On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners to strike targets in the United States. Nearly 3,000 people died as a result of the attacks.
By presidential proclamation, Americans are called on to participate in a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 AM Eastern Daylight Time on September 11. They may also observe the day with ceremonies and activities, including remembrance services. Flags should be displayed at half-staff in honor of the individuals who lost their lives.
Many Americans will serve in their communities in honor of 9/11 as part of the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
