More Than 200 Schools Will Always Remember

More Than 200 Schools Will Always Remember

17 years ago today, radical Islamic terrorists bent on destroying Americans’ way of life shook our nation at its core. Americans from coast to coast sat in shock and disbelief as our country changed forever. Families watched the video of the first tower being struck. They turned on their TVs just in time to experience the horror of the second tower being taken down. Icons of America’s greatness were turned to rubble. While many students today have no memory of this tragic event, Young America’s Foundation provides an opportunity to unite on the anniversary of the attacks to inspire commitment to defending our freedoms. Students at more than 200 high school and colleges across the country are taking part in the America’s largest campus activism initiative—YAF’s 9/11: Never Forget Project. Campuses and communities are coming together to remember the magnitude of loss our nation suffered in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 by creating powerful memorials comprised of 2,977 American flags—one for each victim. Many schools overlook the importance of the day and promote a politically correct version of history, but these patriotic student activists unite the country in meaningful remembrance of the lives lost that day. Started in 2003, Young America’s Foundation created the 9/11: Never Forget Project to help students, teachers, professors, and administrators to come together and remember one of the darkest days in American history. Since its inception, more than 10.4 million flags have been placed in hundreds of memorials. See below for live updates from around the country as students take part in this iconic activism project: Rancho Campana High School West Allis Central High School Whitworth University Middleton High School Fauquier High School Abilene Christian University Haynes Academy School for Advanced Studies Pasadena City College Rocklin High School San Fernando High School Hobart and William Smith Colleges Angelo State University Concordia Lutheran Schools of Omaha Grand Canyon University Highland High School Jesuit High School Marquette Senior High School The State University of New York at Oswego Trinity University University of Cincinnati University of California, Berkeley University of Central Florida University of Florida University of Missouri-Kansas City University of Pennsylvania University of Tennessee-Knoxville Vista Murrieta High School Hillsdale College University of Houston University of Arizona Bellevue High School American University Canyon High School Clemson University Columbia University Liberty University Pensacola Christian College Stetson University University of Central Oklahoma Virginia Tech West Virginia University College of the Ozarks Edina High School Gahanna Lincoln High School The George Washington University High Point University Indiana University Louisiana State University Mars Area High School Maryville High School Northwood High School University of Notre Dame Palo Alto High School Pennsylvania State University Randall Middle School Ravenscroft High School Shelby High School Skyline High School Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville Southern Methodist University St. Croix Preparatory Academy The Covenant School The Science Academy of South Texas Twinsburg High School University of Alabama University of Central Missouri University of Illinois University of Michigan University of Northern Iowa University of Texas at Arlington University of Virginia California State University, Los Angeles High Point University Gonzaga University University of Redlands Las Positas College Orange Lutheran High School University of Alabama-Huntsville University of Wisconsin-Madison Potomic Falls High School DePaul University North Oconee High School Loyola Marymount University Orange Coast Community College University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Freedom High School California State University, Channel Islands University at Buffalo Trinity Classical Academy Newman Catholic High School University of Mary Washington University of Utah Canyon Crest Academy Ernest S.
