Nine-Eleven was also breifly known as the Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11th, 2001.

Nine-Eleven is a mourning day in the United States.  On this day, the American flag should 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.
