Patriot Day is to remember and honor those who lost their lives on this day, 9/11. Then from the tragedy, we can re-build and re-new our efforts to heal deep wounds and to find peace for our world.
This song helps to say it the best.
I Have a Dream by Donnelly/Strid
I have a dream for all the people in the world
That peace, hope, and freedom will ring.
Yes I have a dream.
