    Patriot Day, 2002
    By the President of the United States of America
    A Proclamation

    On this first observance of Patriot Day, we remember and honor those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. We will not forget the events of that terrible morning nor will we forget how Americans responded in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in the skies over Pennsylvania -- with heroism and selflessness; with compassion and courage; and with prayer and hope. We will always remember our collective obligation to ensure that justice is done, that freedom prevails, and that the principles upon which our Nation was founded endure.

    Inspired by the heroic sacrifices of our firefighters, rescue and law enforcement personnel, military service members, and other citizens, our Nation found unity, focus, and strength. We found healing in the national outpouring of compassion for those lost, as tens of millions of Americans participated in moments of silence, candlelight vigils, and religious services. From the tragedy of September 11 emerged a stronger Nation, renewed by a spirit of national pride and a true love of country.

    We are a people dedicated to the triumph of freedom and democracy over evil and tyranny. The heroic stories of the first responders who gave their all to save others strengthened our resolve. And our Armed Forces have pursued the war against terrorism in Afghanistan and else-where with valor and skill. Together with our coalition partners, they have achieved success.

    Americans also have fought back against terror by choosing to overcome evil with good. By loving their neighbors as they would like to be loved, countless citizens have answered the call to help others. They have contributed to relief efforts, improved homeland security in their communities, and volunteered their time to aid those in need. This spirit of service continues to grow as thousands have joined the newly established USA Freedom Corps, committing themselves to changing America one heart at a time through the momentum of millions of acts of decency and kindness.

    Those whom we lost last September 11 will forever hold a cherished place in our hearts and in the history of our Nation. As we mark the first anniversary of that tragic day, we remember their sacrifice; and we commit ourselves to honoring their memory by pursuing peace and justice in the world and security at home. By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has authorized and requested the President to designate September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day."

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 11, 2002, as Patriot Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities, including remembrance services and candlelight vigils. I also call upon the Governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as well as appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff on Patriot Day. Further, I encourage all Americans to display the flag at half-staff from their homes on that day and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time, or another appropriate commemorative time, to honor the innocent victims who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-seventh.

    GEORGE W. BUSH

    Aha! Maybe THAT is what is wrong with this country! People are only patriotic ONE day per year? NOW, I get it!
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    What are you remembering? Because all I can remember is all the lies the government and media was telling us.
    We all had to put up with the Emergency Warning System testing interrupting the show we were watching but at the moment the EWS could be used it was not and still has not been used but we keep having the testing done for it.
    I also remember when I could get on an airplane without being molested by an TSA agent and could carry on the bottle of soda I bought along with my fingernail clippers.

    I remember needless deaths. I remember terrorism being used as a pretext for infringing on our civil rights. I remember traveling with my carbine in the trunk of my car. I remember an administration that broke faith with our people in Benghazi.

    I remember a lot of things associated with 9-11.

    what crap

    it is a day of mourning for me as I remember the many friends and colleagues who lost their lives on that day, it is a day to think about all the wives who lost husband, husbands who lost wives, children who lost parents. the people killed on that day were just like you and me, except that they were caught in a building that some morons decided to destroy because they considered it to be a symbol of the greatness of this country.
    so if you want to fool yourself with some touchy feely, hopey changey day of doing things, go ahead but those of us who were affected by this day of mass murder will not be celebrating anything.

    Well, no, September 11th is NOT Patriot's Day, but rather Patriot Day. It's right there in the proclamation. Patriot's Day is April 19th (typically observed on the third Monday in April.) See also: Patriot's Day in United States

    No, I don't know why they're named so similarly. Yes, it's kind of confusing.

    That is all.

    Yep there were 21 participants versus thousands of patriotic bikers.

    edited - DC police estimate a million or more bikers.
