The terrorists planned to change America. They succeeded, because never in my whole life have I ever seen so much American pride. After the attacks I was very proud to hang the American flag outside of my house. To say the pledge of alligence is something that shouldn’t be taken granted of. It made me proud to be in a nation that can have something so great happen, and just pick itself back up. I think that we are all proud to be Americans, to live in such a great nation. I cherish being an American much more now, then I ever thought possible.
