Pasadena, CA – Airplane accidents are especially dangerous because jet fuel is highly flammable under crash conditions. On impact, jet fuel is dispersed in the air as a fine mist, which triggers a sequence of events that can lead to a fire engulfing an entire plane.

Clarksville, TN – Jeffrey Alexander defines collective trauma as what occurs when members of a group have been subjected to a horrendous experience that forever marks and changes their identity (Streesland, 2005). The events of September 11th, 2001 have forever altered the American identity.

Today, an 11-year old child growing up in the United States has no idea what it is like to live in a country that is not at war.
