Patriot Day: Remembering Those Who Died in the September 11 Attacks

Saturday, September 11 is Patriot Day. (Not to be confused with Patriots’ Day, which commemorates the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War). Patriots Day honors the victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

In October and November the U.S. House of representatives passed Joint Resolution 71, which requires the President to designate September 11 of each year as Patriot Day. Flags at all government buildings around the world are to be flown at half-mast. Citizens are also asked to fly their flags at half-mast. The President also asks people to observe a moment of silence at 8:46 am Eastern time, the time when the first  plane hit the world trade center. Some churches will hold special services and prayer meetings.

September is also National Day of Service and Remembrance. Many different service projects, involving thousands of people, are going on around the country. You can find service opportunities at
