Patriot Day: In memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11

Patriot Day is not a celebration but an annual observance on the 11th of September to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks in the United States of America on the same day in the year 2001. Patriot Day is also known as 9/11.

Patriot Day is not a federal holiday, and schools and workplaces remain open. On the direction of the President the flag of the United States of America should be flown at half mast on all American houses, the White House and US Government buildings all over the world as a mark of respect to those who died in the attacks. At 8:46 am (eastern daylight time) many people observe a moment of silence, as this was the time the first plane was flown into the World Trade Center. Prayer meetings and church services are also held.

People send cards to the friends and family of those precious souls who had to go through the horror of 9/11. ‘God Bless America’ and ‘Peace to the nation’ cards are also sent on that day.
