1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Mott Library Branch
1010 Dorr Street, Toledo, Ohio, 43607, Lucas County

Event Type

September 11th is Patriot Day, a time to remember and reflect on the terrorist attack that brought down the twin towers in New York City, the attack on the Pentagon, and the forced plane crash in Shanksville, PA that led to the deaths of 2,977 victims.

We will be talking about what it means to be a Patriot in this country and if Humanism is compatible with patriotism. Can we observe days like Patriot Day without adding prayers?

We will also look at the good qualities and negative aspects of patriotism and discuss ways we can have more good patriotism and less negative patriotism.

We will be meeting in Community Room A

Unless otherwise noted, all our meetings and events are open to the public and we adhere to the SHoWLE In-person Meeting Policy
