Two ways it affected Texas

9/11 affected America in so many ways. So many things have changed since then. I remember my dad telling me how once it happened, it was like everyone's whole world just stopped. People who had family that were in the towers at that time dropped to their knees and froze. Then every part of america got 100 times more cautious about who they let in. Texas made sure they made a look out for anyone who was crossing the border. I also remember my dad saying from that point on parents held their children a little closer. Teachers never let their students out of sight. and for a long time everyone stayed clear of any events that took place outside of their home. Even the people all the way in Texas.

Two reasons i chose this event

The first reason i chose this event was because i wanted to know more about what all happened that day. The second reason i chose this event was because i've always thought that it was amazing how one minute you can go from a normal day, to barley being able to breath from the shock of what had just happened.
