"On September 11, four U.S. planes hijacked by terrorists crashed in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania killing more than 3,000 people in a matter of hours." This headline marked the beginning of a traumatic era in which terrorism invaded the daily lives of millions of people in the United States as well as the rest of the world. The enhanced security that took place afterwards caused serious delays on several borders and airports worldwide, which created a substantial disruption of industries that highly rely on travel and international trade.
