Yesterday, September 11, 2016, marked the 15 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York City. On the assignments page, http://www.mrdickson.net/assignments.html, or at the bottom of this blog are a few articles about 9/11. For your response to this blog, please answer the following questions: How have the events of 9/11 and its aftermath shaped what it means to be an American? How have the events of 9/11 impacted your life or your family unit? Consider the actions the government has taken after these events, how it changed people's lives and how you think of yourself living in a post-9/11 America. What more can we do to honor the fallen? Or should we do more?
