  • Whitewashing 9/11

    Matthew Vadum in the American Spectator has a piece on the Obama Administration's efforts to remove all references to the Islamic attacks on September 11 and turn it into another generic day of service.

    Unfortunately, this effort to make September 11 politically correct has been ongoing on college campuses for years. One year at the University of Iowa, no formal memorial services were planned. Instead, the socialist groups on campus held a peace fest to protest the war in Iraq. At Vanderbilt University, this school scheduled a panel called, "After 9/11: A Time for Reflection" which included nine professors and a moderator, but it did not include one conservative professor, much less a fair-minded professor, to present an alternative view on 9/11, its aftermath, and the war against radical Islam. During the program, James Laweson, a visiting professor of divinity, said that slavery, racism and Native American genocide inspried the 9/11 attacks.

    Since 2003, Young America's Foundation has worked to ensure that college and high school campuses properly remember this day through the 9/11: Never Forget Project. Each year, hundreds of campuses create an American flag memorial which consists of 3,000 flags to remember each person killed in the terrorist attacks. We provide students with free materials, advice, and other information on how to get involved.

    • I\'d know who Piet Mondrian was for years, but his work, and that of other modern paitners, didn\'t make any sense to me until I went to Chicago. We were in the modern section of the art museum, and I turned a corner and wound up facing this vivid, bright piece of colors and geometry. I sat on the floor and sketched it and stared at it for an hour. Whenever I think of that piece by Mondrian, I feel happy, and I cry a little
