INTRODUCTORY ASSIGNMENT Not to know what took place before you were born is to remain forever a childCicero This quote is proven in many areas of our worlds history It shows that a lack of knowledge of the past can cause prejudice and intolerance in the present day This assignment was timed appropriately because the quote automatically reminded me of the fatal attacks in New York one year ago September 11 2002 The horrible events that occurred on that day one year ago could have been prevented if the barrier of ignorance toward the mistakes of the past had been overcome The vicious attacks by the Al-Qaeda were similar to the ones at Pearl Harbour on December 7 1941 If the people of the Al-Qaeda considered the damage and pain that the Japanese caused in 1941 maybe the outcome of last years attacks would have been different The outcome could have been more peaceful with less destruction - both physical and emotional The racial intolerance that came out of September 11th was also similar to the aftermath of Pearl Harbour After the attacks in 1941 any Japanese in Canada were forced to work in restricted areas Their homes and all possessions were taken away leaving them with nothing and working in unbearable conditions The Canadians were in fear that Japanese living in Canada could possibly be working as spies Their fear took over the reasonable thinking that goes along with making such a horrible accusation Out of pure fear the lives of the Japanese were made horrible because of the acts of a few The similar occurrences happened after 911 Places of worship were burned down people harassed others simply because or origin or religion The center of peoples lives was to trust no one and to hate those who belonged to the same ethnic group as the terrorists Simply unacceptable behavior rose to the surface Instead of empathizing with those survivors
