POUGHKEEPSIE, NY – New York State Senator Terry Gipson (D-Dutchess, Putnam) recognized that today, September 11, 2014, is Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance.Patriot Day was established in 2001 when President George W. Bush signed U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71 designating September 11 as Patriot Day to memorialize the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks. Flags at residences and in public spaces are flown at half-staff in observance. In 2012, President Barack Obama renamed Patriot Day “Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance” to encourage public service in honor of the first responders and volunteers without whom many more lives would undoubtedly have been lost.

Remembering September 11th

It’s hard to believe that 13 years have passed since nearly 3,000 lives were tragically cut short. 

Please join me in taking a moment today to remember and honor the lives of all those who were taken from us, the brave heroes who helped save lives, and the men and women still working to protect us.  Now, more than ever, we must continue to demonstrate that we remain the strongest, most compassionate, and most resilient nation in the world.

Remembering September 11, 2001

The years keep passing, 13 have now gone by, but Americans of all ages will gather again this week, in the words of former President George W. Bush, to “honor the memory of the 11th day.”

From east to west, from north to south, Americans do their duty as citizens to remember September 11, 2001, like we always have, and like we always will.

For this generation, to this very day, September 11th evokes one of the most powerful reminders of all: we are Americans and above all else, in the toughest of times, we will stand together in aid, in comfort, and in resolve.
