Patriot Day

Sep 03, 2016

In 2002, President George W. Bush declared September 11th as Patriot Day in the USA. This day is to honor all those who lost their lives in the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. On Patriot Day, ceremonies and memorials are held across the United States. Find out more about this solemn observance.


On the morning of September 11th, 2001, terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. All of the people on board were killed, and many others in the building were also killed. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed into a field in rural Pennsylvania, after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane, which the hijackers had redirected toward Washington, D.C. In total, the attacks killed about 3000 people.

However, when you become pregnant, you know theres a CHANCE you COULD get pregnant, if you don't want to, use protection. People know the consequences with doing the "dirty", so if you think youre mature enough to do it, you can be mature enough to be a mom. And if you don't think you want to be a mom, theres adoption. Theres too many people who cant have babies for unknown reasons, I think that if you abort a baby, youre just throwing a smack in the face to those who cant have children.

Men should not choose what women do, and women should have the right to be able to control her baby. We do give the birth after all!!If someone was raped, I believe they have the right to abortion. Yes, however, I believe a father has the right to an opinion. Just because he doesn't have birth doesn't mean his opinions don't matter. Especially since its his child just as much as the mothers.
