Will You Commit To #NeverForget The Anniversary Of 9/11?

Will You Commit To #NeverForget The Anniversary Of 9/11?

Join thousands of students across the country on the 17th anniversary of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 in remembering the lives taken by radical Islamist terrorists bent on destroying our way of life. The now-iconic displays made up of 2,977 American flags—one for each life snuffed out on September 11—create moving and meaningful memorials on campus quads and high school lawns from coast to coast. Young America’s Foundation provides students with resources and step-by-step guidance to raise funds and create an American flag memorial at your school, schedule a campus-wide moment of silence or prayer, and bring a conservative speaker to your school. Many students returning to campus this fall were too young on 9/11 to have concrete memories of the day our nation came under attack or remember 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 respectful memorials to bring their peers and community together to remember the loss America suffered. Since its inception in 2003, YAF’s 9/11: Never Forget Project has seen more than 10.4 million American flags placed in hundreds of memorials each year, and it has grown to become the largest nationwide campus initiative in America. 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: Abilene Christian University ACE Charter High Amador High School Amherst College Andrean High School Angelo State Aquinas College Atholton High School Augustana College Augustana University Bartow County College & Career Academy Bellevue High School Benedictine University Beverly Hills High School Boise State University Bowdoin College Byron Steele Byron Steele High School California State University – Los Angeles California State University San Marcos Canyon Crest Academy Canyon High School Cardinal Mooney High School Carnegie Mellon University Center For International Education Central High School Classical Preparatory School Clemson University College of Lake County College Of The Ozarks Collinsville High School Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School Concordia College Moorhead Concordia Jr. And Sr. High School Cornell University Dallastown Area High School District Dalton State College Dartmouth College DePaul University Duquesne University East Carolina University Edgewood-Colesburg High School Edina High School Emory University Ernest S McBride High School Fauquier High School Ferris State University Flagler College Florida Southern College Forsyth Country Day School Francis Lewis High School Francis W.
