Following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush declared September 11 as Patriot Day.  Also known as ‘Nine-Eleven’, Patriot Day is to serve as a day of remembrance for the people injured and killed following the hijacking of the planes that crashed into New York’s World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Another hijacked plane crashed into an open field near Shanksville, PA when some passengers heroically attempted to retake the plane from the terrorist hijackers. There was a total of four planes hijacked that day.  Although September 11 is not a national holiday, Americans should display the flag at their homes and flags at all government offices should be raised at half mast to show respect for the 9/11 victims.
