September 11th is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. On this day Americans across the country are called to volunteer in their local communities in tribute to the individuals lost and injured in the attacks, first responders, and the many who have risen in service to defend freedom.

The events of September 11th, 2001 ripped families apart, shook a nation, and brought together the best of everyone to help pull us out of a dark time.
When we start to feel this world is to much to handle all we need to do is look back at the events of 9/11 and see that we can pull through anything when we come together as one nation.
