September 11th Patriot’s Day

I suspect a lot of people remember where they were when the towers fell. I was at my ex husband’s photo studio doing a friend’s makeup for author photos. When my ex yelled a string of expletives I won’t repeat, I rushed into his office, expecting him to be bleeding or injured in some way. Watching the films horrified my friend and me. We went back to our photo prep and once again yells sent us rushing back. We were almost afraid to leave the TV to do the shoot, but we did. After that we had radios playing while we ran errands. but that day we kept waiting for another disaster! The USA was under attack!

In memory of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, each year in the United States we observe Patriot Day and the National Day of Service and Remembrance.

On September 10, 2012, President Obama issued a proclamation. The day was renamed Patriot Day and the National Day of Service and Remembrance

On September 11th, the American flag is to be flown at half-staff at American homes, the White House, and all United States government buildings, whether abroad or at home. Also, Americans are asked to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 A.M.(Eastern Daylight Time), because this is the time the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The president also strongly encourages Americans to volunteer for service opportunities that day.

Please share your thoughts and remembrances of that day by leaving a comment.
