The author reflects on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S. She thinks that terrorist attacks to the U.S. could not have been possible because other countries do not have the power or the weapons to attack the U.S. so intensely. She points out that most U.S. citizens take for granted their luxuries and freedoms. She has learned that individuals should never forget to be thankful for everything because they never know when it will be gone.
