September 11th 2001

The thing I remember most about Terrorist attacks of 2001 (I refuse to call it 9-11 as it cheapens everything else that has ever happened on a September 11th) and the aftermath is how focused people were that the terrorist wouldn't win. I felt like the only person in America that was focused on us and not them, after all those directly involved were all dead, and those that were responsible for planning it were already our enemy's.

Since the terrorist attacks of 2001 it seems to me we have became a nation of cowards. We have politicians saying don't vote Democrat because another attack might happen. Or for that matter don't vote Republican because of Iraq. We have let single events multiply themselves into life altering events, and that would be fine if those changes could prevent a major attack, but while some improvements have been made we are still wide open for an attack, and yet nobody has felt the need to kill us all.

We're to the point where it is normal to consider a traditional Muslim a bad person because they look like those that were involved in the attacks. We get offended because Muslims have a right to sue those that violate their freedoms. We find it OK to attack our president in the most scary possible ways. And yet actually trying to back up the kind of claims that the majority of Americans find accaptable is looked at as crazy. Either our president is doing what he thinks is right and reasonable, or we need to look into what he's doing thats wrong, but Americans are cowards and can not face the idea that Bush is a good president nor can the face the fact that he is a borderline evil man as the accaptable accusations against him would indicate.

Since September 11th 2001 we as Americans have changed, and not for the better. It is safe to say the terrorist did win, but more importantly we lost, and we did it to ourselves.
