2,985 innocent people died on that beautiful September day.
For the action of bitter men their people became prey.
Harassed, attacked, and abused
Their ego was bruised.
Their heart grew into a volcano,
Pouring out layers of hate and scorn.
Their tempers flared more than forest fires.
Malevolence bubbling within them created malignant desires.
They united with their Afghan brothers,
Striking terror into others.

I got inspired to write this article by many movies showing how Muslims were discriminated after 9/11 and that caused them to join terrorist organizations.
