    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    September 4, 2014 

    More Than 200 Campuses Nationwide Participate in 9/11: Never Forget Project

    Young Conservatives Display 2,997 American Flags to Honor Lives Lost to Radical Islamists 

     

    NeverForgetgraphicRESTON, VA- Since 2003, Young America's Foundation (YAF) has proudly organized the 9/11: Never Forget Project.  Through this initiative, students at schools nationwide proudly display 2,997 American flags to remember those murdered at the hands of radical Islamists more than a decade ago. 

    More than 200 campuses participate in this project each year, and its popularity continues to increase. The project has even taken a life of its own with schools, businesses, and communities organizing their own displays without notifying us.

    With radical Islam continuing to terrorize the world, it is crucial that our young people and our schools remember the American lives lost and understand the challenges we face today.  

    If it weren't for the Foundation's student activists, most schools would ignore the anniversary of September 11. Even more worrisome the professors who continue to blame America for the attacks.  The Obama administration has even tried to change the meaning of 9/11 by turning the anniversary into a politically correct "national day of service."  They would like us-and particularly, young people- to forget who murdered nearly 3,000 innocent American men, women, and children.

    This September marks 13 years since the tragic terror attacks in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.  September 11, 2014, is also the two-year anniversary of the attacks in Benghazi.  Young America's Foundation's student activists understand the significance of 9/11 and hope to raise awareness about the importance of eradicating terrorism.

    For more information about the 9/11: Never Forget Project and a list of participating schools, please visit our website.
