9/11 The Spirit Of Unity

By Zoe A Blue

What Is 9/11

The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group Al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Attack type: Aircraft hijacking, Suicide attack, Mass murder

What Happened After 9/11

Oct. 2, 2002, that helped Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama become a U.S. senator and then president? And who on the Sunday after 9/11 knew that one of hundreds of thousands of sermons preached that day would nearly derail Obama's presidential campaign six years later?

Also marked on the calendar are the days when Pat Tillman, NFL star, decides to go to war as a grunt, and when Kenneth Feinberg, Democrat, tries to become the Republican administration's man to determine the worth of a loss on 9/11. There is the first mission of a confederation of military vet bikers known as the Patriot Guard Riders, and the Iraq War's first roadside bomb.

On this calendar, a soon-to-be whistle-blower is a tell-them-nothing press spokeswoman. A plan to build an Islamic community center arouses no controversy, six months before the same plan generates an international ruckus.

9/11 Spirit

I think the 9/11 spirit happened because people would like to help people who had lost their family members in 9/11 and also because what the Islamic did was wrong so they decide to do good deeds.

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum will tribute to our country’s veterans during a special five-day Salute to Service from Saturday, November 7 through Wednesday, November 11. A series of events and special programs will be available on the memorial for veterans and their families, as well as the visiting public. Throughout our tribute, veterans will receive free museum admission. Veterans will also receive up to two 50 percent off museum tickets for family members during Military Family Appreciation on November 7 and November 8 every year.The memorial exhibition, In Memoriam, commemorates the lives of those who perished on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 and provides visitors with the opportunity to learn about the men, women and children who died. Visitors enter the exhibition along a corridor in which portrait photographs of the nearly 3,000 victims form a "Wall of Faces," communicating the scale of human loss.

Nearby, touchscreen tables allow visitors to discover additional information about each person, including photographs, images of objects and audio remembrances by family, friends and coworkers. Rotating selections of personal artifacts are also featured. An inner chamber presents profiles of individual victims in a dignified sequence through photographs, biographical information and audio recordings.
