Sunday, September 11th, 2016 marks the 15 year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93 which crashed in suburban Pennsylvania. Patriot Day serves as a remembrance of the lives lost on that September morning.
On Patriot Day, the President directs that the American flag be flown at half-staff at individual American homes, at the White House, and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments, home and abroad. The President also asks Americans to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 AM Eastern time, the time the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center that morning.

Arielle Newman, sister of Troop 37 Alumni – Eagle Scouts Keith Newman and Kyle Newman, was an award-winning track and cross country runner for Notre Dame Academy High School, Staten Island. She was the 2005 and 2006 Staten Island Girls High School Varsity Cross Country Champion. Arielle was a captain of the track team and voted MVP. She was a Staten Island Advance All Star four times, once posthumously. Arielle died April 3, 2007 from an aspirin-like ingredient, methyl salicylate, found in over the counter muscle creams. The Newman family and friends picked up the torch from the Pepper Martin Run continuing a Fourth of July tradition. This Run is in her honor and to foster awareness of the dangers of this ingredient
