Transcript After Sert. 11 The 2001-2002 school year was filled with unprecedented events in the world which kept students and faculty alike riveted to news media, wondering what could happen next. It was a time of massive changes in the political, social, and economic state of the entire planet. Members of the UH community were stunned and saddened on September 11,2001, at the news that the United States had been attacked by Islamic extremists who hijacked jetliners and crashed them into both of the World Trade Center towers in New York, and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The Pentagon was heavily damaged by the attack, and both of the 110-story towers of the World Trade Center collapsed. The death of more than 3,000 Americans on that dark day in September rallied all Americans behind President George W. Bush as he vowed to rid the world of terrorism once and for all. Less than a month after the attacks, the U.S. Armed Forces were engaged in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. The attacks brought about a new sense of awareness in the United States. In an address to a joint session of Congress on September 20th, President Bush announced the creation of a new cabinet-level position called the Office of Homeland Security. This new position was responsible for coordinating the efforts of the FBI, CIA, and other law enforcement agencies to ensure the September 11th attacks would not be repeated. Afghanistan was not the only nation targetted in the war on terrorism. Other nations, including Iraq, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and The Philippines were given an ultimatum: eliminate terrorism within your borders, or the United States will do it for you. At the end of the spring semester, the rubble was still being cleared from the southern tip of Manhattan, although plans for future skyscrapers and a memorial at the site were already being made. This was a difficult year, but the challenges presented to the UH community and the nation as a whole only resulted in a people more united than ever before. Story by Matthew E. Caster.
