In memory of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, in which nearly 3,000 people were killed, the United States observes Patriot Day, which is also called the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
On this day, the American flag is flown at half-mast at individual homes, as well as at the White House and government buildings, both in the U.S. and abroad. The president also encourages all Americans who are able to volunteer for service opportunities on that day.
In that way, the victims of 9/11 are remembered so we, in turn, can honor them.
What are your remembrances of September 11, 2001? Please share your comments below.
