Question #7

Although the world overall has implemented significantly more security measures since September 11, 2001, and everyone and everything is monitored much closer, I don't necessarily think the world is more secure than it was before Sept. 11. There are many more threats and the never-ending problem of terrorism and terrorist threats. Before September 11, there was terrorism and threats, yet they weren't necessarily as imminent because there wasn't cause for fear. The world was a little more peaceful because there wasn't a declared War on Terror, and people were just going about their everyday lives. I think that physically, our country is more secure because it is more prepared for possible attacks than it was prior to Sept. 11. However, I think that a lot of people, myself included, feel less secure because we now know what terrorists are capable of, and previously we had been more oblivious, just going about our everyday lives.
