On the day of September 11th, 2001, the United States was put through the biggest shock ever imaginable.
Out of nowhere, two planes collided into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York. The day continued in horror as multiple other planned attacks occurred, leading to over 2,977 murders.
This attack was the start of our nations war. Over fifteen years ago we can still remember the day we still call the worst terrorist attack in America’s history.
According to foxnews,
For the past two years, the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Southern Methodist University displayed nearly 3,000 American flags on a prominent university lawn to remember those killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
But Old Glory won’t be posted on the Dallas Hall Lawn this year – even though the display had been well-received by the student body.
The university objected to the location of the display, citing a revised policy aimed at protecting students from “harmful or triggering” messages.
“While the University respects the rights of students to free speech, the University respects the right of members of the community to avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing,” the policy reads.
I reached out to Southern Methodist University to find out who could possibly take offense at a memorial honoring American citizens killed by Muslim terrorists. I had my suspicions, but I wanted to hear it from the university’s leadership.
