The attacks on 9/11 are still fresh in our memories. On September 11, 2001, almost 3,000 innocent people died as a result of four airplanes being hijacked and slamming into the Twin Towers in New York City.
Survivors and political figures like Hillary Clinton stated that the disaster was like hell on earth. Many movies and documentaries have been made and the pain from the victims has not faded away, even now, after 15 years later.
Rudy King is a 9/11 survivor who swore to herself to not visit the ground zero site again. She stated “the memories and the pain I saw while trying to escape was all I can remember every time someone asks me about that tragic day. I always ask myself, why me?, why I survived and others not?.It is a day that will haunt me for the rest of my life.”
A tragedy that once joined the nation and the political world now divides them. Clinton declared that it was a mistake to vote in favor for the Iraq War and asks for tolerance to avoid any more violence. Trump has stated that he will ban all Muslims from entering the United States if he becomes president. In addition, United States citizens are also divided whether to accept and avoid discrimination to Muslims or fear them.
In the end, it is important to remember the ones that are not here anymore and honor the ones who sacrificed themselves saving others. Now watch President Obama commemerate the 3,000 lives lost:
