**On September 11, 2001, 102 minutes changed the lives of Americans forever.  Today marks the 20th anniversary of this fateful day; a day of great sorrow and  tremendous loss, but also a day that exemplified the triumph of the human  spirit. From this day came stories of incredible sacrifice and heroism as first  responders and average citizens rushed to the aid of others. It is in the spirit of  this service that by joint resolution of the U.S. Congress on Dec. 18, 2001,  September 11 was designated as Patriot Day, a national day of service, that  calls Americans across the country to volunteer in their local communities to  honor the selfless sacrifice of so many on that day and many days since. 

For more information about serving on this and other national days of service,  please visit and the 9/11 Memorial Museum at 

That’s all the news for today. Have a fabulous Friday, Linganore!
