Short Comment: US Terrorism

As a citizen of New York, this World Trade Center incident has been quite an experience for my family. Being miles away from the Twin Towers , I was able to type up a report as the incidents occurred.

It was obvious that this was a well planned attack, and it showed the weakness of security the United States had within its borders, compared to its strong security against outside attacks.

There was also another obvious weak point which became apparent during this incident; the internet. While information and photos of the occurrences were released in major news sites in a matter of minutes, none of them could handle the capacity of viewers. Both are subjects which will definitely become focus of adjustments in the near future.

A last note to everyone. Do not let terrorism shake you.

You must shake terrorism.
