    Tenth Anniversary of 9/11: Are College Students Too Young to Remember?

    Hundreds of students are signing up for the 9/11: Never Forget Project, in spite of the Left’s attempts to ignore history.

    HERNDON, VA – Today’s college students were between eight and twelve-years-old when our nation was viciously attacked by radical jihadists on September 11, 2001. For them, 9/11 is defined as a scary childhood memory and maybe an event they heard about in grade school.

    These students must remember 9/11 as more than just a historic date.

    In 2003, just two years after the attack, Young America’s Foundation noticed that most college and high school campuses were doing little, if anything, to honor the 2,977 innocents murdered on 9/11. To ensure America’s youth would remember the attack, the Foundation created the 9/11: Never Forget Project.

    Sadly, organizing the 9/11: Never Forget Project on campuses has fallen primarily to students, rather than their school administrators. The Project includes: constructing American flag memorials (with 2,977 flags) at a prominent location on campuses, scheduling campus-wide moment of silences, hosting conservative speakers, and distributing buttons and posters to their fellow students.

    Today, 9/11 is being hijacked by the Obama administration and the Left as a politically correct “national day of service.” The 9/11: Never Forget Project is one way young Americans correct this bland, revisionist approach and properly remember those murdered by Islamic extremists on that fateful September morning.

    Young America’s Foundation already has more than 200 colleges signed up to participate this year, and the list continues to grow daily. The 9/11: Never Forget Project is also the first monthly activity featured in Young America’s Foundation’s widely-distributed Campus Conservative Battleplan.

    Speakers for this year’s 9/11: Never Forget Project include Marc Thiessen, President George W. Bush’s chief speechwriter and author of Courting Disaster, and Fabrizio Bivona, first responder and author of Gone But Not Forgotten, Thiessen will speak at Georgia Tech and Emory University, and Bivona will address students at Temple University and Tennessee Wesleyan University.

    Young America’s Foundation is an educational organization promoting conservative ideas on our nation’s campuses through lectures, publications, and conferences. During the last year, the Foundation sponsored more than 600 lectures, including addresses by Governor Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Karl Rove, Ben Stein, and Steve Forbes. In 1998, Young America’s Foundation saved the Reagan Ranch, and with the Reagan Ranch Center in downtown Santa Barbara, uses it to educate young people about Reagan’s ideas.

    • I'm the idiot anonymous cotmenmer, and I applaud your pick.I didn't think there was any way that MU coulda beat Memphis...I watch a lot of Big 12 ball, and figured Mizzou's poor shooting and frequently inconsistent play woulda have been trumped by Memphis' stout defense and equal physicality.I know it was a 3-2 game, but I didn't think this one was gonna be close. You called it, congrats.

    • Even though I like this <a href="http://xrmvet.com">seiers</a> of posts I have to strongly disagree here:1) 23-year old wasn't athletic enough to collect blocks/steals/defRebs in NCAA against mostly younger opponents? How is it not a damning red flag which suggests NBA players will eat him alive?2) his value lies entirely in the eFG%, which is insane, but he attempted 8 shots a game. We don't have hoopdata for NCAA (do we?) but I would guess that at least 4 of them were layups or dunks which he won't have in the NBA because of 1).

    • Thanks, Helen! It does seem like a logical place to go if gitteng a PhD doesn't work out. The key is to find out whether it's something you love or just a fall-back position. For me, I discovered that I really do love being a librarian! http://axeckf.com [url=http://arvwwwlhp.com]arvwwwlhp[/url] [link=http://uercbynp.com]uercbynp[/link]

    • I love the top helmet and the white/black unis. I dont think they are nraley as over the top as some of the other stuff we've seen come from nike lately. (UGA's unis from last year comes to mind where the only good thing about them were the helmets.) http://qvuopuzdc.com [url=http://pembce.com]pembce[/url] [link=http://qchtpd.com]qchtpd[/link]
