Another Day In History Essay

939 words - 4 pages

I remember the morning of September 11, 2001. I was a sophomore in high school. My first class of the day was body development, and since the gym did not have any TV's, I had no idea what had happened until I walked into my second period class. I looked up at the TV as I walked into the room, and the first thing that I saw were the words "America Attacked". I thought that it was a joke or even a movie that someone had brought from home.All day during my classes, we either discussed the attack, or watched it on the news.

The last time that I remember seeing a donation box for the tsunamis was in May or maybe even April of last year (2005). Don't these people still need our help? Did everyone already rebuild their homes, and are already living happy little lives again? Many times, we lose interest in an event if it is no longer on TV. Have you seen anything about September 11th, the hurricanes, or the tsunamis lately? It is as if we personally were not affected, or the TV is not broadcasting about the event anymore. Who cares now?In the age that we live in, television is, for most people, the main source of information received. Since the primary purpose for TV is to...
