Happy Monday Atlassian Community!

As many of you probably know, today is Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance in the United States. It is the day that we remember the people who lost their lives during the September 11th attacks in 2001 including those on the planes, in the World Trade Center, in the Pentagon, in a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania and all the first responders.

In the immediate aftermath of the September 11th tragedies, the United States and the world came together with a spirt of unity. To honor this day, we need to revive that sprit and get as many people as possible to perform an “act of kindness” or a “good deed”. No act is too small! President Obama said it best in a 2011 radio address when he said, “Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11."

So, will you join me in doing a good deed today? Will you donate money or time to your favorite charity? Will you climb stairs to honor the 343 first responders who gave their lives that day? Or will you simply submit a message of remembrance to the 911 memorial in NYC to ensure future generations never forget? Whatever you decide to do to honor those that we lost that day, share it here with all of us.

I have included some resources below that may help you decide what gesture of honor you would like to make.

I hope you have a great Monday!

Today, I donated two of my favorite 9/11 causes, submitted a message of remembrance, and I will visit The Healing Fields this afternoon and leave pennies on the boots of soldiers and make a donation to keep The Tempe Healing Fields tradition going.

Looking back through the archives... Thank you for this post. I have had the privilege and honour of being part of the honour-guard in the 911 ceremony in NY. I have attended it several times and visited many firehalls there. I've been a volunteer firefighter for 18 years.
