English Speech: Terrorism

Good (morning/afternoon) and welcome to my speech. Today I would like
to enlighten you with a subject that I feel strongly about. That
subject is terrorism and what it has done to the world. My personal
opinion is that terrorism is something that is causing havoc in this
place called earth and it should stopped before it gets out of our
hands.

The word terrorism in the English dictionary means "violent action for
political purposes." This is the proper definition but my definition

the past year and a half. Who could forget those dreadful pictures of
September 11th? This was the day when the twin towers collapsed and
claimed the lives of thousands of people. These events were acts of
terrorism. They were carried out by probably America's most wanted
Osama Bin Laden. He thinks that he is some sort of messenger from God
and God is telling him to do these acts.

Another tragedy that occurred due to terrorism is that of what
happened in Bali. This act of terrorism was a different sort. This was
a car bomb. Just before midnight on Saturday, Oct. 12, as people from
across the globe danced at the Sari, a popular nightclub on the
Indonesian resort island of Bali, a car parked outside-and packed with
explosives-blew up.

The most recent form of terrorism was when 2 terrorists entered a
Hindu place of worship and with ease killed 33 innocent victims and
injuring many more. This was the most hurtful act of terrorism for me
as this Hindu place of worship was where I have prayed before and it
was my religious building that got attacked. Fortunately, these 2
terrorists were brought to justice and killed.

Due to the acts of terrorism security has been tightened all over the
world but yet terrorists find ways of breaking...
