Since the tragedies of September 11, 2001, the nation has begun to observe the anniversary as Patriot Day, and also as a day of service. In addition to flying the American Flag in celebration of freedom, it is important to observe a moment of silence to honor the thousands of lives lost on that day, right here on American soil.
Americans should also practice volunteerism, signifying unity, strength and service. Some websites, like serve.gov and 911day.org, offer pledge forms, visuals of service projects and ideas for volunteer opportunities.
