Celebrate the Resilience of Our Nation!
September 11th marks one of the darkest days in American history when terrorists launched sim
ultaneous attacks on our homeland on that day in 2001. They used three hijacked airliners to hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon while a fourth hijacked plane tried but failed to attack the U.S. Capitol or the White House in Washington D.C., crashing in a Pennsylvania field. The attacks claimed 2,974 lives on that fateful day.
In the aftermath of the attacks, a bill was introduced to observe September 11th as a National Day of Mourning. During the term of President Barack Obama, the date was declared Patriot Day.
Patriot Day is observed every year to pay tribute to the civilians, responders, and heroes who perished during the 9/11 attacks. It is a day dedicated to remembering the fallen and celebrating the resilience of the nation to rise from the tragedy and stand up against threats to American life and liberty.
Veteran Car Donations shares some meaningful ways of observing Patriot Day:

- Talk about 9/11 on social media.
