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:

  1. state and local governments and the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate programs and activities;

  2. 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;

  3. 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。

In 2009, President Barack Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act which recognizes September 11 as a , calling upon Americans to make an enduring commitment to serve their community and our Nation.
