Patriot’s Day

For September 11, 2019, my calendar says “Patriot’s Day”, which I assumed meant recognizing the horrific terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. I did a little research.

I found that Patriot’s Day is several states’ commemoration of the battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution. Maine, Massachusetts and Connecticut have Patriot’s Day as state holidays in April. Wisconsin and Florida also recognize it.

While I believe September 11, 2001 is the current generation’s “Day of Infamy”, and must/will be remembered, even Pearl Harbor Day (December 7, 1941) is not a national holiday. Just sayin’.

Thought for the Day: Americans never quit!
