Hundreds of schools across the country are preparing to pay tribute to the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of one of the most dreadful days in American history.

Students will come together to place 2,977 American flags–one for each victim murdered at the hands of radical Islamists–in the ground.

Young America’s Foundation has proudly organized the 9/11: Never Forget Project since 2003. Since the project’s conception, YAF student activists have planted more than 14 million flags on their campuses and in their communities.
