September 11th is a day never to be forgotten in America. Out of it, came two separate events of remembrance on this day every year – Patriot’s Day and National Day of Remembrance and Service. A day that all America unites to remember and give back.
Patriot’s Day or ,9/11, is a day dedicated to remembering and paying tribute to those 2,977 people killed and injured during the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. All Americans remember where they were when the first plane struck the Twin Towers in New York. Washington, DC and
Shanksville, Pennsylvania would follow.
The history of Patriot’s Day began when four jet planes were hijacked. Two of these planes hit the New York World Trade Centre and then the Pentagon in Arlington. We as Americans will always remember the 93 brave men and women on United Airlines Flight 93. They are true heroes who gave all in the name of the United States of America. We salute them all. These four attacks resulted in the biggest act of terrorism ever on United States soil.
Patriots Day is recognized by the United States as an official day of remembrance for these tragic events. We observe it annually to pay our respects and never forget the impact it had not only on America but international countries as well.
Flags are flown half-staff on this day and The President asks all Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8:46 am (Eastern Daylight Time). This was the time the first plane hit the tower. Let us all participate in this moment and give thanks for this great country we live in and all those who gave so much. Check your local media for events happening in our area.
