A Patriotic Reminder

By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day." On this day the American flag is to be flown at half-staff on all federal buildings. Many citizens of the United States observe Patriot Day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and remembrance services, display the flag at half-staff from their homes, and observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor the innocent Americans and people from around the world who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
