Patriot Day

Patriot Day is an annual American holiday. Dedicated to the terrible tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001. The total number of victims reached about 10 thousand people.


Patriot Day has been celebrated since 2002. A terrible date will forever remain in the memory of people. Terrorist attacks have claimed the lives of many people.

In total, 4 aircraft were hijacked by terrorists. The first two planes rammed the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Almost three thousand people were killed. The third plane made an attack on the Pentagon building, causing serious damage. Least of all, the terrorists were lucky with the fourth plane – the passengers understood the seriousness of the situation and made a courageous decision to take control of the plane. As a result, he fell into a Pennsylvania field. Such an act of people prevented another large-scale tragedy.

Interesting facts

  • Patriot Day is officially enshrined in US law and recognized as a day of remembrance of the tragedy as a result of terrorist attacks.
  • The President asks citizens in the morning at 8.46 (it was at this time that the first attack on the North Tower was made) to observe a minute of silence, honoring the memory of people.
  • In 2006, the film United 93 was released, which is dedicated to the events of the tragedy. He talks about the 4th plane hijacked by terrorists. Much attention is paid to the passengers themselves, who tried to do everything possible and prevent a disaster. The emphasis is on their behavior, interaction between people in a critical situation.

How to celebrate

Patriot Day is a day of mourning. It would not be superfluous to post on social networks a post about the events that took place so that people never forget about the danger of terrorists. You can watch documentaries and read different points of view on the events.
