The Wednesday Read

Just because some people are fueled by drama doesn’t mean you have to attend the performance. ― Cheryl Richardson

These topics caught my attention in the last 24 hours:

  • Patriot Day
  • Political Robocalls
  • John Bolton
  • Donald Trump/Jonathan Carl

PATRIOT DAY:

Today (September 11) is Patriot Day. Patriot Day was established on December 18, 2001.

Public Law 107–89
107th Congress
Joint Resolution
Amending title 36, United States Code, to designate September 11 as Patriot Day.

Whereas on September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked four civilian
aircraft, crashing two of them into the towers of the World Trade
Center in New York City, and a third into the Pentagon outside
Washington, D.C.;

Whereas the fourth hijacked aircraft crashed in southwestern
Pennsylvania after passengers tried to take control of the aircraft
in order to prevent the hijackers from crashing the aircraft into
an important symbol of democracy and freedom;

Whereas these attacks were by far the deadliest terrorist attacks
ever launched against the United States, killing thousands of
innocent people; and

Whereas in the aftermath of the attacks the people of the United
States stood united in providing support for those in need: Now,
therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. DESIGNATION OF SEPTEMBER 11 AS PATRIOT DAY.

Let us never forget 9/11.
