Organizations from the University of Alabama will honor the 2,977 victims who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with a flag display and a stair climb on Wednesday. The group will present the 9/11: Never Forget Project. This project is in collaboration with Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and is “the largest nationwide campus activism project of its kind, students at schools across the country annually display 2,977 American flags to remember those murdered at the hands of radical Islamists more than a decade ago.” “It’s an honor to be given the opportunity to memorialize the lives lost on that tragic day,” said Joseph Ballard, National Board of Governors Member of Young Americans for Freedom. “First responders are heroes and this small act is a reminder of how lucky we are to have them.”
