It was the shock of a lifetime when we received draft notices. It wasn’t clear what was going to happen.

443 words - 2 pages intuition tells me, however, that the emotional pulse of the U.S. remains similar to that of September 10.When considering long-term changes in the United States, one might hypothesize that American politics and foreign policy will soon take a new turn. Evidence of governmental evolution is found in interventionist policies in Afghanistan, Iraq, and possibly North Korea. Perhaps the US will move into a more multi-lateralist position (though that doesn't now seem to be the case). Whatever the direct outcomes of 9/11, one can easily anticipate significant changes in the nature of American foreign policy.Will America recover? Yes. Will America ever be the same? In my opinion, the question is more affirmative than negative. The United States have always maintained an culture open and inviting to change and evolution, whether it be social, political, or economic. 9/11 has initiated further change, and America will respond accordingly.
