Patriot Day

Tomorrow is Patriot Day.  In the United States, Patriot Day occurs on September 11 of each year in memory of the people killed in the September 11 attacks in the year 2001. A bill to make September 11 a national day of mourning was introduced in the U.S. House on October 25, 2001, by Representative Vito Fossella with 22 co-sponsors. The result was the resolution to proclaim September 11, 2002, as the first Patriot Day.
