Sept. 11, 2009, marks the eighth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack inflicted on our nation. Patriot Day reflects the compassion of people who stepped forward to help those they've never met and the generosity of millions of Americans who enriched our country with acts of service and kindness on that day in 2001. It is a true demonstration of why our country stands against those who force harm upon us.
