Today, September 11th is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. On this day Americans across the country are called to volunteer in their local communities in tribute to the individuals lost and injured in the attacks, first responders, and the many who have risen in service to defend freedom. On December 18, 2001, President George W. Bush signed the House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71, signing into law the designation of September 11 as Patriot Day. Though not considered a federal holiday, the tradition continues to this day with American flags flown at half-staff at all United States government buildings across the globe, special ceremonies are held and people participate in community service in a day of remembrance, mourning, and respect for those who gave their lives and for those who helped save them. A Day to Remember. A Day to Never Forget. This #911Day how will you serve your community?
