Opiniative Response To Essay Entitle: "9.11.01: The Skyscraper And The Airplane" By Adam Goodheart

354 words - 2 pages

"9.11.01: The Skyscraper and the Airplane" Adam Goodheart compares the attack on the Twin Towers to the tragedy of thefatal decent of the Titanic. He firmly questions the attack was just as foreseeable as theblind voyage of the Titanic the night it sank. Furthermore, he seems to believe it wasgaudiness or simply ignorance that made these events possible. The Titanic, yes ...view middle of the document...

However, the Twin Towers were intelligently and carefullycrafted to withstand almost anything. They could have withstood anything except murder.If Adam Goodheart were to accurately compared the two then history would not havebeen the same. History would have shown that 19 men boarded the Titanic with Tommyguns and murdered ever individual on the vessel. The event is never described in its truesense. The 9/11 tragedy was not an attack, not terrorism and by far not capsize.September 11th, was a mass murder, a slaughter, or a massacre.Goodheart boldly compares the towers to being meretriciously built bysaying,"...like a pair of middle fingers, raised against the hostile vastness of the AtlanticOcean." There was undeniably a lavish attribute to the Twin Towers creation but it wasnot meant to derogate other countries. The towers were meant to glorify our freedom, notto be envied by other countries. To prove my point, the statue of liberty rest right on theAtlantic Ocean whereas the Twin Towers did not. That is why we welcome others to joinus and be part of our country.
