It the 9/11 attack 17 years ago.

It is safe to say that the turning point in modern society was the 9/11 attack 17 years ago. Since then, terrorist attacks and violent incidents have been far more prevalent than in the years before September 11, 2001. The events of that day cast the world into an age of fear and mistrust. During the time that the incident occurred, many artists rose up and sung about it, inspired by the tragedy to reassure people and brought the rise of nationalistic views again. Out of all the songs written, “Where Is the Love” by The Black Eyed Peas released in 2003, stood out and soared to the top of the charts and stayed for six weeks. However, unlike some other songs made in response to the attack, The Black Eyed Peas’ song addresses other issues rather than just American problems. “Where Is the Love” is about violence and terrorism in our own country, as well as in others, and the loss of innocence and love.
