5 Ways To Observe Patriot Day In Remembrance of September 11

11th Sep 2013 / By Guest Contributor

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, and to honor the innocent lives we lost on this day, we’ve listed five things you can do around your community to observe Patriot Day.

  1. Deliver flowers to your local fire and police stations. Any form of appreciation would be a great move on this day as firemen and policemen are our local heroes.
  2. Take a break for each of the 6 moments of silence to commemorate the events that happened during these times: 8:46 AM, 9:03 AM, 9:37 AM, 9:59 AM, 10:03 AM, 10:28 AM.
  3. Check out your city publications to see what community events are being organized, and volunteer to help. If there aren’t any events, organize one! Consider gathering community members at a park to hold the moments of silence together.
  4. Join a volunteer service, such as a food drive or neighborhood cleanups. September 11 is also the National Day of Service and Remembrance to encourage Americans to take part in service projects. Visit United We Serve for more information.
  5. Donate to the 9/11 Memorial to help build a lasting place for reflection and remembrance for many generations to come.
