In memory of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, each year in the United States we observe Patriot Day and the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
On September 10, 2012, President Obama issued a proclamation. The day was renamed Patriot Day and the National Day of Service and Remembrance
On September 11th, the American flag is to be flown at half-staff at American homes, the White House, and all United States government buildings, whether abroad or at home. Also, Americans are asked to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 A.M.(Eastern Daylight Time), because this is the time the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The president also strongly encourages Americans to volunteer for service opportunities that day.
Please share your thoughts and remembrances of that day by leaving a comment.
