Reel History Final
The most interesting part of class was the 9-11 section. It was very powerful compared to the other units we studied. It also showed what led up to America being what it is today and how the terrorists went about that.
The least interesting part of class was the Cold War. I thought that the situation was pointless. The idea of one mistake creating a nuclear war is ridiculous.
The Mordern America time period has had a profound effect on the everyday lives of many generations. What America has survived during that time is impressive. The country faced many large obstacles such as: the Cold War, Civil Rights, and terroristic attacks. Each of these main obstacles have had a lasting effect on what America is today. As a country, we have become more patriotic, more careful, more united.
My thinking has been changed because I never realized how difficult the past 60 years have been. I never knew details about the extremity of the Cold War or the hardships for citizens throughout the 60's. It has made me appreciate how easy I have it today.
