Patriot Day is celebrated to commemorate the people killed in the September 11 attacks

Even though it was more than 20 years ago, the impact of 9/11 on the families of those who lost their lives remains as painful as ever. The horrific images and video footage of a hijacked plane – American Airlines Flight 11 – crashing into the North Tower of the World Trade Center before United Airlines Flight 175 flew into the South Tower of the World Trade Center have left a painful mark on the memories of Millions of people burned the world.

Today is officially called Patriot Day, a national day of service and remembrance commemorating the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001.

Across the country, people are pausing to remember those who lost their lives on the 22nd anniversary of the attacks and vowing to “never forget” 9/11.

The mantra “Never Forget” has grown in importance over the years

The importance of the “Never Forget” mantra in the context of 9/11 has only increased over time. A new generation of Americans, new or unborn, are now young adults who have no memory of the tragic events of that fateful day.

That’s why it’s more important now than ever to never forget 9/11 and those who lost their lives. As a 9/11 Memorial & Museum says“We will share the story and lessons learned with a new generation, educate them about the lasting impact of the September 11 attacks, and inspire the world with reminders of our fortitude, strength and resilience.”

“We saw the state of our union in the endurance of the rescuers who worked to the point of exhaustion.

We saw the decency of a loving and generous people embracing the grief of strangers.” – Former President George W. Bush.
