September 11 is a day marked in history by the horror we witnessed of the twin towers falling in New York City, but this September 11 I wanted to focus on an unsung holiday called Patriot Day. A holiday that should be celebrated with more valor, but mass media solely focused on the terror incident of 2001. So let me start by defining what makes a patriot.

They are not thanked or appreciated often when they pass us, the everyday citizen, by.
