misconceptions have caused many people to have a completely altered, bias, and untrue perception of the Arab Muslim civilization. There are several contributing factors associated with these totally obscure, untrue fallacies including media biases, religious ethnocentrism, and the theory of geographic isolation. After a string of incidents took place around the world many peoples perception of the ‘Arab world’ was changed, and ultimately skewed. Moreover, the media contributed to, and continues to play a large role in the stereotyping of the Arab Muslim civilization.
The images that were broadcasted all over America did not please the public and before long riots and protests were being held in the streets to end the war. This was because hundreds of American soldiers had died in a war they thought was coming to an end. The Tet Offensive proved otherwise and caused a major disagreement between the public and the American government. Many people believe that this almost forced the government to end the war because without the moral support from their own country there would be no chance in another. On the other hand, the Americans actually won the fight and in doing so managed to kill thousands of Vietcong’s, unmasked Vietcong’s, which they had not been able to do very well until this point.

The events of September 11th 2001 shocked the world, two hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York. The world’s news reported on the crashes the first was a shock the second unfurled live on air witnessed by millions around the world. The events of this day were not only tragic but had a major impact on how people looked at their lives, the re-evaluated how they lived, how they travelled even culturally life changed. As a result of people’s changing attitudes freedom of speech, censorship, music and even the way news is reported has changed. Vocabulary changed too “terrorism” “bomb” and “terror attacks” were terms used regularly and became a social norm with “war” being added to the list when Iraq was invaded.
Historical Enquiry Assignment. “Life during the Blitz was terrible in Britain during World War II” Does the evidence support this view? “Life was terrible during the Blitz during World War II”. I have chosen this topic because it is a big topic that affected a lot of people, young and old, in Britain and in other countries as well. It also links to other parts of World War II like evacuation because the people got evacuated due to the risk of bombing and rationing because in some circumstances roads and railways were blocked by debris and bombing, so materials and food couldn’t get through.
All this demonstrates how sinister1 terrorism is in American society. This paper will explain background data on anarchy/terrorism, case studies including the Oklahoma bombing, and the government’s reaction toward terrorism. A number of terrorist attacks in the 1990s have brought the fear to the public, giving rise to vulnerability2 between many Americans. Most terrorist incidents in the United States have been bombing attacks, involving detonated and undetonated explosive devices, tear gas and pipe and fire bombs. The effects of terrorism can cause loss of life and injuries to property damage and disruptions in services such as electricity, water supply, public transportation and communications.
