In observance of Patriot Day, fly the American flag at half-staff from sunrise until sundown. A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America September 11, 2001, was imprinted into America’s remembrance when 19 terrorists attacked us by means of barbarity unparalleled in our history. On Patriot Day, we treasure the remembrance of the thousands of blameless victims lost, extend our thoughts and prayers to their families, and honor the heroic men and women who risked and sacrificed their lives so others might survive. Since 9/11, we have documented the danger posed by terrorists to the security of the American citizens and worked to guard our homeland by fighting terrorists over seas. We are confronting terrorism by advancing sovereignty, liberation, and prosperity as an alternative to the ideologies of abhorrence and cruelty. Our Country pays homage to our courageous men and women in uniform serving about the globe and the dedicated members of our law enforcement, public safety, and intelligence communities at home who work night and day to protect us from harm and preserve the freedom of this great Nation. Seven years ago, normal citizens rose to the challenge, united in prayer, and responded with extraordinary acts of valor, with some giving their lives for the country they loved. On Patriot Day, we remember all those who were taken from us in an instant and seek out their permanent memorial in a safer and more hopeful world. We should not permit our resolve to be undermined by the passage of time. We will meet the test that history has given us and continue to fight to rid the world of terrorism and promote liberty about the globe. By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has voted September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day.”
