Patriot Day

Patriot Day is an annual national observance in the United States dedicated to honoring and remembering those who were injured or lost their lives during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Every year, this day unites Americans in a shared moment of silence, contemplation, and determination.

Established by a joint resolution of Congress on December 18, 2001, Patriot Day was designated to provide a framework for the country’s continued expression of grief and recovery from an event that forever changed the world. The focus is not only on the tragic deaths of nearly 3,000 people, but also on the extraordinary heroism, resilience, and unity that emerged in its aftermath.

Central to Patriot Day's significance are ceremonies and acts of service. Flags are flown at half-staff across the country and a moment of silence is observed at 8:46 AM (Eastern Daylight Time), the exact moment the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center. There's also a "National Day of Service and Remembrance" associated with it, inviting people to engage in charitable activities as a tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service. Patriot Day is observed on September 11 each year.
