Never Forget September 11th is Patriot Day

Patriot Day is celebrated September 11th which is the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001. To mark the anniversary of the bombing of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001, President Bush proclaimed that September 11 be named Patriot Day. On this day, the proclamation asks that flags be flown at half-mast and that the day be marked by ceremonies, candlelight vigils, and other remembrance services. Patriot Day was established to honor the individuals who lost their lives as a result of terrorist attacks on 9/11. The tragedy of September 11th will never be forgotten. God Bless America!

Sites were created to help educators teach students about peace, tolerance, war, patriotism, geography, and other related issues about America. There are many sites that feature resources and tips to help adults and youths of all ages reflect and respond to the anniversary of the attacks. You can view photos of New York Harbor from Mrs. McGowan's First Grade site at . There are more sites that can be used to study American heroes and other patriotic themes over the course of a year. You can visit sites and pages for resources on patriotism, national holidays, symbols of the US, our 50 States, the Flag, the Pledge of Allegiance, heroes, and many other national holidays.

You can check out some of these sites by going to PATRIOT DAY SEPTEMBER 11.
