I worked next to the World Trade, and was there when that tragedy occurred. I pray for any one who lost friends or family on that day.

Display your Flag

Patriot Day is observed on September 11th.

Patriot Day was signed into law on December 18, 2001 as a day to remember those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on our country.

On Patriot Day, Americans should fly their flags at half-staff and observe a moment of silence to honor those individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks.

On September 11, 2001, two hijacked civilian aircraft crashed into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. A third hijacked aircraft crashed into the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C. And a forth hijacked aircraft crashed in southwestern Pennsylvania after passengers tried to take control of the aircraft in order to prevent the hijackers from crashing the aircraft into an important symbol of democracy and freedom. Thousands of innocent people lost their lives in this tragedy.


The President is requested to issue each year a proclamation calling on:

state and local governments and the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate programs and activities;
all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States and interested organizations and individuals to display the flag of the United States at half-staff on Patriot Day in honor of the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001;
the people of the United States to observe a moment of silence on Patriot Day in honor of the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001.

Just watched a replay of the events of 7 yrs ago and still the same sick and angry feeling in my gut.

My husband lost 2 co-workers from Raytheon co.
I knew 1 person that perished, a high school classmate, that was returning back to CA from Ma.

So tragic indeed.
over 2900 souls lost.

Prayers & Hugs to all

I'm having a hard time dealing this morning. I'm about 15 min from NYC. My daughter had a beautiful view of NYC from her classroom window 7 yrs ago. Her teacher pulled the shades that day...and the next day when the shades were opened the whole world changed. :(

I live about 10 minutes from the Pentagon and everytime I drive by I get chills. September 11th is a day of reflection for me. At the time I had a couple that I spent a lot of time with and were very good friends. The husband worked as a contractor in the Pentagon and the wife and I worked very close to each other. Let me first say, my friend is alive and well and was not physically injured that day - thank you Lord!! On the morning of the 9/11 attacks, phone service in the DC area was jammed and you couldn't get through. Traffic was a nightmare getting out of the city. It was scary. I immediately went to the wife's office to wait with her. It was the longest 2 hours of our lives. At the moment the world was changing we were desparately trying to contact her husband, one of my closest friends. For 2 hours, we didn't know anything. Finally her husband got to a land line and let us know he was safe. He did lose a friend and co-worker on that day. Over the years we have drifted apart and they are no longer married, but we have that bond and we are so thankful that we are the lucky ones who's loved one came home that day.
Since this time I have had relatives and friends in the military. I am so thankful for their sacrifices.
I think one thing that needs to be addressed when we remember 9/11 victims are the silent issues that don't often get talked about. PTSD affects victims and many members of our military. It often goes undiagnosed and/or untreated. If you know someone who has been in a situation, reach out to them and look for signs of PTSD and do what you can to try to get them help.
