Watch this YouTube tribute to this country and our brave first responders who keep up safe every day by Steve A (published on Jul 5, 2016). 


Steve says this song evokes an emotion and that emotion in him helped in the creation of this tribute video. While he wishes all of the images were high resolution....some images of that day were caught with low quality equipment and the images he chose all seemed to fit with how he was feeling. He witnessed the events of this day like many of us did and it changed him and us forever. Steve says it will always feel fresh in his mind and feel like it happened yesterday. Having experienced such a tragic day....your outlook on so many world events changes. It is amazing how divided the world seems right now but how unified we all were after the events of 9/11....


In memory of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, each year in the United States we observe Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance.

On October 25, 2001, the U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71 was approved.   Resolution 71 requested that the President designate September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day”.  President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001 (as Public Law 107-89).

On this day, it is asked by the President that the American flag is flown at half-staff at individual American homes, the White House and on all United States government buildings and establishments at home and abroad.  

The President has also asked Americans to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 A.M.(Eastern Daylight Time), the time the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.  

He also strongly encourages Americans to use the Corporation for National and Community Service to find and volunteer for service opportunities.
