Patriot Day 2013: A Day to Remember

We Americans have been through some memorable days together — December 7, 1941 and November 22, 1996, to name just two. We identify those particular dates closely to the events that took place to set them apart. The dates become part of our shared history as U.S. citizens and each represents something important about our country.

And so it is with Patriot Day. An annual observance to honor those people who were killed or injured during the terrorist attack on the United States on September 11th, 2001, Patriot Day allows the American public to stop and remember to grieve.

Although Patriot Day is not a federal holiday, it is an opportunity for Americans to pay their respects by flying the flags outside their home or business at half-mast. Some people mark the moment the first plane flew into the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. (EDT) by observing a time of silence. That moment of silence serves as a reflective period during which people can remember the fallen, celebrate the heroes, and consider the changes to our country since that time.
