Patriot Day – September 11

Patriot Day marks one of the most tragic events to ever occur on American soil. These educational resources memorialize that event and the victims lost on that day. The resources are in alphabetical order according to the resource titles. If you find a broken link or have a resource to share with other parents please use the contact tab.

Cheap is good, free is better! It is my endeavor to locate no-cost resources for parents but occasionally some websites will charge some type of membership fees or subscription. Ultimately, it is the parent’s responsibility to monitor their child’s online activities.

  1. Beautiful photos and very moving!!


    • Jackie Saulmon Ramirez says:

      Thank you very much for that. I think my favorite photo here is the one on the observation deck, but they are all moving. I am still touched when I see the Twin Towers in old movies. Thank you again.


  2. Great information. A wonderful job of research. I will even use some for grands. Hugs, Barbara


    • Jackie Saulmon Ramirez says:

      Thank you, Barbara. I know 9/11 was a big blow to America as well as other countries and it is good t remember. I used to photograph gravestones and the one I came across left me with quite a chill. Thank you again, Barbara. ❤


      • It made me realize why my father was so upset about Pearl Harbor. The light came on. Hugs, Barbara


      • Jackie Saulmon Ramirez says:

        The 9/11 event is one of those times where everyone remembers where they were when they heard the news. Being here in Jersey, many people know people were lost or have stories about that day. September 11th will forever be a tragedy for all of America and we lost our feeling of security that day. When I saw the 2nd plane hit I told my girlfriend on the phone that our world had forever changed. That was my “light.”


      • Yep. May we have no more. Hugs, Hugs, Barbara

    Thanks Jackie for this resource information.


    • Jackie Saulmon Ramirez says:

      Thank you, the various sources – even for teaching children about it – are for everyone.


      • annetbell says:

        I retired in 2012 in order to go to India in 1/13, but every year while I was in the classroom I told my 9/11 story which I will post tomorrow.Then I would take the kids mostly 3rd graders to the computer lab to see the images. I think it was 2010 or 2011 when the real images were included of the poor souls who choose to jump were available to see. I tried to be age appropriate and never had any parents complain. You are so right. . . “the day all peoples of the world were one!”

        Because you are a teacher you were sensitive to the kids’ needs for knowledge yet showing the sheer brutality of the act. Seeing the people falling was definitely teaching empathy.

        That morning I was getting ready for a meeting and saw on the Today Show as the planes hit the buildings. I went to the meeting in Freehold, NJ very upset. Some of the members in the meeting knew people who worked there and one’s grandfather in NY was watching out the building when the planes hit. I went home and picked up one daughter from high school and the other from Rutgers University since all classes were cancelled. It was a terrible day, but for once, we were one in our sadness and fear. Thank you for sharing that story. ❤

        Thank you for sharing with me. Another day of heartbreak (I remember Kennedy’s assassination) where our hearts were broken and all innocence faded into the darkness of this world .
