In his proclamation of Patriot Day in 2003, President Bush called upon all citizens to commemorate September 11 each year with solemn ceremonies and and personal reflection in memory of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States that killed thousands of innocent people and changed the lives of thousands more forever.

Reference Information

remembrance poppy

All the passengers and crew members of the four jets, plus hundreds more people who were in the buildings struck by hijacked airliners on September 11, 2001 died horribly or were injured as the world watched and listened in shock and pain. Some who perished were helping the victims. The twin light beams that symbolize the fallen towers of the world trade center are like beacons sending a message to the stars of the fallen.

9/11 - A Day for REMEMBRANCE and REFLECTION

On September 11 (Patriot Day) each year, take some time to remember those who died in the terrorist attacks and honor their sacrifice.

If you can manage it, try to visit a memorial site to reflect and say a prayer for the victims and their loved ones and friends.

Remember those heroic passengers on Flight 93 who fought back and prevented the hijackers from completing their deadly mission to crash their plane into yet another building (presumed to be in the Capitol).
