"From Russia With Love":--- A Memorial to 9-11-01


Published on

The world-wide struggle against terrorism began with the tragedy of 9-11-01 when al-Qaida, led by its leader, Osama bin Laden, hyjacked three domestic flights in the United States and crashed two of them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in NY City and the other into the Pentagon in Washington, DC. This is a review of the responses made, beginning with the 'Teardrop Memorial' given by the people of Russia and so symbolic of the world-wide struggle with terrorism, and ending with what two Presidents of the United States have done about it.

  • To gaby1685:---

    First let me say that terrorism is everywhere and we must be ever vigilant to protect this nation, and indeed the entire world, from it. So we must never forget. Second, Julia Ward Howe wrote her poem, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, after visiting a Union Army camp in 1861. Her poem has become perhaps the best-known of all Civil War songs of the Union Army--- and so it has since become our most well-loved American patriotic anthem. So my presentation here is intended to be uniquely American, as we lead the world in this war against terrorism everywhere.
