Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance

American-flag-PLS

We take a break from our regular posting to honor those who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honor and commemorate those lives lost. Fellow Americans are asked to observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. EST, the time the first plane crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.
