    Why 2012 is the Most Important Year to Remember 9/11

    By Ron Meyer, Young America's Foundation Spokesman

    It's been nearly 11 years since terrorists struck the World Trade Center and Pentagon--murdering 2,977 people and injuring countless others.

    Every year since 2003, Young America's Foundation has memorialized the victims of these brutal attacks with the 9/11:Never Forget Project. This project encourages students to build a picturesque flag memorial with 2,977 flags, schedule a campus-wide moment of silence, and to pass out posters and buttons to help people remember 9/11.  

    Thousands of memorials have been built on college campuses across the nation since 2003. More than 200 campuses have already committed to doing the project this year alone. The Foundation started the project because campuses were forgetting to properly honor this anniversary, and in 2012, we need to continue guarding against this forgetfulness.

    Many college and high school students can barely remember 9/11. Seniors in college were in fifth grade, freshmen were in first grade, and most high schoolers hadn't even started school.

    2012 is the most important year--so far--to remember 9/11 because our younger generations are the most in danger of forgetting what really happened.

    Or worse, our younger generations are susceptible to getting a politically correct view of 9/11. Many on the Left have tried to turn 9/11 into a "day of national service" or a celebration of tolerance, instead of remembering that radical jihad attacked this nation because of our western values.

    This year, help young Americans truly remember 9/11 by scheduling a memorial at your local campus. Find our more here: *9/11: Never Forget Project*
