These Conservative Students Aren't Forgetting 9/11

These Conservative Students Aren’t Forgetting 9/11

On the 16th anniversary of the devastating terror attacks of September 11, 2001, hundreds of high school and college campuses around the country will participate in Young America’s Foundation’s 9/11: Never Forget Project, becoming sites of meaningful remembrance. The memorials are made up of 2,977 American flags placed on campus, one for each innocent life taken by radical Islamists bent on destroying Americans’ way of life. Since Young America’s Foundation launched the 9/11: Never Forget Project in 2003, more than 9.7 million American flags have been placed in hundreds of memorials, and it has grown to become the largest nationwide campus initiative. Now many students have no memory of where they were when they first saw video of the towers being struck, how they felt seeing icons of America’s greatness turned to rubble. To make matters worse, many schools now push a politically correct agenda on the anniversary of the attacks, revising history to avoid their concerns of offending anyone—a sad phenomenon that happens far too often at our nation’s schools. To address this troubling trend of brushing aside the reality of September 11, 2001, Young America’s Foundation launched the 9/11: Never Forget Project to help students create proper, respectful, and accurate memorials to help their peers remember the lost. Add your school to the list of those taking part in YAF’s 9/11: Forget Project and remembering the anniversary of September 11, 2001 here. Schools participating this year include:
