A&M Conservatives Honor the 9/11 Victims

Posted by Tony Listi on September 15, 2008

The Young Conservatives of Texas at Texas A&M University joined students across the country in remembering the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. On the week of the anniversary of the attacks, YCT A&M created a memorial in the Academic Plaza comprised of 2,977 American flags, one for each person tragically killed in the attacks.

“Seven years after the tragic terrorist attacks, it is important that all Aggies take a moment to remember those who died on 9/11,” said Tony Listi, chairman of the YCT A&M Chapter. “We should never forget the price of ignoring the deadly terrorist threat posed by radical Islamic extremists.”

Each year Young America’s Foundation helps students across the country properly remember the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks through its 9/11: Never Forget Project.  Young America’s Foundation began this program in 2003 when it discovered that most college campuses were either completely ignoring the anniversary of the terrorist attacks or scheduling a politically-correct activity instead.

Over 180 schools across the country are participating this year in the 9/11: Never Forget Project.
