  • Universities Receive Failing Grade When Remembering 9/11

    HERNDON, VA - Young America's Foundation has more than 200 student groups signed up to participate in this year's 9/11: Never Forget Project.

    The 9/11: Never Forget Project-which consists of flag memorials, moments of silence, and candlelight vigils across the country-was started by Young America's Foundation in 2003 when the Foundation noticed that most college and high school campuses were doing little, if anything, to honor the 2,977 innocents murdered on 9/11. Since then, the project has been done on thousands of campuses nationwide.  

    Young America's Foundation President Ron Robinson said, "We started this project in 2003 when 9/11 was still a recent memory. Today's college and high school students were between three and eleven-years-old when our nation was viciously attacked by radical jihadists on September 11, 2001.

    "As students become less personally connected to the events of 9/11, the more important Young America's Foundation's 9/11: Never Forget Project becomes."

    Surprisingly, the same students who are barely old enough to remember 9/11 are the ones now organizing their communities to memorialize the attacks. This year as well as in the past, university administrations have done little, if anything, to commemorate 9/11 on their campuses.

    Or worse, students receive lectures on "social justice" or other politically correct topics. YAF student Rachel Jankowski from the University of Michigan went to a candlelight vigil last year where she says students "were lectured on the hardships Muslims faced in the aftermath of the attacks. Rather than focusing on the victims and their families, it became a forum for minorities to discuss the discrimination and persecution they have faced in the United States over the past ten years."

    Thankfully, students like Rachel are stepping up to lead where their universities have failed.

    Ron Meyer, spokesman for Young America's Foundation, said, "It's up to young Americans to remember those lost on 9/11. If young people are the future, we better start preserving our future history. We certainly can't trust that responsibility to higher education."

    • Typical of our curent "student", overall so called recession status I'd say after reviewing the article on the terrorist attack. It saddens me deeply to see a nation where its citizens, not all of course are having to face basically an infrastructural conspiracy of certain bullyish in the workplace individuals that they are like feudal age European lords, whim are so engrossed in inhumanity, purposelly impoverishing the masses, owning not only all the commodity but the people as well, without their, "recessed" knowledge and for reason of even insanity basically yet covered by a cosmetic, civilized image mostly and even religiouslly pursecuting in a sense that their is such a malice, inhumane power at work that America itself, the "melting pot", the "land of opportunity" that our forefathers fled to to escape from insane, royal , feudal human hunting eccentrics basically, is becoming the insane private hunting reserve for certain wealth and power holding "lords" basically, right here in our nation, abusing the constitution and the power of authority of the land.

    • So sad that some in leftist campus circles have focused away from the real victims those who were killed on 911. Those are the victims we don't need a lecture on tolerance every year it is a day to mourn and remember and to realize evil does exist not a day for politically correct fluff.

    • I would like to show appreciation to the wreitr just for bailing me out of such a challenge. Just after researching through the the web and seeing thoughts that were not productive, I was thinking my entire life was over. Existing without the presence of answers to the difficulties you have resolved through your short post is a serious case, as well as the ones which could have badly damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the website. Your primary training and kindness in touching all things was priceless. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this impressive and result oriented help. I will not be reluctant to recommend your web site to anybody who would need care about this subject.
