The disaster was deliberately focused on the major places in the U.S. This attack poses a new question, "When will the next attack come?" This ongoing fear is no way to live. It has forever scarred the years to come, knowing that there is a group out there whose intention is to inflict harm and pain on the United States.
Next, the attack also focused innocent citizens. Accounting for almost 6000 injured and over 3000 dead, many families were left grieving for their lost ones' unfortunate fate. These numbers also include the many firefighters and policemen who died as heroes trying to save the people inside the buildings.
The horrific disaster also resulted in the U.S's new foreign policy. The fear surrounding terrorists led America to become more careful and stricter. That being said, there was also less trust as well. This unfortunately created an unfair stigma and issues between Muslims and non-Muslims.
Finally, the 9/11 event triggered President George W. Bush to declare the first "War on Terror." This term refers to the Bush's call to mobilize global military and political organizations in a struggle against terrorist organizations responsible and the organizations supporting them. This unfortunately led to more blood spilt by U.S men and women, but on foreign ground.
