Today is Patriot Day. It is not a day for politics as usual.

“The U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71 was approved by a vote of 407-0 on October 25, 2001. It requested that the President designate September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day." President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001 (as Public Law 107-89). It is a discretionary day of remembrance.

Initially, the day was called the Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims Of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001. On September 4, 2002, President Bush used his authority created by the resolution and proclaimed September 11, 2002, as Patriot Day. On this day, the President directs that the American flag be flown at half-staff at individual American homes, at the White House, and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments, home and abroad. The President also asks Americans to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 A.M. (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane crash on September 11, 2001.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriot_Day)

Spend some time today remembering and praying for the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the attacks of 9/11, including those firemen, police, and other responders who gave their lives trying to rescue people they didn’t even know. Remember also the spirit of unity, patriotism, and determination that swept our country in the days following the attack.
