Fourteen years after Islamic extremists affiliated with Osama bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization attacked the United States with commercial airliners on 9/11/2001, we solemnly remember the 2977 who were killed with a national day of prayer and remembrance. A bill to make September 11th a national day of mourning was passed into law and designated as Patriot Day. The first Patriot Day was 9/11/2002 and it has been a day of half-staff flags, moving moments of silence and memorial ceremonies ever since.
This year I noticed an impressive corn maze into the countryside by a farmer celebrating the heroism and American resolve by one of our country’s patriots – Chris Kyle. It is a deserving memorial and another way for Americans around this country to honor those who have fought and those who continue to fight for our country. True patriots … all of them.
