I was walking around the campus after my first class ended. I saw a crowd of students watching the breaking news. I asked one girl what was it all about, and she said “Some terrorists high jacked two airplanes filled with passengers, and crashed them at the world trade Buildings.” Then unpleasant images portrayed in my mind when I was watching the video clip of the tragedy. Some people were fearful, and some people don’t even know what to do. The majority of them wanted to retaliate. As reactions were shown to such destructive action, a thought came over my head. I thought to myself, “People kill people. What good dos it bring if obliterating numerous human beings was the only way to satisfy one’s revenge.
My day started really well until I heard the depressing and tormenting news. I cannot get that deadly picture out of my mind, and I probably will not ever. A lot of questions rose up in my head. For instance, how could someone do such a horrifying vitality amongst innocent people? How could killing human kind be a solution to what may be the problems of such action made by the U.S.
I can picture what we are going to encounter in the future if the United States decides to retaliate. The U.S. has the most powerful weaponry known. So, if U.S. retaliates then we possibly open the door to world war III. Unlike other wars, I predict that this is the war where there are no places to hide.
I believe that this is a test of our faith and intelligence. So, hopefully we will prove them that we will act and resolve the problem in the less destructive way. I believe that we should show them we are not selfish. We should not retaliate with no strong evidence rather than just blaming. The people have unanswered questions. It helps when we all talk it out and maybe we might answer some of the doubts and confusion.

It was a time of mutual distrust between the United States and the Soviet Union and their respective allies which begun after World War II. From Democracy in America’s author, Alexis de Tocqueville, “There are now two ...
“United we stand, divided we fall.” We need to do this all together. Destruction is evil but if we do not do anything then we will be casualties. I believe that we are divided because of our ignorance. It is a shame devoting and accepting yourself as a U.S. citizen by singing the national anthem, when we just diminish our own brothers and sisters. For our own keepsake, be brave and be a tower yourself that they once tried to destroyed. we should stand tall and brave, for this is a wake-up call.
