  • Patriot Day

    Patriot Day, or September 11, marks the terrible day when terrorists hijacked a series of airplanes to attack the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and a site in Pennsylvania. It was a day of unspeakable tragedy, horror, fear, and amazing acts of bravery by first responders and everyday citizens. When the smoke cleared, more than 3,000 people had been killed, and the nation was propelled into a conflict unlike any it had faced before, forever changing life in America and the way Americans view the wider world.
