Remembering 9/11

Patriot Day
September 11, 2001, was a defining moment in American history. On September 11, 2001, our nation was attacked and many innocent people died. By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001, Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day" (Public Law 107-89). On Patriot Day, we remember the innocent victims, and pay tribute to the valiant firefighters, police officers, emergency personnel, and ordinary citizens who risked their lives so others might live. President George W. Bush requests that flags be flown at half-staff and that we observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. ET to honor the innocent Americans and people from around the world who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
