Cruelty Done to the U.S.

The Victims of 9/11

What was 9/11?

September 11, 2001, 8:45 am was a tragic that put fear in the United States. A group called Al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown in the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. A third plane hit the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and the forth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania (History.com-9/11attacks). Over 3,00 people were killed during the the attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. More than 400 firefighters and police officers were killed also.

Why the attack?

The Al-Qaeda group, led by Osama bin Laden did not like how things were dine in the United States. Al-Qaeda practices an extreme version of the religion of Islam. The group is intensely opposed to the United States and other democratic nations (scholastic.com).

Relating to the Crucible

The 9/11 relates to the Crucible because the 9/11 strikes fear into people because of Al-Qaeda. The strikes fear because of the false accusations of witchcraft resulting to people dying. Fear in The Crucible made others put the blame on innocent people of Salem as we see in the Crucible: " "I saw Goody Hawkins with the Devil... I saw Goody Booth with the Devil" (Miller pg. 1048). This quote is showing how in the Crucible, the accusations if witchcraft started to occur. The sum of that, strikes fear into people which also happens in 9/11.

After the 9/11

The future of after 9/11 is good and bad. It is good of course because the 9/11 attack helped improve better security in airports. Also technology overall has improved because of of the attack. It is bad because people in the United States has lost trust on Muslims. That is where racism jumps in.
