Don’t forget to join David and I tonight at 7P.M. EST for Perfcast, the live podcast all about blogging where we discuss the weeks news and have a bit of fun while were at it. Today just so happens to be September 11th which according to the calendars that I have seen at work, is now considered Patriot day.
In the United States, Patriot Day occurs on September 11 of each year, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the September 11, 2001, attacks. Most Americans refer to the day as “Nine-Eleven (9/11),” “September 11th,” “Nine-one-one,” or some variation thereof.
U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71 was approved by a vote of 407-0 on October 25, 2001. It requested that the President designate September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day.” President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001 (as Public Law 107-89). It is a discretionary day of remembrance.

My personal condolences go out to those who have lost a loved one due to the tragedies that took place on this day in 2001.
