Patriot Day

President Bush proclaimed September 14, 2001, as the National Day of Prayor and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks. Congress designated observance on the actual anniversary of the attacks. The name said it all, but it was too much -- it was more popularly known as September 11 or simply 9/11 -- so it is to be Patriot Day.

Don't confuse it with Patriots' Day commemorating the Battle of Lexinton and observed in April in New England. There was a Revolutionary War battle on September 11, but that was in 1777.

Regardless of the possible confusion between Patriot Day and Patriots' Day, it is difficult not to remember the day America was attacked.
