Creating An Outstanding Research Paper About 911
In general, research papers are focused on easy topics that are interesting for students. However, sometimes you can be required to write about major events that influenced your society. The terrorist attack that happened on 9/11 will be remembered forever as the most bloody event in the history of America. It killed many people and it traumatized many others for life. Your research paper on this theme needs to be written with care and sensitivity. Pay attention to these ideas:
- Do not involve religion. The terrorist were Muslims and for this reason, Muslims are still discriminated in America. In the years following the attack, people would panic only when they saw a man with a long beard. This passed, but there are still many racist conceptions. Try to avoid discussing about this. Religion can not be blamed for the actions of some individuals.
- What were the causes of the attack? USA is involved in the Middle East for years now and apparently, this is what caused this tragedy. Extremists thought that by hurting Americans they will make justice, and they will keep the American soldiers away from their land. You can write a little bit about the external influence of USA and how can this affect the population.
- Describe the attack. Try to use sensitive words and to be as compassionate as possible. Don’t forget that many people died back then, so it’s not appropriate to be cold or insensitive. You can also tell your classmates what happened before the attack; how did the terrorists hijack the airplanes? How many airplanes crashed in USA in that day? Most of your colleagues will know only about those two that hit the World Trade Center buildings, but actually four airplanes crashed.
- Try to find out how people felt. You can find on the internet many confessions of survivors or people who happened to be around. You can introduce them in your research paper, so your colleagues can see the real impact of the attacks. It’s better to use quotes instead of simple sentences; you would not want to give a wrong meaning to what someone said.
- Al-Qaeda. This terrorist organization claimed to be the author of the attacks. You can tell your colleagues more about them, how was the organization formed and who was the leader. There is plenty of information about this subject on the Internet.
